Quote from: Thursday on May 13, 2022, 03:55:09 PMCan't help but feel every County Cricket game currently having a team near 600 runs suggests teams aren't really being prepared for test match conditions.

It isn't a coincidence. I think the idea is to get some batsmen confident and in form coming into the test series.

Presumably England will prepare flatter pitches too, not the green seamers we've seen in the last decade.

No excuses and no hiding place if they still fail.

Yeah, a mate was at Headingley yesterday and said it's a complete road.

I quite fancied going up for the last session after work but the ticket office refused to answer their phone as I wanted to know if they did reduced entry, so they can bloody whistle for my money.

Not working for Zak Crawley by the looks of it

Remarkably similar set of CC matches going on.

Andrew Symonds dead in a car crash, according to Twitter.

I remember that double ton against us in the 2007 pasting.

"A controversial character on and off the field", he'd be described as.

Wow, yet another for the died young cricketer thread

Always remember him laughing off being selected for Eng A, you'd have thought they'd have asked him if he wanted to play for them first. Still the ECB were desperate at the time for anyone who might not be dogshit.

Harry Badger

#2826
He got absoutely cunted at Walkabout in Cardiff in 2005 and showed up for the ODI against Bangladesh falling-down drunk. He also once hit 15 sixes in one innings against Glamorgan.

A Legend Gary even by Aussie standards but he was a fucking good batsman on his day and always entertaining to watch, up there with Freddie, KP, Carl Hooper, Jayasuriya and Mark Waugh on that front.

Pope at 3



WHY



What more do we have to do to stop this fucking crap, everyone has left and been replaced and they're still fucking making these basic errors.

Apparently he's been hitting them really well in the nets and we all know Popey lad is one knock away from a big one.

Brook in because runs (fine)
Potts in because wickets (fine)

Crawley in because... (insert reason)

Meanwhile, Pope has apparently never played a first class innings in the position England are now asking him to. After famously also asking him to do that on debut and it failing. Can't see that going wrong...

Don't want to cast aspersions or anything but a quick google of "Zak Crawley Rob Key" does throw up at least one tweet alleging that Key is actually Crawley's dad, such is his obsession with making Crawley out to be a test match batter.

Look mate, can you stop being so negative? This is all about positive intent, we want players that can take the game by the scruff of the neck and move it forward. We've absolutely never tried that before and when we do go out and throw the bat at absolutely everything when we're chasing 180 on a wicket that's doing a bit it's 100% going to work.

Jofra out for another summer then. Well done Joe!

After a couple of competent games, Somerset's batting back to its usual level. 2 down when I left work, all out for 69 when I got back home.

Bangladesh equalled the record for the most ducks in a test match innings against Sri Lanka this morning yet still posted 365. Pretty wonky scorecard.

Mushfiqur and Litton with the centuries there.

king_tubby

The counties are complaining the 100 is meaning T20 sales are low. Maybe don't charge £30+ for tickets then?

About time Litton Das stepped up. FC record is easily good enough. Shakib and Mushy are getting on.
