well now then...................

its a lot cooler this morning which is good after the most 'meltiest' day yesterday, and a couple of very uncomfortable nights too.

How very British, complain when its cold, complain when its hot!!!!
I have to say that I do prefer to be lying next to the sea or a pool if it is hot!

Right on to cricket things as I am pushed for time this morning,

Great news that 'HWMNBMITB'  has said  that he will not play in England again, after his stint for Surrey in the T20 blast.
he is going to continue as a 'T20 specialist' ( not my words!) and is also going to be spending more time on his conservation work!

He feels that the has paved the way for young English players in the IPL and is proud of that.
Ah well you just knew that he would have to big himself up somehow.

I hope that he enjoys his last summer playing here in the UK.

Now to my boys,

Middlesex were batting and double centuries by the struggling 'trophy keeper warmers' thwarted my boys. Middlesex were  337-4 at stumps
HRR took a wicket which made my day.

today they need to go out with determination, they can beat these southern softies and to be honest they need to, having been beaten by them twice last season.

'James' was keeping me in touch with all that was going on before he headed back to the hotel to prepare for a 'secret' mission last night ( not really so secret as I saw the pictures ).

So today I expect nothing less than grit and determination and the rest of the wickets tumbling early!

I tell you Notts are on a flipping massive roll,

Samit Patel!!

What a lad he is, 157* ,taking Notts to 345-4 at stumps.

Just brilliant!

right I am off.

Have a great day,
