County Championship 2015
#1
Amazing to see that after being 5/1 at the start of the season we are now 5/4 favourites to win the championship! I'm sure part of this change is as a result of us drawing with Yorkshire but I imagine that a large part of it is down to Trotty's decision to retire.

Oh, they must have just updated that because I looked at Oddschecker just before posting! Presumably a result of Middlesex's win over Durham.

I wonder if Bell and Trott are available. I believe Moeen is!

That would give Dougie a wonderful decision to make, who to leave out!

It would be amazing if both Trott and Bell were available for our next match.

Interesting to see that Durham were skittled by Middlesex for only 71 today with Harris getting a 9-for. A bizarre match all round really - first innings scores of 463 and 294 and second innings scores of 89 and 71!

Early doors but Somerset looking like relegation candidates

Yes, bad start for Somerset. Looking at their batting you would think it was ok - not great but ok. Nevertheless, they've had a couple of nasty collapses. Talk at the club seems to focus on T20, for which they will have Chris Gayle and the Great Alfonso to boost the squad. Maybe that's taken their mind off the bread and butter stuff.

Agreed, I don't see a lot of quality in that side anymore, particularly with the losses of Buttler, Peterson and Compton over the last season or so.

I think they had their own version of Mark Greatbatch until the end of last season so it may take them a while to re-group.

I assume that Porterfield is playing for Ireland on Friday so would n't expect him to play for us at the weekend.

That makes the decision easier, just a shame it's wet so there's been no play at Barnt Green for the second team.

Yorkshire are chartering a private plane to bring their players back.  Maybe Warwickshire will do the same for one of their key players.

Don't suppose they could get on the same plane, could they?

I think the flight is to Leeds and they are already giving James Vince a lift.  So it would have to be a parachute job as they pass over Edgbaston.

Did we have one of our "key players" involved?

There are commercial flights available from Dublin to both Birmingham & East Midlands until quite late in the evening, so there's no reason he couldn't fly back.

Ah, Mugabe.  If you didn't rise so readily to the bait, I'd be much less eager to cast it in your direction.  I'm sure you're right about Birmingham flights.  Anyway, no Ian Bell; and Trotty to be sorted locally:

They must think that Ian Bell's two innings at Barbados tired him out.

So they can have Moeen Ali who is just returning from injury but we cannot use Bell who, the century aside, struggled for form and could do with some time at the crease? Madness.
