2nd XI

New post – might keep this going over the next few days. At 4pm, Hampshire v Middlesex is looking like another three-day game:

Middlesex 2nd XI: 181 (Fuller 4-57; Barker 2-27 plus one each for Stevenson, Dale & Turner)

Hampshire 2nd XI 35-2: sadly Felix Organ has failed again (18) and his opening partner Prest is also out.

I noted earlier, no sign of Scriven or Currie, thinking the latter might be going to the Oval. There is no Cameron Steel either and I wonder whether he too has gone to London – Joe Weatherley is probably the least secure of the first team at present, with scores of 41, 16, 1 & 8.

2nd XI @ 6.15: 115-4 Middleton gone for 38; Academy’s Toby Albert is 42*.

PS Thank you for alerting us to the appearance of Harry Came for Derbyshire 2nd XI. I’m biased because I know his dad and I know how disappointed they both were that he was discarded so quickly by his home county (not typical I’d suggest). I hope he makes it – it’s a good start as he’s 82* right now.

CLOSE of PLAY: 130-4 – Albert 45* (120 balls); Fuller 17*.

Never mind speculating about team selection Dave, the biggest disappointment is your absence from the commentary team at the Oval.My chum (Paul Rowson) and I believe you and Kevan give better value than a Sky Sports subscription ever can. The live feed has been excellent so far this season, you and Kevan make a wonderful opening partnership, thank you.

You are very kind Paul, thank you – we are having great fun and pleased it’s working. Back next week and I’ll be tweeting Kevan, you can be sure!!

Dave, I also want to thank you and Kevan for the commentary. I can listen much more now that I am working from home than I ever could when working in the office. Really enjoying it! Is there any more news about a Handbook for this season? Thanks!

Thank you Sean – it is really is much appreciated. I did ask and I’m hoping/expecting that the Handbook will be out to coincide with the doors opening for the Leics game in mid-May.
