FAKE 2020 CC1 v Surrey

Our next game is against SURREY at home.

They are presently 7th. We do not have Craig Overton or Tom Banton available for this game so we do have to make at least one team change.

Any suggestions before we look at it closely. I'd look to start this game on Sunday morning.

I'd go Davey and Brooks, for Cove and Bess

Think I'd agree with that myself. I'd like to see how the engine uses Brooksie and Josh. Again people who we may have a different 2020 view of in relation to their 2019 profile.

OK I've put up a poll for the bowling combination.

With 2 victories under the belt and no batsman really showing problems (plus Banton not being available and Byrom not being considered at the moment) I am assuming this is the only decision to be taken?

I'll give information about the weather and discuss toss options should Surrey decide to take one on Sunday

I think two spinners have served us well; I'd merely replace Cove with Davey.

That is the way I voted SP.

Keep the balance of 3.5 pace and 2 spinners. Keep the batting, fielding and 'go get 'em' attitude of Bess. Add the control and, more latterly, improved penetration, calm and batting of Davey.

Not that I am taking this remotely seriously.

So the selectors have sort of spoken if I kinda read between the lines.

Brookes will come in for Craig Overton (simply on the fact he did quite well at home at the start of 2019 and is a little pacier than Josh?). Nothing else between them to be honest.

Eddie Byrom will come in at 3 with Azhar moving up to open with Tom A

Dom will keep his place as we have lost the tail batting of Craig.

Everything equal. Gonna be the toss of a coin at the moment.

Can't go with the status quo because it isn't available.

One way to look at it is:

There are 4 votes for 2 spinners and 2 votes for an extra paceman. Therefore go with two spinners.
Then, for the Cove replacement there are 4 votes each for Davey and Brookes, so toss a coin between those two, or
Look at the 2019 averages:
Bowling: Davey 17 wkts at 18, Brookes 25 wkts at 29. Batting. Each averaged 11.

And no, I am not taking this seriously!

Or, look back at who played against Surrey in that game - one spinner.

We need another voter, but happy to go with what you decide Grock

So Sunday morning.

I have a decision to make with theses weather conditions

Spinners? Brooks Davey?

Anyone want to comment in the next hour about who to put In the side at Taunton or are you really going to leave it to me?

Well it looks like good batting conditions!

Re: Poll: FAKE 202 Team selection v Surrey
Posted by: Grockle (IP Logged)
Date: 19 April, 2020 12:33

So if we win a toss we will bat. That one is pretty much a given.

The question is whether cloudy and overcast conditions on Days 3 and 4 suggest a seam heavy attack with Dom sitting it out.

MAJOR PROBLEM!!

Mike Carberry has gone down with a hamstring injury and will be out for 5 weeks!!

We need to re-organise the batting.

I am going to put in a quick poll of options taking into account that Tom Banton is also out.

Does that affect the bowling options? I may put the start back an hour but I have to start the game today.

Is this going to affect the option of replacing Craig Overton (with Brookes it has been decided) and whether we go with a 2 spin option or a seam heavy attack.

This is an 'on the spot' decision. I've elongated parallel universe time to allow the decision to be considered but the match must start today as the software is at a 'can't go back and take longer' stage.

Any comments much appreciated

I have voted for Byrom to open. He impressed me greatly when he had the slot. At Chelmsford in 2018 he played Harmer's bodyline better than anyone, including taking safe runs off it by playing him to long leg from ubder his armpit. He also played a brilliant attacking innings, mainly along the ground, when Somerset embarked on an ill-advised run chase on the last afternoon.

I would stick with two spinners which also keeps Bess's batting. I would have gone with Davey ahead of Brooks but that one can be argued either way.

And no, I am not taking this fantasy cricket seriously,

Farmer

There is another option that I've missed I suppose

That you go for experience first up and bat

Ali, Abell with Bartlett moving up to 3 and Alexei Kervezee coming into his place at number 5

so

ALI, ABELL, BARTLETT, HILDRETH, KERVEZEE, DAVIES
