It`s the battle of the "overseas" players at OT. Lancashire have 4, Hampshire trump them with 5.

Can not see what is wrong with each County being allowed 1.

I always thought he wasted his talent through not being prepared to knuckle down fitness-wise.
With his SLA he should have been a regular in the England squads.
Similarly Ravi Bopara who is back to scoring runs, could/should have been in the oneday England squads if not the Test side.
I can't help but feel they've both rather squandered their undoubted talent.
Kyle Abbott again showing what a good Kolpak addition he's been for Hampshire.
Local boy George Bailey doing well too.

As has been said recently though, how many games has Samit Patel missed through injury?

The best case we can really hope for is two more draws in the other matches. Not convinced Lancs or Warks have what it takes to hold on though. Essex still going at an average run rate despite being 140 overs into their innings with the current partnership nearing 200.

Interesting first 4 for the Lions. All openers - Stoneman, Hameed, Jennings & Gubbings. I wonder which 2 will join Cook in the England team. Hameed already out!!

Division 2, so of only academic interest, but anyone else thinking Leics might be regretting the decision to insert Notts?

At current rate I suggest Yorkshire adopt the four openers policy as the first two don't tend to last that long

Some lad called Bairstow is batting for England against South Africa 2s in a T20 friendly at the moment. Anyone know who he is?

4 Openers policy will only work if it means we are allowed to play 13.
