A gimmick for a gimmick may not be such a bad idea.

A guy I work with is a Surrey fan and he thinks it's a waste of time completely. I couldn't help but point out to him though that BC Lara at 40 and 3 years retired would probably score more runs than anyone bar Ramprakash even in the championship.

Lara or Spriegel might be the easiest decision in cricket ever.

It's an interesting question but I suspect you're right about Lara, whose fitness probably isn't all that anymore but can probably still bat. Of course, batsmen do lose their eye eventually but it's not the worst gamble, as long as they don't end up spunking away vast amounts of cash.

Not sure how Surrey are in a position to play a "weaker" team even against Bangladesh. I hadn't actually noticed this match was on tbh, and it's now the second day. But I was interested to see that Schofield is captaining.

All very interesting, but I can't work out who sponsors their academy.

Hes fairly clear about the sort of overseas player hes looking for; its finding a decent one who is available for most of the season that will be the problem. The last two attempts have been the disappointing signing of Rangana Herath towards the end of the 2009 season and the abortive recruitment of Piyush Chawla at the start of 2010. Otherwise Chris Schofield will just have to step up a bit!

Chawla would probably get them promoted on his own. I still can't see why India didn't let him play, other than out of spite.

Not really sure what the point of players starting training in November is. This is one of those things that has become "trendy".

I can fully appreciate if a player wants to work on an aspect of his game at any time of the year, including now. But does starting training in November actually have any real benefits?

Tend to agree with paulsre about the early training. Not sure if there is a connection but Surrey had two players who missed the entire season this year through wear and tear injuries.

Last season Surrey players had to go through a series of gimmicky team building sessions too which were probably in part to try to alleviate the tedium of returning to training so early. Several players can't attend anyway due to other cricketing commitments.

On the other subject Surrey badly need to get the choice of overseas player correct as their squad is looking too thin to cope if Davies and Tremlett miss many games through England commitments.

Ramps to miss the start of next season with knee injury:

KP signs a season long deal at Surrey. No excuses for him not to play a few games for them. However after the Ashes and World Cup I expect he will want some downtime.

And from the Surrey website:

http://www.britoval.com/news/kevin-p...n-signs-surrey

For me it's a no-brainer and I was amazed it didn't look like it would happen until now. His appearance in a Wednesday day/night Pro 40 match against Worcs near the end of last season resulted in a crowd twice the size as for the similar fixture at the same time last year. He's not likely to play much, but most of the cost of having him will be covered by his central contract, and when he does play it's going to pull a lot of extra punters through the gate. I believe MCC funded Middx's signing of Gilchrist last year (and would also have funded Tendulkar had he been made available) for similar reasons.

I was hoping that Ramps' injury would allow more opportunities for some of our young batsmen to come through and develop in the first team (which we desperately need - if Ramps was to retire tomorrow we'd be screwed in the batting department). So that's a shame.

Or maybe he could take Gareth Batty's spinning spot instead. We might lose something in the batting department, but we'd have someone who can turn the ball...

I imagine he will squeeze in the IPL too.

I don't have a problem with his signing but it is very much a commercially driven decision of course.
