Whatever the feelings might be on his age that's a might assured debut for someone of such limited experience, yes conditions were pretty helpful to say the least but he comfortably outbowled mendis. He's been talked about around the Derbyshire league's the last few years, let's hope this is the start of a promising career.

Shame the season isn't all day night cricket, it's clearly our thing.

I think a draw looks certain, Notts running out of time.

Pretty shitty week given Ball's injury and Broad too.

Cue the Great Escape theme for Kent vs Notts?

What a game at Wantage Road! Leicestershire fall agonisingly short when it appeared they had the upper hand chasing 394.

Afghan born. Kandahar by the looks of things. I wonder whether he'll play for the Afghans or not.

Notts can't really complain, the weather saved them against Derbyshire. Kent can count themselves lucky. Wonder how Notts will bowl teams out later in the summer if Pattinson doesn't return?

Kent certainly got a good look at what Div 1 would look like, since Notts are clearly a notch above most of the rest of Div 2. Pattinson is really class with Ball, Fletcher, Gurney and Mullaney providing high quality support. Notts only real weakness would be spin.

Perhaps they should give one of the young quicks a go? Kitt?

Wood and Hutton will be strike bowlers (which is not their game), more like bowling all rounders that chip in but would not knock teams over.

However, to be fair Fletch has been excellent in CC this year, for me Gurney is over rated and has lost pace (used to consistently be in the high 80s but now rarely gets above 83-84 mph), which may well be due to the fact that he play all formats. I think 50 overs is his weakest format, which could also be said for Fletch. We won the cup largely due to the powerful batting and the ability to tie teams down in the middle overs. Our first 10 and death bowling has been very average at best.

The 'chief execs' must be choking on their vol-au-vents at Cheltenham, with the groundsman hiding in the tool shed.

Something of a contrast to the game at Beckenham.

Now Glamorgan will bat for the second time today, with still about an hour's worth of play. Can't remember the last time this happened on an opening day.

Kent have really given The Northants attack a right old mauling today. Denly & Dickson have put on 305 in 58 overs.

There might have been one at one of Lancs' outgrounds in their recent Championship winning season? The last occasion I can recall off the top of my head was 29 years ago - the year of the wide seamed ball - when Middx went in twice at Tunbridge Wells. I turned up 15 minutes late and had already missed three dismissals.

Taking full advantage of the absence of Kleinveldt, who caused a fair amount of damage during the same fixture at the same ground last season.

The D boys are 61 runs short of Hinks and Taylor's second wicket county record, set in 1990. Their pursuit of that mark is something for me to savour as I start my attendance at this match tomorrow. Even more mouth watering is the thought of Yasir having heaps of runs - and time - to play with.

Did it happen down at Taunton last season?

Must be a beaut up the road although I reckon Kent's spinners might fancy their chances later in the game.

You should definitely get two good days, but might see some showers on Thursday.

Do they still have pitch inspectors? Somebody said they had changed the system.

Derbyshire playing no less than three spinners at Chesterfield. Interesting to see Critchley resurface batting at 5, only question now is where on earth are we hiding Harvey Hosein and why is a pretty average kolpak getting the gloves over him?

Not sure. However, both coaches said they had no complaints. There was apparently swing and seam movement. If there wasn't notable uneven bounce and not "excessive turn" (well there wouldn't be, as spinners weren't even used) then it's hard to see any grounds for reporting a pitch.

The people I feel most sorry for are the match organisers, caterers and other stallholders, and staff who may be on casual pay. All face reduced income and maybe even a loss with the match likely to finish mid-afternoon latest unless Glamorgan make a sudden turnaround in the batting today.

The players won't mind some time off and spectators who are staying can do something else on day three - there's a very nice preserved railway not far away.

Duly achieved. The next biggie I think would be the 465 put on by John Jameson and Rohan Kanhai for Warwickshire v Gloucestershire in 1974.
