I think there is clear difference in standard between the two divisions now and the "test ground" county side now represent the whole of the 1st division with the exception of Somerset. Performing in the 1st division is going to become more and more important to getting the test side.

To be honest in a generations time I can see the domestic scene changing completely and some counties may well disappear from the top domestic competitions.

Have to admit, having seen Bell-Drummond a few times I haven't been that impressed and know a Kent member who has a similar opinion.

Buttler not available for selection playing in the IPL, it was straight choice he was given with ECB blessing.

Think they will go same team that played in South Africa with Vince in for Taylor at 5. To be hones I would be quite happy with that, though Hales and Compton probably only have this up coming series to make an impression.

Will be surprised if we don't beat Sri Lanka comfortably, can't see their batting line up without the two greats in it anymore, scoring many in early summer against our seam attack.

I would look carefully into whether Miami is going to be practical without a car. I have been a few times and it is a sprawling very car centric city. For example the Dolphins stadium is around 10 miles from downtown Miami and pretty much everyone takes a car to the game in my experience. The area round it has little to do and is well away from the other tourist stuff to do.

Just seen you don't drive, sigh that is a bit of a handicap in the states with the exception of a few big cities.

Sounds incred.

I have done similar stuff to this in the past but ironically the only thing on sporting place on your list I have done is been to the Chargers stadium, which to be honest by American sporting stadia is well past its sell by date.

You have UCLA in la and Cal in the Bay Area for more college stuff. Though i would go whole hog with the college stuff when you are in the Deep South as they take ridiculous seriously. If you want an alternative area in the us that is sporting mad I would recommend the Pacific north west, a Seahawks game in particular.

You into the other Big 4 us sports as you will catch the playoffs in baseball and the start of the NBA/NHL season which you could tie into the trip. I would recommend highly NHL games even though it is the least popular of the sports I think it is the best one to watch live.

Not sure how much of a sightseer you are but California is amazing especially with the car. Especially the coastal road from la to San Fran is stunning and Yosemite national park is incred as well.

Basically you can't go wrong apart from watch yourself with the buses, they are very ghetto. I personally would stick with hire cars and planes but if you are on a strict budget then fair dos.

If you have any questions feel free to ask, this is a bit of a specialist subject of mine!

I am fine with having Ballance along with Cook and Compton if he has got his technique sorted. He showed in 2014 that he can be fluent once he gets himself in.

I like Hildreth whether he is good enough for England I am not sure but would be willing to give him a go. Vince not in test cricket yet for me, if we are picking the best XI available Bell probably is in the team but I think England have moved on.

Really impressed by Jake Ball's improvement in the last 12 months, has added a yard of pace, can get bounce from a length and move the ball. I think both the Curran brothers are slam dunk picks for the future as bowling all rounders, very talented.

Very sadden by this. I have seen Taylor play more than most as a member of Nottinghamshire and he very much deserved to make it into the England team in the last year.  He was in particular a fantastic one day player and had the ability to work the ball for runs when so many others couldn't.

Hopefully an early detection has saved his life, but it seems cruel at such a young age to be forced to retire not having fulfilled his potential at the top level.

The ATP and WTA are separate entities away from the grand slams. They have different events and in general the ATP players are paid more for playing the same amount (3 sets)as the women, even at dual events like Indian Wells last week the women's final was on bt sport and the men's on sky.

In an hypothetical example how far do you have to go down the men's rankings that you make Serena Williams a favourite in a 3 set match? 100,200, 1000, 5000....??

I think Jordan has played way too much international cricket for England over the last couple of years. He doesn't contribute enough with ball or bat and being an exceptional fielder seems to be blind some of his inadequacies.

It's not an easy ride, mostly desert and has at least 2 or 3 significant long climbs en route. There is definitely a very steep climb coming out of the la metro area whichever way you go.

Probably like bilzerian side but have no real idea of his fitness/ cycling background. I mean some of the climbs will be impossible for someone who has no fitness.

Definitely do the drive from San Francisco to la, it is stunning especially the bit south of Monterrey/ Carmel area.

Got to be honest I am not fan of LA, thought universal studios was a good day out however. Personally I would do far less time in la and more time in San Francisco/ San Diego and generally driving around California.

Anyone doing parkrun this weekend?

Off to Graves parkrun in Sheffield, you get to run through a community farm which is a bit different.

Agree have to give hales time, still early questions there though.
Questions more about Jonnys keeping. Ideal situation possibly Bairstow to really hit his strides as a batter, him move to 5, Buttler keeps at 7 and Compton opens?
Jimmy is class!

Was suggesting the same thing in the pub this weekend, bairstow's batting has been good enough to play him as a batsman at the moment.

My wife and I are determined to get involved in this. We are both dreadfully out of shape but have started the long slog preparing ourselves. It was horrible at the start of January but I must admit I'm starting to enjoy the trips to the gym.

We have set the middle of March as our target and have found the parkrun we'd like to have a go at. The times are irrelevant, we both just want to finish the race without having to take any breaks.

What I really like is its something achievable we can do and both feel proud of ourselves for achieving something TOGETHER at the end. Wonderful for our health, our lifestyle and our relationship - I can't see any negatives at all.

Good luck to both of you.

About 2 years ago, I was horrificly out of shape running anymore than 100m was a real challenge, I found this out very quickly doing couch to 5k. I am still most definitely considerably overweight but am in a lot better state of fitness and geniunely think I wouldn't be still running if it wasn't for the fact that I am totally addicted to parkrun.

Even if you can't run all the way that isn't an issue at parkrun, they have a tail runner whose job it is to stay behind everyone and make sure that everyone completes the course who wants to. I think the biggest concern of everyone who starts parkrun and running in general is that they will finish last, people will pack away before they have completed the course etc. This NEVER happens at parkrun.
