    Leach left out again, absolute farce. Disgraceful the way he's treated by the management of this side. Even worse decision by India to leave out Ashwin!

    Looks like Exeter are about to lose Joel Randall to Peterborough for around £1.5m. Another academy graduate makes the step up for big money but it's getting frustrating now. Recruitment this summer has been underwhelming after being told we were in our best position ever to make marquee signings, now we're at a point where the squad is weaker than last year.

    Vieira generally played attacking football with Nice so I imagine he'll look to do the same with Palace. Could do with a striker better than Benteke/Mateta though. I think there's 50% chance they do okay and 50% that it's a complete disaster and he's sacked by Christmas

    Interesting to see how they'll do this year after losing so much experience. Vieira was unconvincing as a manager at Nice but they've actually made some good signings to be fair. Olise is a bargain at £8m, Andersen did well for Fulham last year and Guehi was superb at Swansea. Conor Gallagher a good talent also, he should do well in a side that will look to attack more than West Brom.

    Some entertaining matches in the 50 over comp in the last couple of days despite the rain. On Tuesday we had Middlesex just falling short against Durham and Surrey making 311 in just 30 overs against Notts. And yesterday Somerset defending 180 with the final ball going for 4 when Glamorgan needed 6. Good to see so many young players taking their chances. Some of those who will spend a month sat on the bench for their Hundred side might end up regretting it

    Covid-19 Are we being told the truth ?

    Obviously not 100% reliable as Jon Rahm found out last week. He needed to have 3 PCR tests to enter Japan for the Olympics and 1 showed up positive

    Covid-19 Are we being told the truth ?

    56% of hospital admissions as of last Thursday according to the Daily Telegraph. These are the statistics they should be showing, not trying to scare everyone that hospitals are about to be overwhelmed when clearly that isn't the case

    2nd viewing was the game at Edgbaston on Friday. Good match albeit in front of a crowd that looked no bigger than a T20 fixture. Take away the free tickets and it would no doubt be much lower. Also watched the game at Trent Bridge on Saturday afternoon. Was clear that Sky had been told to push the family narrative more. Nasser at the end was stressing how the atmosphere was more family based and not the 'usual T20 crowd'. Those mums and kids obviously learnt the words to 'Don't take me home' quickly given it was being sung for half of the match

    Amusing to see so many overseas players go straight from the 'mediocre' T20 Blast to this 'world class' competition. 16 of them in total plus another 5 who've played in recent years leaving just 5 who haven't before. Watched the first hour on Sky before the Sheffield-Peterborough meeting, less gimmicky than I expected and the commentary wasn't as dumbed-down as I thought it might be but I couldn't really get interested in it. All that's different is the amount of publicity that Sky and BBC are giving this, could easily have been done without alienating so many current supporters.

    Bairstow recalled to the Test side yet again Root (capt), Anderson, Bairstow, Bess, Broad, Burns, Buttler, Crawley, S Curran, Hameed, Lawrence, Leach, Pope, Robinson, Sibley, Stokes, Wood edit; Hameed's just reached his 100 against a strong Indian attack in their warm-up game. Deserves an opportunity ahead of either Sibley or Crawley now

    Covid-19 Are we being told the truth ?

    Yesterday: Uproar because Boris Johnson might not isolate. Today: "Some fully vaccinated frontline NHS staff in England will be allowed to carry on working if exposed to someone with Covid". This is apparently fine. What's the difference? If anything it's more dangerous for NHS staff to not isolate considering that they are treating vulnerable patients

    Brutal innings from Livingstone last night, he's really stepped up a level in the last few years. A shame he couldn't get England over the line but from Morgan's comments a couple of days ago it seems they're more interested in giving the squad players a final opportunity ahead of the T20 World Cup.

    Yeah, was going okay from an England point of view until Somerset bizarrely didn't enforce the follow-on. 1-99 in the 1st innings and Leach dismissed him first ball, now suddenly he'll be full of confidence. Still don't see the point really, Surrey had basically no chance of qualifying to the next stage so I can only imagine they got a decent amount of £££ from the BCCI. If overseas players want to stick around after a tour then great but we shouldn't be giving them such ideal preparation before a series.

    Looks like the county season is about to descend into chaos. Derbyshire have pulled out of their last 2 T20 games because of Covid issues and Kent currently have 17 players missing. The 50 over tournament is set to be scrapped as with those issues plus the Hundred starting it basically leaves counties without enough players. Will be interesting to see if squads for the Hundred have to stay in bubbles/hotels. Surely the ECB can't have afford to have their shiny new toy breaking because a whole squad has to isolate?

    Great moment for him. Probably didn't expect to get another chance and even now might not get another opportunity. Superb series win considering the lack of experience in the side, just highlights how strong the depth is in ODIs/T20
