At Arundal tomorrow, it's been hammering down all day here today but I may venture along tomorrow as I'm only 45 mins away and if it's dry.

We've got Hampshire at 10.30, Lancashire are on afterwards (can't remember who they play!)

Hopefully will be a successful day, it's certainly a nice place to watch cricket

Good luck to the lads. As our 1st team has declined, our 2nds seem to have improved with the 50 over trophy in the bag already and a chance of another limited overs title tomorrow. Hopefully it means promising signs for the future but as we've seen with Brook, it's difficult to make the breakthrough with the team struggling and morale low.

Unfortunately their tends to be little correlation between success at Second Team level and impending First Team success: our Seconds won sod all when Root, Bairstow, Lees etc were coming through while Leics have been the dominant side in Second XI cricket in recent years. They seem to be our only hope of silverware this year though, so good luck to them!

Good luck from me as well.

I've seen several of the group games. Key points seem to be if you can seek in a player or two with first team experience that's a massive help, they tend to do well. In our games Lees, Fisher and Gibson have performed well but all are missing finals day. They'll be a loss.

Our spinners have done well (Craver and Shutt) I think its possible we'll play three slow bowlers and also include Logan.

We've lots of very good cricketers rather than stand out stars, so who knows. However with the bat a lot depends on Rhodes, Tattersall and Waite to make a significant score.

Hopefully they'll be a twitter feed somewhere to keep us up to date.

Bit of a stuffing. Looked a much weakened side. I suppose there are eligibility rules, but why no Brooks, Lees, Siddy, Brook, Coad, Hodd or any other of our players not playing tomorrow. After all, they could do with the practice.

I notice the Hampshire side had three recent first teamers playing, we had none.

We batted like we had somewhere else to go pretty quickly, the points above are valid in that we had little experience but it wasn't good.
