I trust all will agree that this match deserved a thread of its own.

A bit feeble of me, I know, but I've tried five sites and have yet to find one that specifies the date of the match.

Right, how do we get to watch it live? Hire a hot-air balloon or blimp for five days and keep it tethered with a good view point? Any takers?

Failing that, I'll watch the livestream though I find it very stressful!

What would the great Bob Willis have made of his trophy final not been shown on tv? Imagine his demeanour as at Headingley 1981, eyes glazed with massive intensity bowling fearsomely at the tv producers

I think I find it more stressful watching on TV/livestream than live, when you actually have a 'feel' for the game. I even found the RLODC final last year quite stressful on TV, even though it was very much a done deal for a lot of the game.

My favourite live game - or one of my favourites - was Sussex vs Somerset in the 83 Nat West Trophy. All over early in the afternoon giving me time for a dip in the sea. Result!

Exactly one of the main reasons I detest watching any sport on TV, I'd 100% rather be at the game than watching on TV
Sky have confirmed that they are covering IPL / Womens cricket on the same day.
In addition SKY have said that due to two stands being knocked down at Lords there is insufficient space to install the required cameras, so unless BBC take it on the red button we are going to be struggling for coverage

Why have the final at Lords in the first place if it’s a building site. Be much better to have it at the ground of the highest place team i.e. Taunton!

But we'd probably be given a points deduction and lose before the start of the game! Not that I'm at all cynical, you understand...

The E C B aren't the only ones who 'have it in' for Somerset, because some posters consider that the whole World is a massive conspiracy against Somerset County Cricket Club.

Glad that I don't think that way.

Bess to open the batting, Mart!? Why!?

I don’t think the club will have any real choice or options for the final which is why we have to pray nobody is injured in the thrilling T20 comp.

Hildreth is all but sure to be out. Banton’s away. Leach and Bess likely to be at the England training camp.

So team will be

Green
Lammonby
Abell
Bartlett
Byrom
Davies
LG
Cove
VDM (though he should bat 11)
Scotland’s finest
Brooks

There’s nobody else, with any experience at all, who has a red ball contract and who figures to be available.

Who would you name as the best XI of the group stage? Pick a team from all counties, then see the link:

What training camp!?

There is nothing scheduled for the end of September, why would there be? England are not scheduled to play red ball again until January at the earliest.

There was talk of a red ball camp in UAE maybe in December but no sense in an end of September one (which clashs with the IPL)

Jack & Dom will be available for the final.

I would expect the exact same team as Worcs away for the final personally. Hildy for Green if fit but nothing suggests he is likely to be in 10 days time.
