Ah well here it depends what you mean by quick.  If you mean Mark Wood bowls some seriously rapid deliveries, then yes he clearly does - the spell to Joe Root in the T20 semi a year back was the only time I've seen Nay Joe Lad done for pace and some of his early speel short balls are vicious.  If however you are asking can he maintain that pace over 10-20 overs a day, I'd have to say that there is not much evidence to support that theory, which is concerning because the bowler to whom he is most often compared, Simon Jones, could keep going at and around 90mph late in the day.

A good description of the warm up game - explains about who batted twice etc.... also the fact that essentially we were bowled out for 195!! before finally finishing the whole day on 319 losing a total of 14 wickets.

And so it continues...

"A second England wicket falls, as @vincey14 plays a glorious stroke through the covers before being caught behind for 14."

(Test Match Special Twitter)

Story of his test career. Gets in, looks a million dollars and then gets in the same fashion. I just hope for the second game starting tonight that they try Malan at 3 because Vince isn't the answers.

If Vince is going to continue I can't see how he bats 3 either....he is a 5 all day long he just does not have it technically or the patience to bat long it seems...the opposite of a Trott for example

I was just mentally adding up the amount of players we have tried in the last couple of years to fill a problem spot since Trott and Bell, and KP of course retired, it's a helluva lot

Lyth
Jennings
Hameed
Carbery
Duckett (mine is a pint)
Ballance
Vince
Stoneman
Malan
Westley don't forget him

There are probably others, and there is Livingstone waiting maybe for a chance.

That's an awful lot of players to try in a fairly short space of time

Hameed and Malan are the two I've been most impressed by, more for temperament than anything else.

Malan has temperament, technique and fortune. He'll have a good five years, methinks.

All of the others lack at least one - Ballance has everything you'd want save the technique, Lyth had it all and a knack of meeting good nuts to match. Many lack two or more, and Jennings used everything in his first knock.

Crane out injured and leach called up....

A genuine spin bowler and Somerset fans on the forum get some recognition at last  :)

Is there room these days thou with multi dimensional tests players for an actual specialist spinner? Or does Ben stokes once again give us options of a non batsman in the final 11?

chances are leach won't play in reality as England have needed Mo's runs down at 8 in recent years

Leach called up

Leach has had a long wait for a call up, for various reasons. I am pleased to see success in the Championship rewarded. It keeps the incentive there for other players, too.
I feel very sorry for Crane after a winter that may have been a strange mix of excitement (Ashes tour) and frustration (limited playing opportunities). No doubt he will be well treated and hope he makes a speedy recovery. Very unusual injury for a spin bowler, I can't recall another spinner having a stress fracture of the lower back - perhaps others have a better memory...

Time to let Mo carry the drinks and play a specialist spinner in Leach

2nd Warm Up game - 1st day.....

Overton and Woakes in - Wood not playing
Stokes playing as a batter only - not even fielding

Woakes given the new ball - looks like it is going to stay that way as well
Mo and Joe take 3 wickets each
Broad takes 2 but has a few dropped by the sounds of things

Unfortunately he'll be carrying the drinks for the tour. You must know by now, our management love players who can bat but the series is a big Moeen. He was poor in Australia.

Are they really that confident that Leach won't be called in international cricket?

Have you seen him bowl? His action is fine. When he got tested he only failed because the set the machine up wrong.

I've watched him bowl loads at Taunton and the decision to sanction him in the first place was pathetic. Nothing wrong with his action whatsoever.
