I see Dom Bess captain of the seconds today.

Seven wickets for 42 for Ben Green, Pete Trego did not bowl.
We might struggle to get the target of 280.

Banton scores a century which elicits no applause from the fielders. He and Byrom seem to be scoring off every ball.

I was at the Radlett ground yesterday afternoon prospecting prior to the 1st XI game on 1st May. This had nothing to do with the fact that my wife's ukulele group was practising in my home!

Very friendly folk at Radlett CC.

What Bobstan doesn't know - and nobody must tell him - is that his wife's ukelele band (hugely amplified) has been booked to play between every over at the RLODC match on 1st May.

Alas, poor Surrey were all out for 88 against Gloucestershire today in their first RLODC match.

Surrey 88 ao v Gloucester. No one likes to see that!!!

So 100's for Byrom and Banton
7 wickets for Green
Trego and Van der Merwe surely selected.
Hildreth and Abell middle order backbone?
Davis or Banton to keep?
Jamie or Craig?
Any room for Ali in the side?
Leachy /max or Bess ?
Groenswald.Brooks ,or neither

Nice selection problems for Friday.

Baffling. Glocs lost their second wicket at 156 and both teams then folded. The Surrey side was mostly their championship one. Poor shot selection? Is Burns the best captain? Presumably they'll cpme back stronger. Oh dear

The Ukelele Orchestra of Great Britain have a lot to answer for. They are rather marvellous though. The good the bad and the ugly is one of my favourites.
B
ack to cricket (!) having read a post informing me there was a live stream I tuned in just in time to see Mr. Banton take 20 from an over from Barber( I think) including a reversed 4 and 6. Maybe his time is coming. I was hugely impressed with his performance in the junior wc albeit against 18 yo's.

Banton has got to be a direct replacement for Myburgh but to open with who assuming Trego bats at 3.Ali rather than Davis or Byrom would be my choice.

I guess another one in the eye for Grumpy Gus then?

Great to see Banton is such explosive form.

Shame about Surrey.

Onwards and upwards.

Having left Tom B out of my starting XI for Friday on Facebook I have reviewed my position. Whom to leave out is trickier - we simply have far too many good players.
Strangely, no remotely close matches in today's games - and all won by the side batting first. I share the general sympathy for Surrey - Worcs' game was another that might have been expected to be one-sided the other way.

The Banton and Byrom centuries and Ben Green`s 7-42 were achieved against a Middlesex side of near championship content (six played in their last cc match) and on home territory.

Surely Banton is a cast-iron selection for Friday now, and on the back of Green`s useful batting last season as well as his seven wickets today, I would take a punt on him and not play a spinner this early in the season.

We haven't even considered Bartlett. Is this the year the three 'B"s all establish first team status.

Nothing on the clubs website, on the BBC fixtures it says start is 11am.

In the Fixture listing on club site start time is shown as 11.a.m.


But the match v Essex on Friday the 26th Which is being shown on Sky start time will be 1.p.m. also time shown on fixture list on club site.

A picture on facebook shows the left hand side of the Botham stand covered with black side screen, so I guess the wicket is just west of centre.

I assume they've fixed the problem with the family/Ondaatje stands?
