    Our batting last year was appalling, it's staggering that the club has done little to recruit any more batting talent. Admittedly, the club was unfortunate that Covid struck and prevented overseas players from coming back but it could have looked for another batter from England.

      I can't get the stream to work.

      Who are these players. Never heard of any of them.
      "But I don't want to go among mad people," Alice remarked. "Oh, you can't help that," said the Cat: "We're all mad here. I'm mad. You're mad." "How do you know I'm mad?" said Alice. "You must be," said the Cat, "or you wouldn't have come here."

      Two are making their first class debuts: Carson and Crocombe
      Clark played last season, this is his second F/C
      Claydon is an old lag (37 I believe) but is making his Sussex debut

      all the others have played quite a few games for Sussex

      141-8

      Sussex batting as strong as usual and looking likely to get zero batting points. At lease we have a stellar bowling line up to get us back into the game.

      Claydon is a proper old fashioned (Colin Milburn/Eddie Hemmings) cricketer. You wouldn't be calling him through for a single!

      What’s happened to Ravi Bopara? I thought he was signed for all formats?

      i appreciate no spectators but as a cricket lover, cricket should be ashamed at how the standard has gone down so much. People at top keep saying no interest in championship cricket. Its not the game but the standard. Hardly anybody playing that would tempt you to part with your money. Apart from Brown and Robinson at moment no more then good club players. Todays eleven must be one of weakest ever and could have said that several times last year.
      Interesting to see what our championship teams were 10, 15 and 20 years ago. To think I used to drop everything to watch Prior,Yardy,Kirtly,Goodwin, Mustaq, Martin=Jenkins etc Before that took time from office to see Richards,Warne,Holding,Greig, Imran etc. ECB are just letting it die for sake of 20/20

      Listening to the England /Ireland ODI, can we not offer this Campher bloke a contract?
