Can you shed some light on Hilton Cartwright - I gather he plays for WA and is joining Middlesex as the overseas player this season as we languish in the depths of the 2nd division!

Had a disappointing Shield season, tho his coach batted him out of place in the top order for much of the season. He seems better off in the middle order. He is primarily a batsman who can bowl a few overs of medium pace. He possesses good technique and seems unflappable.

Unfortunately for him his sub par season saw him slip a little from being a fringe Test player.

I expect he will make a solid contribution to your team.

Yeah, most probably said the same thing about the Chavs a year ago...

Meanwhile, Somerset follow Australiaís lead and replace Cameron Bancroft with Matt Renshaw.

Thanks H.
Have since picked up a comment from "The Mouth" that is the Dir. of Cricket at Middlesex one Gus Fraser ... (not universally liked at Middlesex for his unashamed hunger to be in front of a TV camera no matter what the occasion) ... who said "Cartwright joins Middlesex with a first-class batting average of 43.60 from 33 matches. Not a bad tonking average.

Another one of your lot that's washed up on the beach here at Lord's is Ashton Agar - for the T20 Vitality Blast T20 sh*t.

No wuzzes M. Agar, nickname Jelly, was a promising player whose development has gone backwards under coach Langer, aka the bnlg.

Cartwright has two nicknames. "Hoss" when he is playing well"Donkey" when he is not. Hopefully this stint with the Sexless will put some bubbles back into his tonic. You and the other Lordly types can supply the Mothers Ruin.

Good summary, h.

I hope he improves this season and, if the NSP must persist with the middle order allrounder nonsense, shoves Puddle out of the way.

I expect him to do well at Middlesex.

Ironic, in view of the flood talk earlier on the thread, that Worcs got in more overs on Day 1 than the other 5 matches put together.

Admittedly at Southampton ...

Joe Mennie? Is he a serious contender, or another of Lancs' "inspired" also-ran signings?

I hadn't seen the Red Rose county had signed him up. Why, I wonder. Maybe to replace the deaparting Jarvis. But looks a bit kneejerk. Lancs jettison local quicks too fast.

Actually only 3 for Hameed, and also 9 for Red Ken, so thatís a combined 23 runs for three England hopefuls... †Laughing

Notts will need to bowl sides out for sub-200 on a regular basis, given the batting depth we have. So much rests on Ross Taylor and Fat Sam, we could still concede a first innings lead here.

3, because (somewhat bizarrely) they decided at lunch 4 runs had in fact been signalled as leg-byes.

Not that it makes much difference to the start of HH's season ...

A day for low scoring generally though, it seems. The damp hand of winter still grips?

Playing half the Championship at this time of year, no surprise we donít develop Test calibre batsmen any more. Itís just a case of get as many runs as you can before you get a ball from some 70mph seamer with your name on it. Try and play with patience and you just end up averaging 20.

Test opener watch...

Markram 0 and 0. Hameed 8. Jennings 2. Stoneman 4. Renshaw 101*. What are you worried about, Aussies Wink

(I know, he cheated by going in at 3...)

Renshaw's ton one of only two so far. Innings wise, there has been one of 300+, and four over 250 - so it's obvious our batting is pants.

Battleship grey Y-fronts, 3 for £1-99 at the market pants.

Bowling wise though, with 10 Michelles after only 5 days of play, we can retire Jimmy and Stu B already can't we Very Happy ?

Todayís aggregate: 2,577 runs for 127 wickets. Average of 20.29. And thatís with decent weather for the time of year.

Thereís no way we will develop Test batsmen under these conditions.

Lancs bowlers turned up.

Batters stayed at home again (metaphorically).

Pomgolian cricket needs to recruit Caesar's ghost. JC iirc introduced cricket to Pomgolia. The ghost of JC would introduce some necessary discipline to CC.
