Ian Bell will miss the start of the season and could be out for 3 months.

Thatís a big blow particularly when you consider that we have no Trotty any more. Out batting is fragile at the best of times.

Looks like the Villa injury curse has transferred to Ian Bell. 3 months out! FFS!

Weather permitting, I'll be at Day 2 of Gloucestershire v Derbyshire on 12th April, courtesy of a Sky VIP freebie

First professional cricket that I've seen in person since the days of 'Zed'

Excellent 128 from Dom Sibley and 88 from Will Rhodes for the MCC against Surrey including Morne Morkel. These two are carrying on from the end of last season. They could force their way into the Test team, which is not good for the Bears, especially with Bell missing until June and Trott now retired.

So you score 400+ off 50 overs against Worcestershire and still lose. Short boundaries aside, does anyone know anything about a bowler called Leverock who went for 101 off just 6 overs? One for the future perhaps?  :)

Related, Dwayne was the catcher and Kamau is his nephew with expensive bowling figures.

Just seen that Sam Hain scored a double hundred (205) in the final 50 over warm up match of pre season.  Just wonder if this is going to be the season where he really kicks on.

his white ball game has been solid for a while, he averaged 106 in the 1 day cup last year. He's decent in the t20 in the root style 'nurdler' role as well and averaged 33 which is decent for that job with a couple of big hitters around him.

It's red ball where he needs to kick on, after 4 centuries in his debut season he's only got another 4 in the following 3, he really needs to address that.
