They seem to be coming thick and fast and in the absence of anything else to watch on 900 channels I end up being drawn in each evening if the wife is out.

Last night Derby chased down Worcts decent score of 180 odd with relative ease. Some of the bowling on both sides was rank awful with derby using the spin option of Luis Reece (ex Leeds Met Uni and Lance) which he had only started practicing on Sunday. Some impressive big hitting from Clarke, Whiteley and the Duke John Hastings but Derby used several spin options including Reece Madsen but sadly not the new Afghanistani born wunderkid Qadri.

In reply they chased them down at a canter thanks to Godleman nearly batting through and Madsen using all his hockey skills to reverse hit/sweep/pull according to Allott Butch and Corky in the pod.

Good to see a game not dominated by expensive overseas hires but frankly the quality of the bowling was woeful along with the catching (or dropping) with skipper Leach dropping a dolly (perhaps wholly appropriate in view of him playing for Worcestershire) and then debutant Broderick dropping a sitter which made you think he missed out on Grandads genes as the old boys were keen to let us know his grandad was former 1970s keeper Colin Boulton.

Can't help but feel Wainwright is a better spin option than Reece for Derby but they let him go too soon. And Worcester needed another big hitter at the top of the order but the promising Kohler Cadmore seems to have moved away....
It's alarming the amount of overseas or kolpacks on show tonight. Leics had 6, Hants had 6, and most of the the teams this season have averaged 4 or 5.

At least Durham are not abusing the system.

Durham can't afford to abuse it having breached salary caps before and been hammered with points deductions for financial mismanagement.

Last night they had Stokes in the pod. Surely he could have played with the next test a week away

Agree with you Geoff re Cricinfo scorecards. What a mess they are now!!

Found them eventually, but it`s hard work to get what you want to see.

Meanwhile in south London the KP circus came to town as he began with a comedy sketch in the pod claiming he could bat in englsndcurrent toporder with no pads and left handed. Perhaps he could have a net on this basis first facing Morkel and Rabada as he will have their mobile numbers in his phone based on his previous series against South Africa.

Then he ambles out at number 3 with Finch on fire at the other end. He bats right hsnddd with pads on, sets off for a single and manages to run out Finch in the process. Then he remembers he has a dicky calf so needs treatment and a runner. But three days ago he didn't manage to field in the second innings due to the same injury so this should not have been allowed surely.

Once out he returns to the dugout and fails to appear for the twenty overs of fielding. Surrey should not have been allowed a replacement in my view as again it was a pre match injury.

To cap it all Stirling came out to bat at three for Middlesex and was told he couldn't bat for another ten minutes as he had been off the pitch for the end of the Surrey innings.

You couldn't make it up.

Clearly Surrey and the ECb are desperate to get bums on seats and want their star names to play at any price sacrificing fairness and the spirit of the game.

Cricket once again moves nearer to an American sport but this time American Football as teams can select squads and allow different players to do specialist roles and then sit in the dugout watching once they have batted.

The sooner he goes back to finish his lodge in Africa or to join another t20 circus elsewhere the better.

Agree TU. Only picked up the interview and the details on Sky Sports late last night as I was at Headingley, and it was, as you stated, a complete circus, and should not have been allowed to happen. Finch looked to be fuming when he was run out.

Hopefully Finch made his feelings on the matter clear. KP will see last night as a success, he has the headlines, what more could anyone want?

There was are replay of the match on Sky today, and at the end Hussain made matters a lot worse by stating "Everyone had come to the Oval to see KP play, so it would have been a big disappoinment for all if he hadn`t, so that was ok that he played"

So it`s ok to break the rules and etiquette of cricket just for 1 player!! He came into the match injured,so he should not have been allowed a runner or a sub fielder. Simple as!!

The big boys will be sick as parrots losing that on D/L.

Don't know if the rain was expected so early but shows how important it is to get your noses in front when chasing.

Does peg Northants back and a win tomorrow could see us go top.

Getting beyond a joke now!! Glamorgan had 8 overseas players in their team last night.
