    That's annoying. That run out might cost us 10-15 runs.

    Well surely we'll defend 328 against this Sussex line up.

    Obvious securing the win is the most important thing. But coming away with a healthy NRR improvement would be no bad thing - as we well know, it could come down to that.

    Gubbins might just be the greatest all-rounder in the history of cricket.

    Or at least today at the Bowl.

    Probably, but would you want to run around with 'Gubbins' on the back of your football shirt?

    If he did, he’d probably be doing it for Chelsea.

    Fair play to us. Dawson indeed straight out.

    Absolutely nothing against him at all. But the competition for the top three places is seriously tough, and that means needing to make quick, decisive decisions and not carrying players who you don't intend to fully utilise.

    I'm not surprised to see Overton in. I always had him down as Archer's replacement.

    I love all these country-country or county-county match-ups (eg Overton v Banton).
