Only the top 3 in each group qualify this year, so it is even more important that we win our first three matches when we have all 5 of our England players available. None of the 5 will be available for the quarter-finals, semi-finals and maybe not even the Final if we get there.

From the ECB

The knockout stages have changed this season, with only the top three from each group qualifying. The winners will progress straight to the semi finals on June 16 and 17, in which they will enjoy home advantage. Their opposition will be determined by two play-offs on June 13 between the teams finishing second and third in each group – second in the North Group at home to third in the South, and vice versa.
Listening to R5SX flitting around trying to find some cricket it looks like we dodged a bullet by not having a match today.

A couple of results, even though effected by D/L show that it doesn't always happen that the strongest team on paper gets the result.

Touch wood the weather seems to be on the up.

Not that I ever sit there but it looks like the Western terrace will be closed on Monday, according to the club's Twitter page, so they can't be expecting that many

What a stunning win today for Somerset
I wonder how Sangakarra feels after dropping Elgar off Sam Curran when the score was about 30 for 5.

Presumably you mean Somerset. I stopped looking at Cricinfo at 38 for 5 thinking it was a foregone conclusion but just "WOW" by van der Merwe, his first 50 over century in an amazing escape.

Whoops of course I meant Somerset, now corrected in my original post.

Stunning win for Leicestershire, too, at Old Trafford - 9.30 pm finish! Great scheduling. Young kid Zak Chappell smashing (or edging) 13 off an Anderson over to get them over the line.

Looks like today's matches are going our way - Notts & Billy Root pegging back Derbyshire while unless Warwickshire chase 363 down their NRR will suffer. And us with a pretty strong squad for the next few matches...

Couple of nail biters today and as others have said before it's nice to pick a side, but not be too concerned if they don't win.

I picked Essex today purely because they weren't Surrey and they got over the line.

The YCCC site has our game as a 11am start whereas the Northants site it's a 14:00 start. Could someone confirm which is correct. Thanks in advance.

Sorry I should have said for next Wednesday's RLC game.

BBC has the match at Northants next Wednesday starting at fourteen o'clock.

Just had a cracking finish Northants v Worc, ended in a tie.

Good result for us as it's not a good result for either of them.
