You cant pick a Test team purely on CC stats, for either batsmen or bowlers

The reason is that the Championship isnt a like for like reflection of Test cricket. Pitches, weather conditions, match balls and quality of opposition are all factors that should be considered.

I dont care what Ballance averages this season in county cricket. Hes had more than a fair crack at the top level and was found wanting. Plenty of young bats doing well in the opening couple of rounds, get them in. After watching the likes of Ballance and Jennings in recent times it beggars belief that Hildreth has never had a go!

Good to see Clarke and Hameed in the runs. Plenty of first class matches before the Ashes for them to make a proper case.

Sibley now has 5 tons in five games.
Seems the move from Ashtead to Warwickshire is paying off. Also he is still very young.

Absolutely crazy game at Sofia Gardens!

Not sure when the last time we scored 600! And we hardly have a lead. Must be like the M4 in Cardiff... are we sure it's April?

Couldnt agree more with this, read something the other day where he was preaching like it was gospel. Looking forward to seeing him as a pundit on sky over this season seen as he is the authority on all things cricket.

Next head of the ICC?

You clearly haven't been following my opinions very closely.  :D
