|SUSSEX V DERBYSHIRE CC2 28/05/16 GAME 7
|I am thinking Sussex will be out for revenge after being in control against us other week only to be ruled out from full points due to rain
At least Thakor is in form for us with bat and ball and Luke Fletcher wont be around like the 1st game
dont expect a win so maybe they will surprise us and do it
|NORTHANTS V DERBYSHIRE T20 27/05/16 GAME2
|Couldn,t make this game unfortunately. Northants are nothing particularly special so i,m going for an away win. Batting first s let,s see what sort of a job we make of it.
|There seems to be plenty of debate surrounding the lad,particularly after his not unexpected mauling yesterday. Was he handled correctly?, what should be his role at the club?,how high should expectations be?.
I sympathize with the lad.He is being asked to do a job of which he is not yet capable. The fault lies in the fact we have such a shortage of alternatives,which was obvious to everyone apart from GW. Wes Durston is not a front line spinner and never has been.However,he is still by far t ...
|I see Footit isn't in Surrey's team for the latest round of County championship matches, despite Rampaul being out.
Does anyone know if he's still suffering with his side strain or has he just not been picked.
If our fast bowling woes continue, might be an idea to get him back on loan if it were possible.
|DERBYSHIRE V KENT CC2 22/05/16 GAME 6
|Same squad as the Essex match which suggests it might be the same starting XI. We really need to get our asses into gear for this match and remember it,s a four day game and not a two day game. GW has highlighted the need to make our first innings count,which is something we haven,t done anywhere near often enough. We also need to bowl much better and more positively if we are to avoid looking at another score of 400 plus. It also goes without saying how important it is to hold on to any catches ...
|LANCASHIRE V DERBYSHIRE T20 GAME1 21/05/16
|DURSTON RUTHERFORD BROOM MADSEN NEESHAM C.HUGHES ELSTONE A.HUGHES THAKOR CRITCHLEY POYNTON COTTON CARTER.
Well,here we go then.Another epic journey into the land of T20 which since it,s conception has been a very hostile place as far as we are concerned. On paper,this is a squad which looks to have a fair amount of batting,though which two miss out remains to be seen. I must confess to being slightly more optimistic about our chances this year,assuming certain things slot into place and our o ...
|Will T20 be any better?
|After four very disappointing County championship draws, we move on to the start of the T20 season. Players that I feel pick themselves are, Durston, Rutherford, Neesham, Madsen, Thakor, Chesney Hughes and possibly Poynton behind the stumps. I fully expect Alex Hughes to be picked, with Broom keeping his place. The other two pace bowling places, to be honest, I can't make my mind up on !!!!!
Having been pretty useless in past years, I want to see the Falcons play with 'no fear' and really go fo ...
|Wish had not renewed my membership
Ground looks good but the play on it is dreadful
Now its the 20/20 starting and we know what happens in this
Only 50 over comp left chance in and not even June yet
Close to the worst bowling attack I have ever seen us play
No chance of getting any teams out twice. Do well to bowl a team out in
|ESSEX V DERBYSHIRE CC2 15/05/16 GAME 5
|GODLEMAN C.HUGHES RUTHERFORD MADSEN BROOM THAKOR CRITCHLEY POYNTON MILNES PALLADINO COTTON TAYLOR
At first glance this looks a team with a very long tail,an inexperienced seam attack and a novice spinner. A recipe for success or disaster? We shall see. Essex are no mugs,though i,m sure everyone around these parts are mighty glad there will be no Alistair Cook in their ranks. That guy could score a ton against us batting with a stick of rhubarb.
Personally,I would have kept Wes in the side. ...
|Old pro's v young talent.
|There have been a couple of posts recently regarding how Leicestershire have gone about their recruitment this year. Advocating taking older pros whose contracts have come to an end with their previous Counties.
The current LCCC team in action has three players in their early to mid 20's, 6 players between 31 and 34 and two others at 35 and 37. DCCC have 7 players in their 20's, 3 aged 32 and Wes aged 35.
I'm not sure that the LCCC method is the correct way to go about it as they could be prom ...
