    Sounds like a punch up in a night club. Key question will be did Stokes start it or was someone having a pop at him.

    I would have taken Wood before Overton and taken one less before taking Ballance he must be the team n barber excellent waiter as he surely can't play

    I'd have taken Overton but Plunkett over Ball
    Wood will prob go on the Lions tour.

    Still think they'll use the Lions tour for players to find form

    Can see wickets a tumbling now as the run rate grows.

    We were on top of it, but now it is starting to slip away a tad. Up to the plate steps Jos Buttler. Definitely has it in him to win this single handedly. But ........

    Looks like England will win this just on D/L
    (Buttler) Ali saving the day again, the bloke thrives on coming into situations with England on the back foot! (He should have a fun filled winter then!

    Don't like the D/L method at all. I know it's hard to find any system that really works, but last night I still had West Indies down as favourites. Just one more wicket would have changed everything.

    A great shame it got rained off, it could have gone either way, but I'm sure it would have been an exciting finish.

    Last years champs Middlesex relegated with the Bears, they were deducted 2 points for slow over rate in the abandoned game due to the stow being fired. The thing is as the game was heading to a draw they had planned on using spinners to bowl through the overs quickly which wouldn't have meant a points deduction. Be intersting to see if this rumbles on as they only went down by 1 point.

    It's crazy that two teams that won the league in the last 5 years can get relegated!

    Pre season odds
    Yorkshire: 5/2

    Middlesex: 3/1

    Warwickshire: 5/1

    Surrey: 5/1

    Somerset: 5/1

    Hampshire: 9/1

    Lancashire: 16/1

    Essex: 20/1

    Essex won it undefeated at a canter, Lancs came 2nd, Middlesex & Warwickshire bottom 2 and relegated and Yorkshire stayed up by 2 points!

    Who says the bookies are always right!

    The problem with a small league is the turnover of teams is too great, I wonder what the odds are of Warwickshire being div 1 champion in two years time?

    I think getting out of division 2 is a big enough task at present!

    I don't think they should have any problems with a fully fit Stone and the rest of the attack and hopefully the batters can knuckle down next year, the new signings have brought a freshness to the squad and hopefully will flourish
