There seem to be elements of Chris Jordan and the Curran brothers in his backstory, which is probably going to become increasingly common in the modern world.

Isn't one hypothesis, among numerous others, that the cricket balls currently being used swing and seam more than usual?

The first round of matches was played in April before the heatwave hit, and conditions were quite damp. The current round has been after the heatwave broke and conditions were damp again. Not much Championship cricket played in between.

Warwickshire swapped Clarke for Sibley. Worcestershire bought in Farnell, do we count Kolpaks? If so Hampshire bought in Rousseau and I think Abbott was in that time frame too.

James Tredwell (injury)
Will Gidman (to move into coaching)
Matt Hunn (to pursue a career outside cricket)

Lancashire have a theoretical chance of survival. Their best points haul is 22 so far this season. If they repeat that against Hampshire, they have to hope that Notts lose and gain less than 3 bonus points.

Of course, in theory Lancs could gain 24 points in which case Notts would need 5 to survive (and Yorkshire 2).

With hindsight effectively decided in the first game: Lancs v Notts: Lancs collapse second innings 49/0 to 73 all out. Leaving a target of 10.
http://www.espncricinfo.com/series/8...ision-one-2018

and against Yorkshire in July: Lancs collapse first innings 45/0 to 109 all out surrending a 83 run first innings lead.

Playing like against your closest rivals leads to division two.

Cheers!

I don't think the div 2 title is finalised yet either...although both are already promoted IIRC.

Lancashire just announced a squad without Onions (no explanation - total silence) and no Maharaj (gone home - no explanation but was signed for 4 championship matches).

Guess they are not expecting to win.

Whilst there's nothing riding on the result, Surrey will be missing Elgar (gone home) and both Currans ("rested" ahead of the ODI tour of Sri Lanka, the party for which apparently leaves next weekend) for the home game with Essex. Why are we even playing the Championship this late and sending players off on tour so early? We'll have to go with Patel as the fifth bowler or a very long tail with Morkel at 8.

Ah, that's a pity...and bloody annoying.

Dunno if Cook will be back for the final game to open with Vijay.

I'm sure it was announced he was done for the season prior to last week's match. Last season the ECB made him available for the final two games but, with Essex already champions, he didn't play. I assume the baby his wife was expecting during the final Test has now arrived, in which case in many jobs he'd be on paternity leave.

Yorkshire signed Köhler-Cadmore and Warwickshire Hose in that time too. I’m sure there must have been some other Kolpaks? Lancs signing Vilas?

Think this list just proves that most counties are doing it. Some like Notts and Warwickshire a little more than others.

It would be interesting to see the list of departures over the same timescale.

Looking at tomorrow’s games, can Notts get the 5 points they need or will we see capitulation along the lines of 2006 when Notts needed just 2 points to survive (playing Mushy’s Sussex) and gained none?!

Confirmed on the Essex website that he's not in the squad. Fair enough....a bit greedy to demand another live Cook show after the delights of a fortnight ago.
