Unchanged from last week.
We've won the toss & are batting.

Reasonable start, it seems from Cricinfo viewing.
I'm on Radio 5 Sports Extra where we listeners are being treated to what Martin Emerson has been up to during the winter. Most interesting.
I believe Durham are playing Middlesex.

Disappointing that neither Willey or Rhodes are playing today. Glad we are batting but would have thought playing Willey (for Brooks) and Rhodes (for Leaning) would have strengthened both our bowling and batting. Next match we will have Root available so presumably we will need to make at least one change for that match.

I hope we'll see a degree of improvement in the bowling with one game under their belts. But it's good to have quality players to come in as and when required.
Kent player has done a Michael Vaughan apparently - out handled ball for a duck

I didn't see any great need for changes after one match. Rhodes was unlucky to miss out in the first game, but having picked Leaning it's to better stick with him, at least until Root comes in for the next game.

Rhodes extra bowling makes a negligible difference - so suggesting Willey for Brooks could easily make the bowling worse. Kevin Howells interviewed David Willey, who said he hadn't bowled with a red ball for ten months. You can't expect him to come straight in with no practice and do better than Brooks, who is proven class in this division. Hopefully Willey will get some overs in the seconds, before he's ready to come in.

Sorry Rey but do not agree. Willey bowled superbly in India and is fine batsman. However, with both openers now gone we will see how strong our batting is today and after we lose Johnny Bairstow for the test matches.

Maybe not such a good start now with Gale gone too

Looks like the usual big centuries from lower order then

Willey did well in T20 I agree, but still doesn't mean he'll do well in Championship cricket.

The radio commentators were not complimentary about the Warks bowlers in the first hour, but they've improved now to take three wickets. It's down to Bairstow. Again.

I just wonder how long gale has despite his brilliant captaincy

he had never been the most technically correct batsman and getting older his reactions may not compensate

mind you in his not the only weak link in our batting which has been suspect since the season before last

Warwickshire have not bowled very well, but Lees blown away by a full one, Lyth having played well skied a ball too full to pull and Gale played round a full one.

********

I guess he will continue as long as his batting is up to scratch - i.e. like last season where he scored 1000 runs in the Championship!

As for our batting having been suspect for two seasons, wow - just think what we could have achieved!

Our top order looks decidedly dodgy. Agree about Gale's suspect batting and I do not rate his captaincy highly - too predictable with bowling choices, field placement and general decision making. I am not very optimistic about our chances in this year's County Championship without a regular class overseas batsman (Williamson only available for short period) and likely to be without 3/4 test/international call ups through the Summer. Of course, I hope to be proved wrong. Come on Johnny please again happy.gif

I've been critical of Gale in the past for his apparent captaincy by numbers or off the back of a fag packet but in the past two seasons he's been excellent.
His field placings can be imaginative & he also uses his bowlers wisely.
The last game was a prime example of this.
It certainly wasn't his fault that the bowlers couldn't provide the necessary wickets.
It's easy to forget his success with the bat also & I think his fielding's improved as well.
So let's not write him off too soon.
Lees is already under enough pressure due to his current lack of runs, let's not burden him with the captaincy just yet.
Anyone know why they appear to have come off for lunch after 4 balls of Rankin's over, is it raining?

I think everyone acknowledged the coaches included our batting was vulnerable last year - bairstow and bresnan got us out of the mire generally


looks like gale was late on his dismissal - the reactions are going

I cannot see him scoring many this season against quality first division attacks - hope I am wrong

we need to bed in a future captain

Yes, they went off for rain, so they take lunch as it was within about 5 minutes of the scheduled lunch time anyway.

Gale's only 32, no need to pension him off quite yet.

Without looking at the stats, I don't think April is his month. A combination of early season conditions and needing time in the middle. If Leaning scores runs in this match and Gale doesn't in the second innings, I wouldn't be averse to dropping him for Root in the next game.

And Alibor remains incredibly wrong about his captaincy. He is the leader of this team on the field and in the dressing room, and deserves a lot of the credit for Yorkshire's success. As much as Dizzy does, for comparison.

I don't really understand what the argument is here. The title was won last year despite inconsistent top order batting. Those who pulled things out of the fire last year will not be available much this year, especially JB. This leaves vulnerable. If certain of the top order keep failing Dizzy will have to give others a go, with Rhodes first in line. I can't see how this is controversial. We have all enjoyed the last few years, but that is gone now and we need to make honest appraisals of the players.

Quite right, ECT. The team now have an opportunity to prove us "worriers" wrong, myself included.

The main man out!!. He has provided about 50% of our runs recently, it now needs someone else to contribute. Who??
