Adil Rashid five-fer against Durham

Is that right? Do you change the spelling to 'fer' when you use that phrase? We should standardise this as soon as possible or we'll have a repeat of that embarrassing time when we spelt 'Sourav' as 'Saurav' for about six months.

Adil Rashid's living up to his One To Watch billing thus far. He'll need to do more to justify his 'tip' status however. A tip is three or four better than being One To Watch. Possibly even five better.

Round one of the County Championship brought Adil Rashid scores of 86 and 19 and 4-105 and 3-64 against Surrey. Yesterday, he took 5-88 against Durham.

This is particularly encouraging being as it's early season and Adil's a leg-spinner. Normally early season wickets are the preserve of innocuosos like James Kirtley - fast-medium bowlers who stick to the basics.

I usually say, "no, I didn't get any wickets today mum."
