The updated average make interesting reading, and show the contribution to the improved performances made by Pollock, Hose Thomason and Sibley.

Don't forget Olly Stone.

Indeed, nor should we forget the contribution of OHD, who is taking a wicket every two overs & has taken 12 wickets so far in the competition.
While Robert may be bad, Robert is not all Mugabe's.
There are GOOD Mugabe's
It is Warwickshire County Cricket Club!

OHD seems better suited to bowl 4 overs rather than RL Cup games where you feel as though the opposition size him up for a few overs and get stuck into him. At the beginning of the season he lost a lot of confidence after the mauling he got v Lancs but hopefully now he will be able to turn in more good performances. He has played a major part in the 2014 T20 and 2016 RL Cup triumphs and is a really decent human being who has always had time for supporters.

My colleague Ciaran Thomas sets out all the qualification permutations:
http://deepextracover.com/2017/08/t20-bl...rth-group/
So, as he says:
"Birmingham Bears currently sit second on 15 points, but with only one game to play – Lancashire away on Friday night – they will be watching results closely this week to know what they need to do going up to Old Trafford.

As it stands, a win would be enough unless all the following were to happen: Northants take at least three points from games against Yorkshire and Durham; Leicestershire beat Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire, having lost to Leics, beat Durham and Worcestershire. That scenrio would see three (If Northants win twice, or four should they get a tie/no result in one of their games) level on 17 points, with net run-rate deciding the final two qualifies (Or three depending on Northants).
With Edgbaston hosting Finals Day, the Bears could secure home advantage throughout the knock-out stages with a win, if Northants lose one of their remaining games, or Derybshire win two, in which case it would go down to NRR, or three Derbyshire win would see them take a home tie.
The Bears could also go through with a defeat, but that would likely come down to a net run-rate battle, with the potential for up to six teams all finishing on 15 points."

All clear?  You may be tested on it later.

I totally agree and really glad you took the time to point out his strengths. Some of the comments about him on here and from muppets in the crowd are so personal, unpleasant and disproportionate and clearly fail to recognise his contribution for us, for starters in the final last year at Lords. He comes across as delightful at club events and always has time to talk to people.
