After the ones we've dropped (including him), that gets caught!

Good last over from Steyn, ball in the blockhole stuff.

Maybe he's got his bad day out the way now.

Even with all that awful fielding, we might have still got home had the stone-dead LBW been given (they got a run from that ball instead).

But without any doubt, our fielding didn't just cost us that win, it cost us a very comfortable win. I think it finished with six drops, one missed run-out and one missed stumping. Compared, I think, to just one missed run-out when Somerset fielded.

I'm intrigued to see what bowling attack we play today. Crane, Steyn and Holland all available for the first time; Abbott and Fidel nicely rested up; Berg practically undroppable. And at the other end, without Amla and Northeast (and even Alsop), we're very light on available batters.

It might well be a five man attack, batting at 7 - 11, with Dawson in the top 6 as sixth bowler. But even then, we need to leave out one of Fidel, Abbott, Steyn, Crane, Berg and Holland.

1-2, great opening. Both the ex Durham players out, the suffering Stoneman and the fading Borthwick.

Very cosmo new ball pair with Edwards and Steyn.

And Abbott to come.

And Morkel playing for Surrey.

Like the seventies with all these high quality internationals playing.

Shame it isn't Greenidge and Richards opening the batting.

Definitely a strong bowling attack but batting looks a bit light especially if Roussow carries on playing the way he has done recently.

Weatherly and Taylor are in some decent form.

Even if Rile fires, the batting still looks light. Big opportunity for Ervine though, given that someone needs to be a permanent replacement for Amla.

But talking of Rilee, I found his interview with Solent recently very insightful. It was after either his 90 or his 100 in the group stage, and he was asked about his limited overs batting vs his first class batting. He said it had nothing to do with the format; it was purely because he is used to batting against the white kookaburra and the red kookaburra, but not the red duke. His four day matches for us are the only time he has ever faced the red duke in his whole career. And given that he missed the back end of last season with his finger injury, that can be narrowed down even further to say that he has only ever faced the red duke in April and May, this year and last. When explained like that, it becomes a lot more understandable.

He came across as very confident that he would get it right. He just needs time - and ideally some summer weather!

Morkel coming out to bat, half way through a Steyn over.

Well done Fidel. Good stuff from in those last 25 odd overs. Just a shame about what went before it, aside from the very first over.

Even despite a long rest, the problem this season with Abbott still seems to be there.

Still plenty of time to lose a couple of the top order again tonight.

Although, to be honest, if I'm Surrey, I'm not sure I would enforce the FO. Give the seamers a break, smash some runs to push us further into the dirt, and then steam-roller us in the fourth innings.
