'The Hundred' preliminary picks

https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/cricket/49921009

Quote
England all-rounder Ben Stokes was selected instead of Test captain Joe Root for the Leeds-based Northern Superchargers in The Hundred.

Root will play for the Nottingham-based Trent Rockets, while England fast bowler Jofra Archer will represent Southampton-based Southern Brave.

The eight new teams for next year had the chance to draft England's male red-ball contracted players on Thursday.

Seam bowlers James Anderson and Stuart Broad were not chosen.

So who is going to watch this then? Thereís a lot of negative publicity from county members etc and Iím concerned about the potential changes to the schedule that this will cause and this will become clear in November when the fixtures for next season are released.

However whether we like it or want it is irrelevant. Itís happening so I will take the opportunity to watch the best players in the world in a UK competition, some of whom will play in the Birmingham team.

The idea is apparently to get a new generation of kids interested by playing games during school holidays and and showing it on terrestrial TV. If that works then I suppose it can be justified but I am not convinced.

I really don't follow that line of reasoning that seemingly ends with getting kids interested in the game as a whole. Is it a belief that primary school aged kids are only interested in things being hit really hard and far, nothing else?

More that they donít play it at most schools and TV coverage is all on pay TV so this is, so the theory goes, a way of showcasing the game to an untapped audience in the hope that more will want to start playing.

I agree, if it's just about introducing kids to cricket via telly the same effect could be achieved by doing a deal with a terrestrial TV station to show England Test matches. Clearly it wouldn't bag the ECB as much money as hopping into bed with Sky, but how much are they now spending on inventing, marketing and staging yet another new format? It's completely unnecessary and even if it's a roaring success with audiences it's not going to help England produce any more Test cricketers. Maybe they really don't care about that.

Test matches are played to a large extent during school term time and will largely only appeal to the already converted due to it taking 5 days.

This is hoped to be the entry level drug for those new to the experience which might get more people playing and watching and then hooked on Class A Test Cricket as they get older.

As I said I am not altogether convinced it will work but if it does then thatís the justification.

It's been going long enough now to see; does anyone on here know of anybody that now likes First Class cricket as a result of watching T20 over the last 16 years? I don't, but must admit that I'm aware of a few who think T20's "alright", but Test cricket is "boring".

This is what I don't understand. Introduce a new competition perhaps, but a whole new format? It just smacks of a big marketing gimmick. Is Sky really offering so much money for live England cricket that it's cheaper for the ECB to invent a whole new game than just go with a lesser deal from a terrestrial broadcaster? Presumably so. Which is bonkers.

And while I get the idea of these shorter formats being a gateway to the long game, I haven't seen much evidence that it works. Anyway, like many people I got hooked on cricket watching County Championship matches featuring people like Norman Gifford, so I don't buy this idea that kids need sport to be glamorous. Any live sport seen close up can be enough to ignite a spark of interest.

FAO Pears (I now get emails from your lot seeing as I bought a ticket when it pissed down this "Summer"):

Worcestershire County Cricket Club can confirm that Matt Rawnsley has stepped down as Chief Executive and will be leaving the club with immediate effect.

The Board would like to thank Matt for all his hard work at WCCC in the last 20 months and wish him every success in the future.

In the interim, all matters will be handled by the Board, and should be directed to Fanos Hira, WCCC Chairman.

All cricket matters will continue to be handled by the Cricket Steering Group which is Chaired by Paul Pridgeon, WCCC Vice-Chairman.

Further comments will be made in due course.

'Easily' that's some statement to make. OK at the end of next season he will complete 10 years absolutely brilliant seasons. A great servant to Warwickshire cricket.
For me though the greatest overseas player, who came to us as a very naive, humble lad and turned into one of the most ferocious fast bowlers ever to grace a
cricket ground let alone Edgbaston...our own 'White Lightning'..Allan Donald...completed 13 years service and gave us everything.
Not that Jeetan hasn't.

Whilst he doesn't have the same length of service you have to consider Lara as well. We had probably the best player in the world at the time, in his prime, and he put in some truly spectacular performances.

The 8-43 at Headingly is one of most stand out bowling performances in the history of Test cricket and like others have said it is often treated as a side issue to Botham's effort. That's neither fair nor correct. Due to lack of runs to play with that day he had to be absolutely perfect that day and he was.
As a commentator/pundit he was candid with his input often critical but never destructive. He did not sit on the fence like many ex-pro pundits do always favouring and finding excuses for their "mates".

Suspect the whole season will be cancelled, though wouldn't be surprised if they quickly assemble some contest in Dubai, or somewhere similarly unaffected by bad weather, if the virus dies down during our winter.

I wonder what Jeetan Patel will decide to do if there's no cricket this year? This was supposed to be his last season with the Bears. I hope he decides to play next year if the club offers him a new 1 year contract. A great servant over so many years.

A good read during this lockdown is The Greatest Season by Pat Murphy. Recalling in depth that amazing season in 1994. Brian Lara scoring 501 at Edgbaston, 3 out of 4 trophies including the County Championship; we were only denied the 4th trophy basically on the toss in the Nat West Trophy Final at Lord's.
What a year it was in 1994 - Villa beating Man Utd 3-1 in the League Cup Final at Wembley, then 3 trophies for the Bears! I feel fortunate to have witnessed it all. Anyone old enough to have seen that season?

Yep, it was my final year at Birmingham University.  Saw Brian Lara get his 501, and a lot of the Warwickshire season.  A mate of mine had had a tenner on Warwickshire to win all 4 trophies at the start of the season, think it was something like 8,000 to 1.  Cruelly denied by losing a really important toss in the Natwest.

Correct, Warwickshire had to bat twice at 10.30am due to rain around lunchtime on the Saturday which ended the play for the day. The Sunday was stacked against the Bears. I seem to remember Worcestershire came back from an almost certain defeat in the Sunday League to pinch the game at the death? Still, the Bears prevailed on the last day in Bristol to beat Gloucestershire and win the title! Fortunately I was there! Although we had a severe wobble at the start of our modest run chase losing 3 quick wickets!

Yeah, I can't remember if there was any play but I used to go with my Grandad and I got a call about 8:30 that morning to tell me the weather wasn't going to be good so we'd give it a miss. I remember it well because he called me on the Monday morning as I was getting ready for school to say he was going for the last day instead and I could head over for the last hour or 2 if I liked but I didn't take him up on it. Only went once more as well (day 1 against essex, with an almost inevitable great knock from Lara, the only time we saw him live together) because he got really ill that summer and died in the Autumn, I have more regrets over not watching more cricket with him than I do of missing the greatest inning of all time (as he made sure to call it every time I spoke to him about cricket for the rest of his life).

We had a good choice for overseas, with Proctor coming out ahead of 'Z' and Courtney. Nothing wrong with choosing any of those three

For the English players, I thought that the final was nailed on to be between WG and Wally Hammond.

As it happened, Jack Russell defeated Mark Alleyne in the final. Both were great players but nowhere near the class of WG or Wally

Great player, he was a very important part of the England team for a while and never really got the credit he deserved for being the workhorse that the rest of the attack bowled around. I'm pretty sure that if I dug through the old international cricket threads there'd be a fair few times where I argued with people who were calling for him to be replaced with someone who took more wickets, it was pretty common for a couple of series.

He fit into England's then set up very well.  Kept it to 3 an over, decent strike rate (64), and more than useful bat.  Surgery fucked him though at international level.  In his first 14 Tests he took 55 wickets, in his last 9 he took 17 and his economy rate was higher than before.

English cricket's 18 counties have passed a majority vote to play both red ball and white ball cricket when the delayed 2020 season starts on 1 August.

After three and a half months lost following the coronavirus pandemic, several dissenting counties had hoped to play white-ball cricket only, as it is more financially beneficial.

But the majority also wanted first-class cricket to appease members.

I think Jeets is acting as England's spin coach for the Pakistan series.  Brookes wasn't in the squad for this match, he may have picked up an injury when he was with the ODI Training Group but I suspect he's being rested.

The Bears have let this slip so badly that realistically we're looking at a Northants declaration at some point.  Considering Stone is off the field, we haven't seen much of OHD or Bres this morning and consequently runs have been easy to come by.  The back up bowlers have looked unthreatening, especially Sidebottom who has gone for 109 off 21 wicketless overs.

Stone has a side injury, not serious according to the official site. Just a precaution. Nonetheless a worry with the lack of wickets since yesterday evening. I thought Jeets was playing this season? We're going to struggle without him. Where is Norwell? Another who missed most of last season through injury.

Kent have had their highest ever partnership in the current game against Sussex, an unbeaten 423 between Leaning and Cox for the second wicket 

They'd have probably scored plenty more but, under current laws, the innings had to close after 120 overs

I've been watching the Bears game.  The coverage at Glos is better than at Edgabaston because they have replays and multiple camera angles.  Bears have bowled pretty well and have been diddled by a couple of umpiring decisions.

We had one horror over right at the start but since then it's been steady progress.  The run rate isn't a problem (c. 4 rpo to win), it's the wickets.  Pitch is doing nothing, the outfield's quick.

Patel isnít with England. He wanted the role & they wanted him but his visa only allows him to play and not coach.

He was only ever going to play white ball cricket this year and the bowlers have done ok. The problem is with the batting.

Woakes was never going to play and Stone can't be relied on to stay fit so I'm sure that was factored in.  But it's not so much the unavailability as it is that the players coming in to replace them aren't performing.  Bresnan and OHD have taken 27 wickets between them; the other bowlers put together have taken 18 (including 4 by Stone, who only played one match).

But mainly it's the batting that's letting us down.  We've had 1 ton and 2 50s.  Apart from Bresnan, everyone averages under 29.  Bell averages 8.6 and Hain 4.4.

I think Warwickshire are in a bit of a transitional phase, although it does seem to be lasting a while. They have struggled pretty badly with injuries, and recent recruitment has been mixed.

Stone, Rhodes and Sibley have been positives, Burgess, Norwell Hose and Miles havenít really set the world alight. It is a shame they missed out on Bess, and Overton would also have improved the side.

Had had contact with other players in the 48 hours before he developed symptoms

This also means that Jeremy Lloydsí 40 year career in cricket (15 as a player and 25 as an umpire) has come to a premature end.

Players had given him a guard of honour as he walked onto the field at start of play.

Very best of luck to Colwall Cricket Club V's Redbourn CC this weekend in the village knockout final at Lords, it's the club I play for (not the 1st team) and due to Covid spectators aren't allowed to attend. A 30k capacity and we would take probably 200 supports which would be easy to keep a safe distance...

How did the Bears lose that T20 game to Northants? They were 71/6 chasing 192 at virtually halfway to win and did it with big scores from their 8 and 9 batsmen! Terrific 119 knock from Adam Hose all for nothing. Northants are our bogey team.

Has Woakes played at all this season for the Bears? Root, Bairstow etc., have played for their Counties in the T20. He could've made all the difference against Northants. I don't get it.

Agreed, I think that it's probably down to England having control over when players turn out for their counties. They'll be far more relaxed about batters doing so, than bowlers.

I don't think that Mark Wood has played any domestic cricket either.

From the others, Jimmy and Broad don't play white ball and Jofra/Sam Curran are in the IPL.

I don't think that England can stop players going to the IPL, but they can control domestic appearances.

I agree to a point but the next England international is months away, why prevent Woakes from playing in one match where he would have bowled a maximum of 24 balls? I could understand it if there was a tour starting in a few weeks but thereís not. So why didnít he play?

There were clear problems this summer but I also think there's enough promise in the younger players that it won't take a huge effort to get things on a better track for next year. Part of the problem is that the 2 best bowlers were missing all summer, it's great that England are interested but it didn't help the bears in a shortened season and an extended international schedule which ran through it almost completely.

He most definetly is one of us. Remember when the Luke 3rd kit was released i was wearing it the day i travelled over to Grace Rd for county game and a very young
Dan was fielding for us as 12th man. I gathered with a load of other 'old' bears fans at lunch for a pint and none of us knew who he was.
At lunch he was making his way back to dressing room after eating...none of the others dared ask who he was so it was a case of
'Oii mate....who r u'
He answered obviously but all he wanted to talk about was the new shirt.....a lovely young lad. I certainly will take great interest in following his career.
If he's half the player Belly was then we have a good un!!!

Bears are playing a 2 day friendly agianst Notts split as 60 overs with the ball and 30 with the bat today and reversed tomorrow. It's currently in the 56th over and Bears have bowled brilliantly to have them at 128/10

I like Cricinfo but their coverage of live county cricket is poor. Their daily reports are better and the ball by ball coverage of tests is great. The BBC sport app is better, I get wicket alerts on my phone for the Bears. I presume they have an advantage of staff at the ground purely for BBC stuff whereas Cricinfo use someone like George Dobell who works for several outlets and no doubt has to update them all. A great cricket journalist though.

Heís got his visa and should be available from 6th May. Vihari will play until then although they havenít ruled out keeping both of them on, you can have two overseas players in the championship this year, they donít want to block the development of young players like Mousley and Yates.

Bears bowling hasn't been consistent enough so far, getting 1-2 decent deliveries per over but also giving them easy ones to score from. I think I'd give Briggs and Rhodes a few overs soon.

Bears have got on to 201/8 but with Sibley unlikely to bat there's only 1 wicket left in the bag.

That leads to me no really understanding why there isn't an option to replace a player in a situation like this. If he has, as seems likely, broken a finger not being able to replace him in the batting line up is a huge disadvantage and encourages people to bat when it's not suitable or safe for them to do so in an effort to save the game.

Post by: Villafirst on April 17, 2021, 07:25:10 AM
A batting calamity for the Bears. With Malan not joining for a few weeks and now Sibley out it's a poor start to the season. Once again, the bowlers got early wickets as they did against Derbyshire, but lost any advantage by leaking too many runs to lower order batsmen. Why are Mousley and Brookes not playing?

Losing Sibley has been key to this match, with the full batting line-up I think we'd have had this in the bag, as it stands I cna see it going right to the wire.

I wonder if they're now starting to think about him coming in for a while though, Briggs isn't terrible with the bat but OHD is a proper 11 so could Sibley potentially come in at 10 or even 11 if the target is pretty low?

96 right now, I think if this pair can nudge it down to around 50-60 the conversation will get interesting in the dressing room.

Looking forward to todays game at Edgbaston to Essex, maybe one of the last opportunities to get to watch Alastair Cook 'in the flesh' so to speak.
Been a wonderful player....so really hope he is playing for them...see no reason why he shouldn't.

Its a shame they got that high, when the 5th went it really looked like we could get them all out today with a target of 150-160. That said the pitch does seem to be getting easier as the day goes on so get the last wicket early and dig in until after lunch as best we can and it'll be an interesting end to the game.

They finish at 88-0 but despite them looking in a very strong position we might get away with it, weather looks rough for tomorrow can see the whole day being lost, only showers and light rain but looks pretty consistent from the early hours until about 6 and then the current predictions are talking about similar showers from early Sunday afternoon right through to late evening.

I really hope that the decision not to make them follow on doesn't come back to haunt us.
Derby's batting line up is quite brittle and
Derby could have been on a similar score with game then virtually over. Bears are certainly in prime position but we haven't
quite batted Derby out of the game yet with still 2 days of the game left. Hopefully we can get a lead over 300 which will
give us a physcholigical bonus.

How many times did the ball beat the bat today. I don't think Derby will get 150

I see Chris Woakes is missing yet again? Will he ever play any red ball cricket for the Bears again? Typical Olly Stone is omitted from the England starting eleven against NZ and not allowed to play for the Bears either.

You asked the same question yesterday.

Tomorrows another day.
Bears obviously massive favourites. The way the ball moving still feel wrong decision not to enforce follow on. Derby are fragile and winless, today
was the third occasion whereby they could have followed on.

I know we bang on about this subject but is Chris Woakes not allowed to play for anyone at present !? Is he injured ? Is he still alive even !? No doubt Bairstow will be in the Yorkshire team later !

Squad for today's game: Will Rhodes (C), Carlos Brathwaite, Tim Bresnan, Danny Briggs, Ethan Brookes, Michael Burgess, Sam Hain, Olly Hannon-Dalby, Adam Hose, Jake Lintott, Craig Miles, Dan Mousley, Ed Pollock

While on the subject of missing men, what's happened to Henry Brookes?

I think Woakes played in a warm-up game against Northants earlier this week.

The Bears have set a challenging target against Notts, 229-5 off 20 overs. Brathwaite took 32 of Trego in the 19th, clinical hitting.

It's the third highest score in their history, so I'd hope it's a bit more than challenging.
