Willey's injury looked pretty bad, doubt he'll play. Lees will probably replace him, we can cover his bowling fairly easily

I'd give Lyth the first over, we did well the year Root bowled the first over

Presume we have lost Willey which is a shame.

Whatever you may think of his bowling he is a possible match winner with the bat.

I think I'd go for Waite rather than Lees as a replacement.

Might even think about batting Plunkett at 3.

He was lost against the death bowlers yesterday but might prosper earlier on.

A good call Geoff, I would also go for Waite if Willey is injured. I find Lees similar to Marsh in this format soaking up far too many balls for not a great return.

I would prefer Waite for Willey, if David is not fit. He does give us the extra bowler, just in case, as well.

We have had a very poor return this season so far from our overseas players, especially in this comp. Hanscomb, Marsh & Safraz all eat up far to many dot balls, and Safraz, at the last count, has missed three catches and three stumpings and let several byes through which should have been stopped. Not impressed at all with any of the three.

Pakistan are not renowned for producing great keepers. The last one of any quality was probably Wasim Bari

Looking at the table, I think we still need two wins to qualify.

Derbyshire have a game in hand and play the bottom three sides, so will probably finish above us, and Notts look certain to finish top. Northants & Warwickshire (the teams, with us, fighting for 3rd & 4th place) both have Durham to play, who are currently in the last place.

Not sure if it affects today's game.

Looking forward to travelling down for the game today
And Glenn McGrath dismissed for 2 just 98 runs short of his century.
