Potentially even more interesting are these two fixtures commencing Sept 23...

Durham v Glamorgan
Gloucs v Northants.:lol:
There’s a chance of us being on marra!

Essex could be following on at Edgbaston today and if they lose, Somerset may wrap it up next week. So if Sky have a slot in their schedule pencilled in for the final round of games who knows.

Unlikely, but we’ll see.

I can remember us being on Sky away to Leics in the final game of 1999 when we secured the draw to get us into ninth and a place in the new Div 1.

Due to injuries John Morris had to make an appearance and he had put on so much weight that he made Cosgrove look like Twiggy.:eek:

The last game of the season in Division One is Somerset v Essex, if the title is still on the line - this game MUST be televised.
It is Brandon ain’t it? Saw it advertised by Nasser
Jake ball managed to get a 3 year international career based on one sky county game mind

Yeah, confirmed on their website - wasn’t yesterday so must have just made the decision.
 
It seems to change hour by hour, who gets an edge. It looked for all the world yesterday that Somerset would win comfortably while Essex toiled against the weather and Surrey. Now Essex have taken their game by the scruff of the neck and Somerset face a tricky run chase against Hampecbre.

Bugger Brexit as well as Bognor, the County Championship and promotion to it is heading for a superb climax. That and Sunderland is all I'll be concentrating on the next week or so.

Great time for Sibley to get 200 that should be him inked on to tour, shows good bottle doing it when eyes are on you, carried his bat too

Some interesting other knocks

Vince with 2 outrageous knocks in his last 2 games from number 5, I’m pleased he’s gone there. Not trying to be someone he’s not, which is what England need get away from

Still think he’s just about the best batsman around bar the big names. If root n stokes 3 n 4 why couldn’t he bat 5 with Pope 6?

Another man in gun form is Billings, not suggesting a call up but shows how talented he is, it’s no surprise it’s come after a year without t20 shite.

There’s some talent in England like, we need to get people batting in the right positions though
 
Have to agree. Based on form over the season, I thought Somerset would have it wrapped up this week. They can yet turn it around but you wonder if they feel they're destined not to win the title.

According to the commentators on 5 Live Xtra this week, Hampshire have poached Somerset's groundsman and are trying to sign Nathan Lyon for next season.

With Dawson and Crane already there they could go the spin route to try to win the title next season. Yorkshire are also in for Lyon though.

Well, they’ve tried the foreigner route haven’t they. They’re a dispicable County led by an absolute shithouse in Bransgrove. I hope it all comes falling down around their ears.

Just one more thing in Sibley, nobody is listening like but hey I enjoy writing cricket, I watched highlights of his innings, you can't knock him but having watched a summer of Australia's lost, its notable how irrelevant CC runs could be. I'd still pick him, but its all low 80s, very full, loads of balls straying into the pads

There is just no way you could say if he would have scored runs against Hazlewood and Cummins based on that

not his fault that mind
 
Think Somerset are very good at giving youngsters a chance and some very good ones seem to come through on a regular basis.

Tom Banton looks he is going to be some players!
