For Olly
Surrey have named a 12 player squad for the game against Leicestershire on 2 August at Guildford.
Rory Burns is currently unavailable as he is recharging before the final games of the County Championship season, Ben Foakes is no doubt doing the same. Rolling Eyes
Hashim Amla has retired from white ball cricket.
Matt Dunn has recovered from the injury on Sunday whatever it was.
James Taylor remains on the treatment table.
Every one else is playing in a competition called the hundred  Erm
Ben Geddes will skipper Surrey for the first time in a classified game.  clap
FULL SQUAD:
B Geddes (c)
N Barnwell
J Blake (wk)
M Dunn
N Kimber
T Lawes
Y Majid
C McKerr
R Patel
N Reifer
C Steel
A Virdi
Absolutely ridiculous that Burns and Foakes have to recharge before the final games of championship and (England in Foake's case.)
Would leave Virdi out after Sunday but probably will be Kimber or Barnwell.
Over to you chaps  thumbsup

Cheers jimbob

Is Jamie Smith injured, or playing in the 16.4? What about Amla? I take it Worrall is also injured. That squad/team is an absolute joke, what an insult to cricket fans and team supporters

Jamie Smith got a wildcard contract in the hundred, not sure about Amla - though could be they want to use it as a development competition

Worrall is at the 16.4 and according to churchy on comms last week Amla has retired from white ball cricket.
Will now add that to the main thread OK

If Sunday's game against Bucks is anything to go by, we're going to be beaten to a pulp in this competition. That's more like abuse than development.

Anyway, thanks for setting up the thread, JimBob.

Dunn dropping out of his second spell against Bucks was apparently due to a touch of cramp and more precautionary than serious. Lawes didn't play then as he got tonsillitis late on in the Warks match.

So who misses out? Amongst this sickly lot, it'll be staggering if all twelve are still fit by the morning! If by some chance they are, I'll say Virdi will be on drinks duty but I doubt it'll make much difference.

I'm one of the two thousand with a ticket for this game. Surrey have let the Guildford ground badly deteriorate and I fear this could be one of Surrey's last games there against a first class county.

Cheers for the info Guildford seems sad if that will be the case, once stewie said he didn't want a championship game being played there maybe then the writing was on the wall.

Dunn plays. Barnwell on drinks duty.
Leics win toss and field. Cloudy and a bit muggy now, suspect very hot later.

Actually worse than I thought it was going to be, didn't help losing the toss, but poor batting all the way down, the running between the wicket was especially poor, fielding was below average at best, and apart from Majid, shocking bowling, how did Steel bowl 10 overs, has he got something on Geddes?? Going to need a handicap system I reckon, cos this bowling will be lucky to defend 400

Everything thing Gooch said is spot on shocking umpiring for Patel and Blake but we can't blame that as the excuse for that performance.
Totally see what Guildford said about the ground going to ruin on the stream, where have all the stands gone?

Going out now. Will respond late afternoon / early evening. I might even be slightly calmer then.

Yeah, a few years ago they used to put in temporary raised seating along the Woodbridge Road side of the ground. After that and until now, two or three rows of wooden benches and/or plastic seats all the way along there. Now zippo! Just an empty area with a steward at either end stopping anyone trying to sit or stand there to watch the game.

Why? Well, and no prizes for guessing what the PA announcer blamed it on ... 'Elf 'n Safety! Some worries about a batsman smashing the ball that side of the ground into a spectator - possibly sounds understandable. However, ... that's only the Surrey CCC take on things. The decision didn't stem from Guildford council or Guildford cricket club apparently. Guildford cricket big wigs didn't agree with it and were very unhappy with the reduced attendance allowed (and reduced income although I did my bit to help Ale Wink ) as were a few locals I know who aren't Surrey members and so couldn't get a ticket even though they've been going to watch Surrey play there for donkeys' years. Several spectators and Guildford officials reasonably pointed out that as the wicket was pretty much in the centre of the ground, anyone watching on the Wharf side of the ground (where there is permanent tiered seating) were just as much in the firing line as anyone along the road side would have been. Madness!

Perhaps a truer reason is that Surrey (and Alec Stewart, in particular it's said) don't like playing there and are looking for ways to claim it's not fit for purpose. The outfield was poor as well. Bumpy and uneven in places. Part of that's down to the extreme heat this summer at a ground which traditionally dries quickly. However, if Surrey / Lee Fortis (head groundsman at the Oval and now Guildford since the groundsman there died a couple of years ago) had cared for it half as much as our London base, fielding wouldn't have been a lottery at times.

All very sad and made worse by an extremely ordinary performance.

Although the reduction in the number of games in the County Championship will kill off red ball cricket nationally at outgrounds, except maybe two or three, Surrey will surely need to find another venue during the H word competition. Do any of you know of any alternative venues ? The LSE is barely fit for purpose for second eleven cricket, is it ?

Durham 107/6 off 25.

That's good going but we have to factor in that Rushworth will pick up 3/33 from his 10.

Yeah and I can’t understand the obsession to give Steel the ball. Maybe the plan is the Durham batsmen will get confused being unsure whether to milk him for singles or bash him for boundaries!

Hate to say I told you so but ... Steel's next over goes for four consecutive singles, a dot and then a boundary to finish things off. We had 'em in trouble when the 6th wicket fell but are letting 'em back in, especially with Rushworth and our batting line up.

Totally unnecessary to be using Steel so much.

Looks like Majid is going to bowl his 10. He's done well in his opening games but with Durham 8 down I would have two of our quicks bowling at their tail.

Good performance from the bowlers. Would have thought it might have made sense to have registered another batsman, maybe Justin Broad or Angus Lovell to balance the side out a bit better. I assume they would have had to get time off from their respective commitments but might well have jumped at the chance.

Yep, they are real stars travelling that distance, especially given the players Surrey didn't have available and the stuffing we got on Tuesday.

Don't disagree with that, JimBob, but gave up on the dreadful stream and had to go out anyway before Durham were all out and so didn't see enough to properly judge. Fair to say though that it was a good team bowling performance.

Although you'll think I'm plugging my man here (and you may be right Wink), powerplay bowling at the start of these games is bl**dy difficult. Just two fielders outside the circle for the first 10 overs. Leics won that part of the game hands down on Tuesday and never looked back - we were 32/2 off 10 [Hendicks impressed and was particularly on the money] whilst they were 64/1 at the same stage. Although Dunn got some tap yesterday, he took two wickets whilst Lawes was very tidy with one to leave Durham up against it at 51/3 after their opening 10.

Majid has impressed for someone so young, bowling sensibly and with composure. However, in very different ways, he's been helped by the other Surrey bowlers. Yesterday he joined the party after others had set things up nicely with 4 wickets and continued their good work. On Tuesday, Leics were so ahead when he was on, their main aim was to keep things ticking over without the need for any big shots and daft risks. None of that is to criticise Majid. Just emphasisng it's early days and we still need to see him bowl when the game is evenly poised and could go either way.

Virdi appears to be a concern. Poor on Tuesday - too much down the legside and despatched to the boundary. I could have understood - and expected - him being left out against Durham. However, once picked, I'm puzzled he wasn't one of our seven bowlers to turn his arm.

I hope the rumours that Virdi may be considering leaving the game at the end of the season are untrue but yesterday won’t have helped him recapture his passion if he has lost that.

Clearly his future doesn’t lie at The Oval but I believe he could do a job for another county with a coaching team that believe in him.

Would be horrendously sad if he did leave the game - his treatment the last 12 or so months is already a big blot on this Surrey coaching staffs book in my opinion, if they've pushed him to the point of not wanting to play the game anymore, then I would be lost for words.
A microcosm perhaps of why we struggle to develop quality spinners in this country.
