Birmingham is bright and sunny and there should be a cracking atmosphere today.  

Hants play in the second T20 semi at 2.30pm. Just the small matter of getting past Notts, the best team in the competition....

I warmed up for today's 12 hours of drinking with 8 beers and 3 gins last night.  It's all about preparation 😊

So 9pm kick of for me. Work will have finished for the day and I will be in my pit, TV showing motor racing and PC showing the live updates from the cricket. I will be dreading the telephone ringing for an emergency call out because the production dept have broken something.

 I am in the middle of the Hollies stand with plenty of fancy dress bonkers around me.  I don't need to compete with them, sorry LITSL.  

But I am trialling a new app which allows Edgbaston to take pics of me / my area of the stand, so as it gets madder later and I will share what they send me 😀

 Bowling very well too.  Glamorgan five down from 9 overs.

Currently 76-5 at halfway point.

I think KRG was after a pic of you, not one of Bletch. That said, I've rarely seen him looking better.
