BuggerÖÖKP commentating  >:(

A complete arse as a commentator. I have a Bluetech album playing instead.

Phoenix look light on the bowling side, though Issy Wong looks like one for the future. As a batter, an on-form Shefali should pound any opposition into the ground.

I like the kit too.

The Hundred. Iím getting used to it (though Iím yet to be convinced that itíll revolutionise world cricket)l the thing Iím struggling to get over is exactly that - the death of the over!

KP is getting worse by the minute.

All he does is repeat what the other commentator has just said and shout

Chris Benjamin looks a good player.

So young and so unaffected by pressure.

Iím enjoying the Hundred but although I was rooting for the Phoenix  (I canít bring myself to support a team with Birmingham in the name, it feels wrong), I donít feel a connection with them like I do with the Bears. Maybe it will come.

The thing that I'm liking about The Hundred so far is the mix of players; a few England stars, some overseas players, some County regulars and some youngsters/Second XI players.

Good to see Benny Howell and Miles Hammond playing

The Hundred is a shortened version of the t20 Blast but jazzed up to fuck with the weird colours.  I don't like it.  I am sure I may be in the minority.

I'm not keen either, Steve. Not that I don't think it's any good, it's still cricket, but nothing that couldn't have been done by revamping the 'Blast', in my view.

I agree Rory.  It really only a 20 ball shorter game than the t20.  What's the point?  Got to be for money and selling around the world.  Do away with T20 if that's the case because there won't be enough time to play 50 over games or T20.  Love cricket but we can do without the Hundred.

Last six Bears wickets gone for eleven runs Another pitiful showing against a Notts team who were far from full strength
