Anyone think Abell still might still have a chance of an England call up or has he missed the boat now?

I think he’s got a huge chance of being picked. A level headed chap with an abundance of talent. Personally I think being given the captaincy set his own form back a bit but now he’s firing on all cylinders.

I think his technique, especially his defence which is more important in tests, is better than many that have had a chance.

He was absolutely superb today. I did speak to a 'Set insider of sorts today though, and asked him if Abell might be in for an England call-up this summer, and his very specific answer was "no".  But new Head coach, not sure how that could be definitive at this stage, but he was adamant Abell was not fancied by England at all. Very mature innings today though. 👏

On a selfish note I hope he isn’t picked, I would rather he scored runs for Somerset. But I think he deserves a go and as you say there’s a new regime and I doubt even they know how the summer is going to pan out.

I think the same guys doing commentary did this match at the Mem - 

 

Who was the commentator with the broad Bristolian accent?

He sounded as if he might have been an ex-Rovers player.

He certainly sounded as if he was a Rovers supporter 🤣.

I still think he’d be a great replacement for Morgan in limited overs when he wants to give it up

I didn't see the end of play last night, but I have just seen enough in the first 15 minutes this morning to convince me that Bethell will play for England sooner rather than later. Warwickshire have a serious player on their hands

Spotted as a youngster in Barbados some years ago and given a scholarship by Warwickshire.

He certainly looks promising.

Overton has gone off injured after a couple of overs.

Don't worry, he's apparently back on now.

Gregory saying that you needn't have bothered - he has just knocked out Zak Chappell's middle stump with an excellent delivery.

Glos now 8, effectively 9, down if GvB is unable to bat - Jack L has just got Bethell LBW.

Yeah looked years ahead of his age. Proper talent
