Warwickshire vs Somerset, Edgbaston BW Trophy
AGod 11 August, 2020 13:12
Anyone remember the last time we went to Edgbaston after a mini heat-wave?

Warks produced a pitch that was unfit for first-class cricket, with numerous batsmen being hit on the head by deliveries that just reared off a length, includng LG.

This game was in 2016 and Neil Mallender reported the pitch as unfit but the ECB, in its infinite wisdom, decided that, since Warks were a TMC, they were not at fault*

As if to add insult to injury, the game was rained off with Warks almost certainly having zero chance of avoiding defeat, facing a large target on an unsafe pitch.





* sorry, the offiical ECB reasoning was that the weather was such - varying from extreme cold to extreme heat - in the days leading up to the game, that there was nothing that poor Warks could have done about it..

Do you mean a circumstance like putting a game close to a knock out in another competition with adverse weather shortening prep time to get the wicket ready.... where have I heard that reasoning being ignored by the same authorities on a non TM ground in recent years?

I wonder at what stage they will release Jack from the England set up to allow him to play any red ball cricket.Seems ridiculous unless they decide to rest Dom

They need concussion replacements.
Being a bubble they cant just send for a player a few hours drive away.
Also anyone could pull up lame during the pre match warm ups.
Not huge fun for Bracey Lawrence Foakes & Jack but they "may" get their chance if in Ageas & ready.

Warwickshire, already missing injured England seamer Olly Stone (one Test against Ireland) against Somerset at Edgbaston on Saturday, will also be without former Gl;o`shire seamer Liam Norwell, who has only played four times since joining at the end of 2018. He is struggling with disc trouble in his back.

They will include medium fast bowler Craig Miles, however. He joined from Glo`shire at the same times as Norwell, but also has a low return of just six first-class appearances for the Midlands county.

Worrying news that Bartlett is still feeling the effects of the concussion. Head injuries can be hard to shift and lead to complications so hope he's ok.

Looks like a fair chance of a reasonable day's play today but very little after that. Bowl first and at least nail three bowling points?

Warwickshire won toss and bat. Lewis Gregory in for Jack Brooks.

It appears there is only a live stream if you are an Edgbaston member.

Official Site suggests a live feed is coming.

Re: Warrwickshire vs Somerset, Edgbaston BW Trophy
mikeindex 15 August, 2020 11:12
Live stream appears to be running now.

Re: Warrwickshire vs Somerset, Edgbaston BW Trophy
Grockle 15 August, 2020 11:36
Live stream but no commentary it seems... COve strikes with Yates caught behind. We seem to have some 'mumbling' as a soundtrack as dort of ambient crowd but nothing else

Might be a silly posting , but I assume people with Smart TV's are aware they can watch YouTube on their TV;s

So much better than a laptop

We're really not going to hold onto Cove for long. Comparing him to Sam Curran is like comparing a Ferrari to a Trabant, for my money.

If you go through the Match Centre on the website first Rob and get it up on Youtube.

If you then go to your Youtube and look in your LIBRARY or HISTORY you will find it there then.

Rob...(I can’t find it on youtube)

While on the live feed on your Laptop, at the bottom right hand corning you have a series of tabs, if you scroll over them, first one on the right is for full screen view on laptop, next to it should be a tab saying watch on TV, click on this tab.
Hope that helps

It is a live feed. It isn't on Youtube until YOU watch it on Youtube. Then it is on YOUR Youtube so you have to watch it there first.

Interesting comments from Anthony Gibson about Jamie leaving.

Commentary will hopefully be linked after lunch. Seems it ls for want of a 'longer lead'. As I posted somewhere else it is all a bit 'cobbled' together at some places.... though I'm sure SKY wouldn't have any problem at Edgbaston of course, it being a Test Match venue of course (TiC)

As Bagpuss tweeted earlier, there are 'livestreams' and then there are SOMERSET livestreams. Little comparison.

I don't think the Warw live stream is anything like as good as ours, but it's better than nothing.

Re: Warrwickshire vs Somerset, Edgbaston BW Trophy

Ridiculous bowling from Craig Overton.

Absolutely ridiculous.

Looking every inch - quality-wise - ready to take on the mantle of the GREAT Andrew Richard Caddick as Somerset's next England opening bowler.

Couldn't have been better. Far, far, far too good for county level batsmen on this form.

The rest were actually a little below-par, I thought (compared to their usual standards, I mean, rather than just compared to Craig).

But, in a way, that's good, since the oppo are not many for 5 with room for improvement from 3 of the 4 main bowlers after lunch!

Re: Warrwickshire vs Somerset, Edgbaston BW Trophy
AGod 15 August, 2020 13:09
As Mr Gibson commented, the case of Craig O might be the first time, in living memory, that an England coaching intervention has actually benefited a bowler and (at least temporarily) their county. Usually they are a disaster. But a bit more pace allied to everything he already had, and Craig looks tickety-boo.

He has found a quicker ball from somewhere and is too damn 'on the money' for the batsmen at the moment.

Good but of umph between Jamie and Lamb as well though I think JOve lost a bit of control for a while.

As Mikeindex says the Warks feed is a hell of a lot better than nothing but it is good that we get and therefore expect better

I agree with AG about Cove - it is difficult to believe that there has been a better session by a pace bowler this season.
What did Anthony Gibson say about Jove's departure?

Re: Warrwickshire vs Somerset, Edgbaston BW Trophy
AGod 15 August, 2020 13:51
For those that are unaware, the Beeb commentary has now been added to the livestream.

Re: Warrwickshire vs Somerset, Edgbaston BW Trophy
sfwithers 15 August, 2020 14:30
Normal service has been resumed – Somerset's seamers doing their sterling stuff. Though given the weather forecast it does appear chances of a result (either way) look slim. And Somerset's batsmen haven't exactly shone yet this season.

Come on!
