Chanderpaul 20 runs in 4 innings. You wonder how long Chapple will allow that to continue. (Hameed has 31)

To think Harmer was playing in the Central Lancs League in 2015
Is Shiv now older than Chapple was when he hung up his spikes?

He's less than 8 months younger than Chapple now.

Chapple has never officially admitted he has retired. When appointed coach full time he was asked but he just grinned maybe added a no comment. He has however (remarkably) been removed from the list players on the Lancs website.

Anyone seen an announcement from the ECB as to whether they have made their mind up about Anderson's availability? It was undecided on their early April press release.

There's no team I love to see Essex beat than Lancashire. Sounds like a decent game for the casual viewer too. Not sure these early season matches will necessarily tell us much about the individual players in the longer run.

Positive results in all 4 Div One games of this round. Pleased that Sam Northeast made a first ton for his new county in their defeat at The Oval. Two counties - Lancs and Worcs - are winless and have just the solitary batting point between them. Too soon to suggest they might already be in a tough fight?

If Hampshire struggle it doesn't say much for South African cricket.

Karma, perhaps, although if they were relegated they'd probably just fill the remaining slots up with cheap imports.

Northeast looked very composed throughout his innings, which lasted from late the previous day until he was last man out shortly before 5pm. The pitch seemed very slow and benign, with little misbehaviour to assist any bowler, yet Northeast just looked the part, playing the ball late and seeming to have more time to play his shots than anyone else, in contrast with the rather rash and impulsive attacking shots that often seem to characterise the dismissals of the two current England Test batsmen on show. On this evidence he looks a much more convincing Test prospect than several of those already capped.

Hants fielded only six England qualified players to Surrey's ten. Frankly though, given how many of the best English players miss county games due to international commitments (including Lions matches) and now the IPL I don't blame any county for choosing the insurance of having players who have committed to always being available unless injured. By my reckoning Hants were missing only Gareth Berg from what I presume to be a full strength side, whereas Surrey were without Roy & T.Curran (IPL), Morkel (side strain), Batty (back spasm) and Meaker (bereavement), but some of those who might otherwise not have played were among the biggest contributors in a side including two teenagers and a 20 year old. Pope's innings of 145 was that of a batsman with clear international potential while Virdi, in only his fourth first class match, bowled with impressive control and consistency as well as looking to attack the batsmen on a not especially helpful pitch albeit with the insurance of a big target.

I'm afraid I can't share your sympathy for Hampshire. Particularly as their opponents had more players missing but a higher number of England qualified in the team. Despite similar uncertainty, counties make different choices.

My main point is that all counties do it, it's just the numbers that vary. Obviously each county is allowed one official overseas player. Is 1 or 2 additional non-qualified players OK, but not 3 or 4? With no quotas for these players who exploit loopholes it's each to their own. On another day Surrey might have Sam Curran, Dernbach and Dunn unavailable and replace them with Morkel, McKerr and Pillans, none of whom is England-qualified.

Don't worry, in another couple of years counties will not see the value for money in outside recruitment for a county championship of 10 matches, scattered throughout the year.

All because nobody watches or cares because they have to concentrate for more than 100 balls or decipher a scoreboard which confuses them over how many runs were scored in the first innings of the match, how a player was dismissed and heaven forbid the name of the players batting and bowling

Looking ahead to the round of matches starting tomorrow,Surrey have added Meaker and Patel to the XI that beat Hants in a 13 man squad for the trip to Old Trafford.

Looks like a bonus point battle at Taunton. Forecast is crap. Hopefully some play around the country.

Renshaw spoke after the worcs match and said "I watched hildreth and I have decided I want to bat like him" it appears he meant it.

Bugger. Wicket as I type.
