He slipped and a ball that should have been one went for 4. Thing is, it was his bowling at the end that helped get us so close. How easily people criticise without acknowledging the good stuff.
Wow he got a tailender out who could hardly get a bat on ball!! Fielding error was something you see at under 11's level!!

Ridiculous comment; he was our most economical bowler and one of the main reasons we were still in with a chance of winning.
Bears fan, Wolves fan, blood red Socialist, a not so vital statistician; what a collection...

Have to say it was a great advert for the County game, gutting to get it so close though. Needed much more from our top order.

On another matter,it really is time the club improved their catering.There was an almost comical stampede for the local fish and chip shop during the interval-it speaks volumes for the fare on offer inside the ground!

David Heath Suite was unable to serve coffee from about 6pm, because they had no outdoor cups left!

At least we did one heck of a lot better than last year - so many positives to take this season. Now lets concentrate on winning the T20 before marching on to promotion to Div ! in the competition that really matters

Despite the dissapionting result what a game of cricket. Probably in the top 10 games of 1 day cricket i have seen live in my life since becoming a member in 1980. The ebbs and flows of the whole day. Great character from the team in not giving up. Perhaps not the best bowling in the first 15/20 overs. For those who were their or watching on TV be interesting to know your thoughts on my point if it is valid or not. Probably missed Thomason's bowling but of course he probably wouldn't of scored the runs Rhodes got. Massive improvement on last year.

From  the comfort of my armchair, I would agree that it was an outstanding game.
As for Barker's mis-field, these things happen!  Actually, Barker hit the last ball of the Warwickshire innings to Callum Ferguson and he let it go for four so the two mis-fields cancelled each other out.
My only other thought (because I never let go of my hobby horses) is whether a second spinner would have made a crucial difference.  I'm not really counting Sibley as a spinner but his one over suggests that Patel would have really liked another genuine spinner.  The two Worcestershire spinners bowled 16 overs for 68 runs and three wickets.
Anyway, no shame in losing a match like that.
Now let's get back to the four-day stuff.

I watched most of it on TV although some of it from behind the sofa at the end.  (I can handle the despair its the hope that gets you).  Perhaps you're being a touch hard on the bowlers rednalbear, Flowin Moeen was on great form, we could have had him a couple of times and if we did it's a different game.  Perhaps our one drawback in the 50 overs is Trott, Bell and Hain are all (excellent) innings builders and three of those type of players is one (or even two) too many.  Was Hose injured?
Will be at the ground tomorrow.

Hose was injured. The other factor was that Trott and Bell have been in great form so for both of them to fail is unusual - & costly. Other highlights for me were Pollock’s stunning one handed catch & Sibley’s excellent fielding. For such a big chap, he’s very agile. Saved us quite a few runs. You watched from behind a sofa, I watched at the ground through fingers. Such an atmosphere!

I think reebank sums it up.... . You can handle the despair its the hope that gets you.

I still remember Streak nearly getting 50 runs off the last two overs in a match a few years ago to beat Worcs.. we fell so tantalisingly close. These type of games stay with you a long time... You remember every detail ... Even the trip home. For some reason you seem to remember them more than the victories.... They are what the game is about....they make the victories feel special.

Shame we didn't make it through, we'd have surely put up a better show of it than Yorkshire currently are. 5/2

I think it would have made far more sense to have 4 qualifiers from each group, then with a proper quarter final round.

Change for the sake of it. Just a silly gimmick which actually deprives the Group winners of a potential home quarter final.

They will probably say it is to help relieve a congested fixture list. And then you look to see how long the gap is between the end of the Glamorgan game and Warks next game and you ask - what congestion.
