The BBC today have the story that Shakib Al Hasan will be back ...

... which I thought was already in the bank, but good news all the same.

Wonder if we're allowed to get rid of that stupid camouflage T20 kit (although I guess there are a couple that we need to hide in the field)
Have to say I quite liked the kit and it was in a good cause. Chances are it will be changed this year anyway - anything to get some more money out of the paying customers!

Worcs 43/1, just lost the wicket of James Cameron. Sounds (from the BBC local commentary) like it kept a bit low.

Partnership of captain and ex-captain now.

"Solanki fancied that one, he gave it the kitchen sink and it went down the plug hole" they say.

Would be interested to know how many people are in the ground, the bowlers are getting some decent rounds of applause.

Cracinfo are showing James Cameron as captain. Is that a mistake?

So what are we going to do?

It won't take many wins to stick around in Div 1, but despite my early optimism we seem to be finding ways to talk ourselves out of pressing home an advantagious position.

If we were just beaten propperly I think I could just take it that we're not good enough, but I don't think there's been a game yet where we haven't been in either a good or great position and found a way to avoid winning. This just gives me the feeling that we're not outclassed in Div 1 but failing to turn our moderate abilities into a moderate number of points.

I'm concerned about the effect five losses on the bounce will have on team spirit, which up to date has been excellent.

We don't have the seam bowling resources to bowl sides out cheaply twice in the same game, so we're always going to have to play catch-up with the bat. Sadly, our tops six, as a unit are under-performing quite dramatically.

Sod the team, I'm worred about the effect on my spirit.

Went down to Lords last night to watch the Worcs vs Middlesex 40 over thing. It wasn't close, we lost wickets early enough to have to be very cautious in the middle overs, particularly considering the quality of our last four batsmen (wicket keeper batting at 8 or 9 is a bit of an issue).

Cameron hit a decent 50 and Gareth Andrews smacked a few later on (with is mutant bat) to make the total non-embarrassing.

However M'sex got of to a flier, not just with the bat but with many of the 12 wides we conceeded being in the opening overs. Once they needed less than 5 an over we had nothing to put the pressure on them.

Yup. Decent bowlers, but nothign really quick and no decent spinner, once the opo is set against Worcs they can bat forever.

Shantry did well last year, but watching his odd chest-on, awkward action I can't see how he could put on any more pace. Ajmal will do us a lot of good later in the season but from a bowling point of view we're a touch stumped.

That's what I've been more surprised about, I reckon we've got some decent batting there, but when things start to wobble we've been colapsing in a heap. Bag of nerves that lot i think.

Anyone - is New Road within walking distance of a railway station in Worcester? Alternatively what's parking like? I'm thinking of going to the last day of Worcs/Notts on the 1st June.

If you go into Foregate St station it's fine, from Shurb Hill it's miles

13 mins walk according to Google, if you warm up before exiting the train you should be able to do it in 11

Directions

Cheers, I did Google it but wanted the human touch answer as well. Trains from New Street go to Foregate by the looks of things. I love being able to (occaisonally) get to places efficiently on the train, bit different to at home in Lincolnshire. Just hope Notts' batting can make a 4th day worth going to see!

Foregate Street is ideal, but even Shrub Hill is perfectly walkable - maybe 20 minutes max. Compared to Bristol it's a breeze.

The Duncan Fearnley factory shop is near Shrub Hill, you could get y'self a bat on the way home.
