Has Pietersen's Twitter feed declared? All gone a bit quiet
Glamorgan in the semi best of the 3 imo.
Hopefully Hants will beat Notts
Fair play to him then, but don't choke on the humble pie Kev!
Yes go with that. Would love to be beat Hants after we got relegated in the CC and they stayed up a few years back. Certain odour about it if I remember correctly.
Hope we get the first semi final. Think its a big advantage to get the extra time to rest before the final. Should be a cracking atmosphere with the Bears in the mix.
I never have understood why Dernbach is rated a good one day bowler. He has always when I've seen him been a disaster.
The tactics in changing the batting worked well.
Imagine logistically they will be first on.
Didn't he have a good reputation as a 'death' bowler with his 90mph yorkers? One trick pony I think and probably living on reputation only now.
1 in 20 it'll come off for him and he will be a match winner usually on sky, so used to get hyped up by 'Mr Surrey' Charles Coalville back in the day but he's an awful bowler who tries to be too smart!
Now lobs down 65mph cutters which go down the leg side or sit up to be hammered away!
Should have just stick to what he was good at fast Yorkers or those useful full back of the hand slower balls every now and again
Good point, if they want to get the locals in for the non Warwickshire semi makes sense to have the Bears up first.
I am sure finch would have caught the one that Burns didn't catch so hopefully a lesson learned.
Superb chase from the bears (COUGH Warwickshire bears COUGH!). When i seen their total I didn't think we had the ability to chase that amount. Excellent performance
Another day another load of rubbish win toss and bat 178/8 thanks to Stone and Patel, no runs for Bell again and no Hain in the side are they resting players for Saturday?
Confirmed as first game. Hopefully a win in the semi and a nice rest before the final. Between that and the home crowd that's not a bad advantage.
Just missing no Hope.
200 made and lancs 45 for 2
Lancs 384 for 5 relegation here we come
Please can Ollie Stone stay fit for the next few years, absolute gas!!
Cracking inns by Pollock no fear at all!
Should have got 190 you'd hope at 6 overs in with the early wickets the bears can see it home need Rudolph out asap!
Definitely should have got more but a decent start with the ball. If Glamorgan can bat through could be in for a tight finish.
Losing their way here The Bears!
That could be a huge wicket. Fantastic spell of bowling from Patel as well.
What a run out!
Bears fielding has been sensational!
That should be that!
Now to see who the Bears will face in the final! Notts or Hants will go into the final as favourites but I wouldn't write the Bears off as they've shown all season in this comp if they click they're some force!
Hopefully a bit of success in this competition won't mask the bigger problems they face. Seemed to happen a couple of season back, big win on finals days and everything else was forgotten about.
Yep agree good article by George Dobell on cricinfo about the season etc
At least they've started recruiting and Sibley, Hose & Stone all seem confident lads that'll add something, be interesting to see how Rhodes does when he joins from yorks.
Likes of Pollock, Lamb & Thomason all stepping up at times is a bonus!
Blimey, my heart was in my mouth when that 4th ball went up! Made hard work of the 2nd half of the Glamorgan inns!
Roll on 7pm
If he does he will be in the England squad as he is already sharp
How long was that in the air for! Thought they were going to run in to each other and mess it up.
Nice break now, hopefully all refreshed for the final later.
Absolutely a mountain to chase, silly runout also
And nearly another.
I think they have blown this. Still only a quarter of the way through, but they are really struggling to even time the ball properly and losing Pollock was a massive blow.
