    Surely, we have better batsmen in County Cricket than, Denley, Roy, Bairstow and Butler?

    We certainly have better wicket keepers than two of those you mention.

    Possibly but County Cricket is increasingly pushed to the margin to cater for 20 - 20 and, next year, The Hundred.

    If you are a young player, particularly a batsman, why wouldn't you follow the money and adapt your game to make yourself more successful in limited overs? English bating technique is increasingly poor in red ball cricket.

    Utter, utter shite.

    Thank God we see arguably the best football on the planet. That's a consolation. More than a consolation. It may not be the right thread, or even forum, but my thoughts are now turning to Norwich.

    I only managed to watch the first hour.

    What’s a par score here?

    And how has Mitchell Marsh taken four wickets?!

    Was listening to Darren Gough last night and he was saying how much these were earning, just a retainer for the year they are getting £1 million each from the ECB, extra half million for the captain, then £15'000 every test they play, £7'500 one dayers, win bonuses and all sorts of other incentives.

    The Oval has the reputation for producing very high scoring matches. If the wicket has stayed the same as previous years then the Aussies will score heavily.
