Well that ended abruptly... a couple of slightly dodgy lbws, I think... and some kamikaze swinging at the end, once hope had been lost for them.

As I understand the winner of one group will *not* progress.

So, depending on results elsewhere, we might need to figure out a way to get some batting bonus points, if we are to make the final? It would also be a good habit to get into for *next year*!

Re: Jamie

Gibson keeps saying he might be off to Surrey at any moment. Supposedly J I D Kerr told Gibson that they will "take it week-by-week."

I would assume that what Kerr means is that, so long as we're in with a chance of winning the comp, we'll keep playing Jamie but that, should we be eliminated at any stage, we will let him go because it would then make more sense to look at Gilchrist or Aldridge... but, IF that's what Jason means, why not say it? And if that's not what he means, why would we be "taking it week-to-week" ?

Mr Gibson said that Jamie told him he doesn't want to leave early.... and, to be honest, the side that Surrey are playing this season looks rather weak, to put it mildly.... so Jamie might have to carry the whole lot if he did go down there.
