No prizes! Enter as many times as you like! Closest selection wins!

I'll go for something a bit different, Davies to open with Abell lower down, the wicket taking seamers and spin twins

Davies
Azhar
Hildreth
Banton
Abell
Bartlett
Gregory
Bess
Cove
Leach
Brooks

Team we’ll probably get:

Unchanged from last match, both in personnel and batting order.

Which was:

Azhar
Abell
Hildreth
Banton
Bartlett
Davies
Gregory
Cove
Jove
Leach
Brooks

Is Byrom and Abell our best opening pair? Would Byrom make more runs than Azhar there?

Apart from a 313 against Kent, CC1 scores at Chelmsford have been on the low side this season, every run could be at a premium

They should all play in the seconds game this week - Eddie, Azhar and Tres. See who can find some form.

Leachy and Dom could probably both use the outing too - to keep a bit of momentum going in the latter case and due to a lack of bowling in Leachy’s case.

But only Eddie and Marcus are playing, meaning Azhar will just be carrying forward the same lack of form into the next game.

Josh Davey has taken a wicket at Southgate if that helps the 1st xi selection

Feed is rather good - can see the entire slip cordon (of which we currently have four).

On the basis that Cove needs some recovery time, and that Byrom has proven to have stickability in the past, plus Abell can be the third seamer, and assuming it is a turning track as it was v Hants:
Byrom
Azhar
Abell
Hildreth
Banton
Bartlett
Davies
LG
Dom
Jove
Leach

If they prepare a flat track at Chelmsford (doesn't it always turn after a couple of days there though?) then I would puts Brooks in for Dom:
Byrom
Azhar
Abell
Hildreth
Banton
Bartlett
Davies
LG
Jove
Leach
Brooks

I don't envy the selectors for this one - I hope they can get a good look at the pitch and the one just used v Hants before they have to choose

Edit … and then there's Josh who has been bowling really well too, what a dilemma

Same line up as Angell Face's (except Banton in place of Byrom). If it is an absolute turner, then he can offer a 3rd spin option.

You’d drop Banton, AF?

Seconds all over Middx. Wonder what grumpy Gus will have to say re:pitch?

Tom L first change and early wkt.

It is to be hoped that there may be considerable scope, in future, to have both Leachy and Bess in our team, with 3 main seamers and the two Toms serving as seamer 4a and 4b, respectively. You’d have LG, twins and spin twins as 7-11, and both Toms in the top 6.

Devil of a selection.
I want Byrom opening - but who opens with him, and whom do you drop?
I want two spinners, but who drops out for Dom?
With deep reluctance, and apologies to those omitted:
Byrom
Azhar
Bartlett
Hildreth
*Abell
+Banton/Davies (sorry, this one is beyond me)
Gregory
Bess
Overton
Overton
Leach

We're actually in the position of national selectors, who have candidates galore and have to decide who of a dozen might best fill the last two or three places.

1) Azhar
2) Banton
3) Davies
4) Hildreth
5) Abell
6) Bartlett
7) Gregory
8) Bess (or Jove if strip isn’t overly spin friendly)
9) Cove
10) Leach
11) Brooks

Davies and Bartlett interchangeable at 3 & 6.

Azhar

George
Steve
Lewis
Craig
Jamie
Jack

I agree with the idea it's correct to blood our younger batters at 4 & 5 to help them bed in.

We have 4 matches in 24 days so i really am not against rotating any of the bowling attack.
It should not be viewed as dropped but rested.
We need everyone fit for this busy period.

I'm sure Lewis or Craig will not want to be left out but maybe in the 2 home games rest 1 from each.
Both along with Jamie in expect to be ahead of Josh Tim Brooks when it comes to T20s too so a lot of cricket in the next 9/10 weeks befor the HUGE final run in.

I think Meeks played the T20s last year, so may factor in. And J Taylor sure to factor in.

But I agree LG and Cove candidates to be rested for one home CC match apiece.

The Abell, Azhar, Hildy combo only made 3 in the first innings against Kent. Davies made 41 and 30 opening at Chelmsford last year. In fact the Byrom, Davies, Bartlett, Hildreth, Abell order did rather well. I think we might be regressing with Abell as opener and not playing Azhar would make for an expensive drinks carrier

Meeks didnt play any T20 last year.
He was chief cheerleader in the Somerset stand.....

Davey played just 1 T20 as did Craig and none for Timmy G. The latter 2 largely due to injury.

Lewis & Jerome along with Babar the 1st 3 names on the teamsheet being skipper & overseas buy ins.
Jamie was our standout wicket taker last year so with Max & RVDM too we shall have lots of competition for bowling spots.....
