Does that not maybe have quite a bit to do with the fact they've spent hours in the field being battered for two double tons? 😂

No, not really. You can't have it both ways. Sussex had only three people pass 50 across both innings.

They only fielded for 26 more overs than Kent did. What's that, about an extra two hours?

Hampshire being hit by injuries at Radlett. Liam Dawson out for the season with an Achilles rupture, and Ryan Stevenson stretchered off after getting injured in the warm up. Possibly only needing 8 wickets will give Middlesex a sniff, but Hampshire should really win.

I think it says more about how crap Sussex's attack is without Ollie Robinson

Unfortunate but will probably endear him to fans even more given the context.

A noble effort from our kids in what is essentially a 3rd XI. The more I look at it as a Surrey member, this competition is pointless except for giving the youngsters a workout

Not sure how you've been affected that much worse than anyone else?

I can't tell if you're on a windup or not...

Burns, Pope, S Curran, Foakes, T Curran, Roy all unavailable, Amla stuck in South Africa. Morkel in Australia. All those players would walk into our first XI if available.

So yeah, compared to other counties we're at a pretty big disadvantage...

Dont think many have overseas players available, so we can dis-count Morkel and Amla issue.

Even aside from the bought in from other counties depth of squad, really?

Yorkshire missing Root, Rashid, Willey, Ashwin, Ballance, Waite, Coad and Fisher?

Sussex without Van Zyl, Archer, Robinson, Jordan, Magoffin, Wiese etc?

The fact is, Essex are the only unaffected side, I don't think you can say any other county has been disproportionately affected, and obviously the bigger counties will take the worst of it.

Why are you including the likes of Ballance? Injury or something? When did Rashid last play a first class game?

If you want me to include injured Surrey players as well as overseas cancellations and blokes who barely play FC cricket, then we're also missing McKerr, Clark, Dernbach, Plunkett, Topley, Neser to name a few. So yeah, 14 odd players unavaiable for one reason or another

Its okay, you can flash the chequebook at it - whats Jamie O, your 13th quick? :) 

Ballance is an odd one - he has been unavailable for selection due to a recurrent illness but there are literally no details - sounds worryingly like "those" problems might be back.

Ben Foakes with a ton in his first FC game in 11 odd months. Ah.
