The 'Hundred' Draft - what might it look like?
Where will the likes of Tom Banton be playing their white ball cricket next year? Will they have to look at the 'Hundred' franchises at the expense of the counties they presently reside in and play for? Will there be some kind of related deal available that allows them to split themselves between the 2 form of short format? Nobody really knows but I got the chance to have a chat with some people who have a little bit of an inkling into what little gems the process might include. This is as much as that tells us presently
Ennui and Oak Trees Yorkshire CC1 Headingley
Brooksie Ferret goes back to God's second County and Farmer White goes with him to see what he can do against his former team mates.
Notts at Taunton CC1
Nottinghamshire, at the foot of the CC1 table arrive at Taunton to play Somerset, at the top of said table. It is set up for an interesting game. Our resident supporter observer gives us the low down on the ups and downs of this contest. Over to you 'Farmer'....
Tremendous Cricket Hampshire CC1 Day 1
Azhar gains his county cap and we are looking for some inspiration from that as 'Farmer White' outlines Day 1 of this crucial CC1 game against one of our main opponents.
Chelmsford - A test of a Match
Jack and the CC1 boys are back in action in Essex against one of our challengers for the ultimate Somerset prize. Chelmsford is the ground and we hope to see our bowlers once more on form and our batsmen in a little better nick as we seriously look at putting the Championship beyond the grasp of our nearset rivals early in the 2019 season. Farmer is there for us and his reports are being produced on a seperate thread to enable the forum thread to run more speedily for the mobile users at the ground. Let me know how it goes.
'The Nearly Men' Lord's Final
Neither Farmer or myself are there. Farmer is at a much more important event and I'm in Hamilton watching this on SKY where we have already been dubbed the 'nearly men' by Mark Butcher within seconds of switching on. It is definitely the media view that we are second favourites today. I'm happy with that view. Hampshire win the toss and will bat.
White Clothing Red Ball Surrey CC1 Taunton
Back to the long stuff at the County Ground after the variable but eventually glorious 50 over competition. Marcus, the two Jacks and Steve return to the crease along and Farmer starts a four day opus on the proceedings.....
Hampshire take us apart at home in front of a full house. We bat for only 80% of our time and Hampshire need only just over 60% of theirs to put this one to bed. Not Somerset's finest hour in 2019 as Farmer White will now recount.
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.
