Kent RLODC Relentless
Tom Banton and Craig Overton have 'decent' days at the start of the Somerset Royal London One Day Cup as the side take a weakened Kent apart in pretty ruthless fashion. Farmer gives us the long view.
A first day where Lewis moved himself into the top echelons of the Championship with another storming bowling performance. As I'm doing this late I know what happened. Read the reports in order and pretend you don't know the result. Makes Farmer's muses more of a satisfying experience.
Somerset Rush Their Fences
The first of hopefully many Farmer White summaries of play. I will endeavour to put up Day 1 of any four day story and link into his website so you can get the rest of his labours. Thank you sir.... thankless task yesterday as the batting slumped from 140 for 5 to 171 all out. But I'll let the Farmer open up the vista for you.
A Month Out
Welcome to 2019 people. The Domestic Cricket season starts in about a month. The CC1 is either side of a mass of cricket in blocks and with a World Cup and an Ashes home series there's going to be a lot about. How does it all stand? Well maybe we ought to look at a few things.
Notts - (A Trent Bridge) too far CC1 Sept 2018
An update for the CC1 games as we frontpage them with the Framer White reports. I'll offer the first day report and leave it to you to either read the rest ont he thread attached or follow the link to the Farmer web site to follow on from there.
The Changing World
We have one season before the cricket world in the UK alters. Next year we will have an Ashes tour AND the World Cup in the British Isles and the mayhem to come related to that and THEN we have the new world of the 'Hundred' in 2020 which no one seems able to give concrete information on. Meanwhile the country is looking to leave the European Union in March of 2019 with no real infomration about how that affects 'kolpak' rulings (I doubt the government has much time to discuss cricket aspects) or the roles of 'Commonwealth' players. So the whole thing is in a state of flux.......
It has been a while
It has been a while since I did a frontpage. It has been a while since we got to the T20 Finals. It has been a while since we looked this good in a Championship run. Let's have a chat shall we?
The first two days of the Worcestershire game have been full of fun and discussion. Farmer has produced a full description of the first day so I will put take it and split the game in two for our mobile users under his report. Thank you Farmer
BLAST! It's Gloucestershire
As Farmer is doing the reports I thought we might record the event by making them the frontpage of the thread, but only after the games because it makes the mobile site go weak at the knees if they are there at the start, Anyway, 'Farmer' takes a while to marshall his resources. Hope you think the end is worth the wait - usually is. Thank you sir for the effort and the word picture you create.
The Blast! Are we really still going for this 100 thing?
The Blast starts on Friday for Somerset and 'blasts' through the season briefly leaving a smell of cordite. With it there is a slight smell of BS from the ECB as they still seem set on their plan to compete with their own product in 2 years time by introducing the '100'. A sort of hybrid version of what they already have, which no-one else plays or seems to have any intention in playing, geared to introduce the 'game' to a new urban audience who seem to have been living in a cricketless bubble up until now in those urban centres where no cricket is played by the young - allegedly. It's a strange world we live in.
