Miles outside my area of expertise but I wonder if Chris Woakes would actually pick up fewer injuries if he played more.

I often think the same. Fast bowlers going back years used to play in most if not all formats, bowl over 1000 overs in a season and most of them didn't pick up injuries. I think this is the ECB 'Wrap them up in cotton wool' theory. I remember Woakes coming back from an England tour where he'd played practically no cricket and then being rested (Or told to rest) for the start of a new season. It makes the counties' blood boil when this happens but they don't see to be able to do much about it. The initial reason behind all this was to stop any pace bowler being flogged to death when Test matches ( Woakes wasn't in the last 2 Tests) had just finished and having to get in their cars and drive to a CC game to play the very next day.

Interesting that they add Beer as they need to win wonder if they have prepared a bunsen and are gambling on winning the toss

I see that neither side has played the second spinner.

Good opening partnership, again. Choice of openers finally coming good and bodes well for the future.

Yes those two young lads Bell and Trott are showing promise.

Well done to them. Would be nice to see Trott get over the line, and get one last hundred before he retires.

Report here from Scyld Berry:

I particularly liked:
"After a summer of frenetic batting, this unbeaten partnership of 206 between Bell and Trott was like a week in a sanatorium beside the sea. They did not make unforced errors, they did not play away from their body, they did not hit across the line until they were set, they were never caught off balance and did not get themselves out. They batted like Alastair Cook, in other words, and almost nobody else."

What a lovely description. I’m going to do my absolute best to get down to Edgbaston at some point next week to see Trotty play one last time. So hard to think of a Warwickshire team without him. Him and Dennis Amiss my all time cricketing heros.

Yes, one last hundred away from home and then one at home in the last game v Kent. To finish just like you started just like Cook last week. I remember when he made his debut v Sussex in 2003 having never heard of him. I will be there for all 4 days next week and it will be a real sad day. Great to see the 2 'old boys' dig in and it's a superb position to be in.

Ian Bell does seem to inspire writers to near poetry. Paul Edwards says in his report:
"Batting is what Bell was put on earth to do and when he plays as he did at Hove on the first day of this game he shares his joy with others. It distracts the mind from the many recessionals of autumn; its graceful images remain when points and results are both forgotten."
I certainly couldn't have put it better myself - indeed, not even half so well.

Never mind about Brexit I think there should be a campaign to stop Trexit. Trotty is too good to retire and should be made to carry on and on and on!!

He will certainly be missed by all who watch him play and those of us who follow from a distance.

Century for Trotty. What a man!

I will miss him immensely. I really hope he reconsiders.

Anyone know his average against Sussex over the years? I swear he always hits a century against them.
