Echo that Grockle. Hopefully 2020 will bring further good things to SCCC.

Interesting article in The Guardian re D Bess. Makes reference to Kent “sniffing around”, but also Jason Kerr’s desire to find a way of keeping him at Somerset:

Yorkshire also 'sniffed' and he's still here. But either Leachy has to lose form, become absolutely in dispensible to England or Dom has to bat top 6!!

Kent had Ollie Rayner on loan for part of last season, then in September signed
the 19 year old Afghanistan-born off spinner Hamidullah Qadri having come through the youth ranks at Derbyshire.
Matt Walker Kent Coach said of the signing " We’re signing what we think is a first-team ready bowler at this stage that can grow within this young bowling attack and fit in seamlessly".
So it might not be the best move for Dom to consider, if the rumour is correct.

Apparently Tom Banton has just hit the fastest 50 in the history of the Big Bash, off 16 balls including five sixes in a row.

56 off 19 balls with 7 sixes in an 8 over slog. Match now delayed by rain. Surely Australia need the rain more than the cricket right now

And didn`t Tommy, as the `men of the people` Australian commentators insist on calling him, comes across well in his man-of-the-match interview afterwards, including his reference to Matt Renshaw`s time with Somerset..

Renshaw and Banton combine for this 'catch' in the BBL.

I watched it live and was horrified that the law allows a fielder step out of the field of play jump to pat the ball back infield to be 'caught' by another fielder. The law is an ass!

I may be confused, but I thought I heard the off-field umpire say it was not out.



LoL

The argument was about where the catch started. Renshaw started infield and it seems the rules therefore assume he was 'eligible'

Have to say, the levwl of awareness was exceptional
