Buttler finally comes good and shows the world what he can do :fanfare

Possibly putting himself in the frame for the IPL.

    Andre Adams to Andy Bichel. Another crap ball.

    Getting more on Pietersen by the hour. All I'll say is, England's rise to number one was achieved by meticulous planning, and their fall, and looking swift, is by seeing things as they come.

    By the way, dancing, I'm growing more angry at Hants. They're great when they need to be rubbish, Finals Day, and now crap when they need to be good.

    Worcester are just abject.

     :o  how very dare you sir!  Chance of promotion already gone out the window, so result in the game against Derbyshire is fairly immaterial (from a Hampshire perspective).  We'll be in division 2 again next year unfortunately.  And on no account did they need to be rubbish on Finals Day (or this Saturday!), clearly we just rock at limited overs cricket  ;)

    Just throw them out the window with their chances. Carberry taking a wicket with his second ball after a few hours of nothing and Balcombe batting more than bowling. Just flip the order and Hants might even challenge Glamorgan. They'd still get Root for a duck, mind.

    There wouldn't be this tournament without the IPL. It's really a joke tournament.

    Iain O'Brien

    Tim Ambrose

    Darren Cousins

    Each are good reading. Cousins' piece though is also a troublesome one.

    Great day out at Lord's, last 5 overs or so were incredibly tense.  Momentum swinging one way then the other.  Thought we had it when Bell got himself out, then Woakes hit Wood's last over for 13, but Blackwell (who is fricking enormous!) played a stupid slog when all he had to do was get a single and put Woakes on strike and got bowled.  And then Carter hit that 4 off the penultimate ball!  Oh man it was good!

    As a side show, the potential England opener face off: Carberry looked out of this world but was a rather tame dismissal; Adams - less pyrotechnics, but played an outstanding captain's innings; Chopra - ok but wasn't overly impressed by him.

    Yeah, well done your lot. a final fitting the setting for the first time in many years. Was in fact watching the 93 final between Warwickshire Sussex yesterday. Good stuff.

    sh*t for Carter, to retire falling a run short.

    It's slowly but  surely slipping out of reach as I type, but Afghanistan putting up a more than respectable showing against India.

    Edit: and they've just lost another wicket...  :police:

    Great cricket I must admit, not the quality necessarily, but in terms of the fight which Afghanistan have put up today.

    Bodes well for the tournament and the matches to come.

    sh*t against spin. Couldn't face Allan Mullally if he dobbed it at 45 mph.

    Don't really GAF about this tournament, really finding it hard to wet myself in excitement. Still watching it as 8 o news is even more depressing than watching India play cricket atm.

    Afghanistan are one of the few draws really. Dipped their fingers in butter before the match though.

    Spoke to soon  ;)

    Though tbh a great batting perfomance by Wright accentuated their faults.
    Comparing the two matches though it seems like India have a long way to improve if they want to beat even a KPless England. I would even go all out and be controversial saying that England are the favourites for the match, merely because our batting is looking very promising.

    Concerning the England test squad,   Compton and Root included is good,  the lack of Briggs is really dumb. 
    still hopefully will get himself a game before too long.

    Very excited at the inclusion of those two players, imho the future of the English test team depends on players like them and tbh specifically them performing in the test team.

    I'd agree regarding Briggs - hugely talented youngster, and is undoubtedly the 'future' as far as our spin bowling is concerned.  However, he has played very little first class cricket this year, which I guess has counted against him.  The balance of Hampshire's side has meant that Dawson has played ahead of  him.  Hope he gets a chance to show what he can do in the T20

    How on earth does a player as sh*t as Liam Dawson play so many matches? And how grouse are the English women eh, been winning basically everything in 2020s for an era.

    In real cricket, Rahane got run out for the first time in FC cricket (54 matches) and Murali VIjay scored the highest individual score in the Irani cup (Ranji champions against the Rest of India), 266. Rajasthan are being fliped in the arse.

    No excuse, the batting was just awful, truly cringeworthy. Even with KP this team would not have a chance.

    And amazing how your perception of a team can change so much from one game to another  :D

    The whole performance, particularly the bowling, was crapulent. What Dernbach is doing anywhere near the English squad is a mystery. He's sh*te beyond sh*te. Then there's Bressy lad who can't bowl in OD cricket for since god knows how long.

    170 was always too high.

    Dernbach did ok against South Africa, but when he comes on at the end, you just set your self for the slower ball and then any reasonable batsman will put you out the ground.  Bresnan was hopeless - 2 spinners at least is a must imho.  I get the horrid feeling that Briggs isn't going to get a game all tournament, and that upsets me  :(  Broad said this afterwards:

    He's like what Bravo was when he learnt to bowl the slow ball. Doesn't know when to stop. And the number of wides he bowls. Now I won't be able to read tomorrow's papers.

    It was clear that England would lose when Swann bowled four overs for 17.
