17.09.2016… Surrey v Warks…

Surrey v Warwickshire

Lord’s… Saturday September 17th

Warwickshire won by 8 wickets

Ticket: £60Programme: £6

A comprehensive win for Warwickshire in the Royal London Cup Final at Lord’s…

Not a great game by any stretch of the imagination. Surrey set Warwickshire a very small total, Jonathan Trott in all likelihood could have chased it down by himself. The desired outcome though, so no complaints…

And Lord’s? Well I have to say that I’m not a big fan. It had the feel of a particularly wealthy independent school, or possibly a cricketing amusement park. Anyway, whatever it is, it’s not a patch on Edgbaston…
