The Royal London One-Day Cup is back. Sunday signals the return of domestic 50-over cricket to the calendar as Somerset host defending champions, Gloucestershire, live on Sky Sports 2 from 10.55am.Who are the form men heading into the competition? Who is looking to pick up where they left off last year? And who might just take us by surprise? Here are six to watch out for... Michael Klinger Michael Klinger averaged over a hundred for Goucestershire in last years Royal London One-Day Cup An obvious choice, due to his sensational success in 2015 as Gloucestershire won the competition. Klinger was top-scorer with 531 runs across his eight matches - notching three hundreds and two fifties - at an astonishing average of 106.20. All the more astonishing as Klinger was out for a duck in the final, but Gloucestershire won regardless, beating Surrey by six runs in a thrilling finish at Lords.The 35-year-old is in the form of his life, having also hit three hundreds and averaged 81.75 for Gloucestershire in the 2015 NatWest T20 Blast, while he also has two first-class tons to his name in his first three Specsavers County Championship appearances for the Bristol-based county this summer.Chris Nash Chris Nash upstagged Chris Gayle with a century as Sussex beat Somerset in the T20 Blast Talk about being in top form, youve got to be in fairly decent nick to outshine Chris Gayle in T20 cricket, and thats just what Nash did on Gayles opening night for Somerset this season. With the Sky cameras circling, it was Nash who starred, smashing a maiden T20 ton (112no off 64 balls) in an emphatic win - Gayle managing just five.It was a knock indicative of Nashs super start to the 2016 season with Sussex. He has 523 runs, two hundreds and two fifties to his name already, at an average of 65.37. A consistent performer in white-ball cricket over the years for the seaside county, Nash struggled in 2015 with only 49 runs across his four RL One-Day Cup matches, but looks set for a resurgence this year.Brett DOliveira Brett DOliveira has impressed with the bat for Worcestershire this season Another in-form opener also makes our list, though 24-year-old DOliveira is a greater all-round threat with his ability to bowl leg-spin. Its with the willow, however, that DOliveira - grandson of the late, great Basil - has truly come of age, cracking a maiden first-class double-hundred for Worcestershire against Glamorgan earlier this year.DOliveira is also another to impress on Sky and in front of our travelling pod, smashing an unbeaten 62 off 38 balls to beat help the Rapids beat the Birmingham Bears in the T20 Blast - one of three wins in their opening three fixtures. He is one of a number of impressive youngsters at New Road - also keep an eye out for Tom Kohler-Cadmore, who hit a maiden T20 ton in the win over Durham Jets.Dan Christian Hobart Hurricanes all-rounder Dan Christian hits a six onto the roof of The Gabba in the Big Bash. How can you possibly not include a man responsible for hitting a six onto the roof of The Gabba? Sure it was in a different format, as Christian played for Hobart Hurricanes in the Big Bash over the winter, but Christian was hugely impressive when playing for Nottinghamshire in the 2015 One-Day Cup.The Australian smacked three fifties in five innings, averaging 62.75 at a strike rate of 135.67 and he was equally destructive with the ball, taking nine wickets at an average of 19.77 last year. Christian is set to wreak havoc once again with bat and ball, re-joining Notts for this years competition as well as the T20 Blast. Gareth Batty Gareth Batty celebrates as Surrey beat Essex in the opening T20 Blast fixture of the summer The evergreen Batty is well worth watching out for, mainly for his heart-on-the-sleeve captaincy for Surrey - twitching, grimacing, ranting away after most deliveries. But the 38-year old off-spinner is also still a wily performer with ball in hand, as his 7-32 in Surreys recent County Championship defeat to Somerset proved.Battys 2015 RL stats dont exactly jump off the page, but his 11 wickets across 10 games at an average of 36.36 were just two fewer than the leading spinners in the competition, Samit Patel and Scott Borthwick. Those 11 strikes as skipper very nearly saw his side lift the trophy before their heart-breaking collapse at Lords.Kyle Jarvis Kyle Jarvis has been in fine fettle for Lancashire in four-day cricket so far in 2016 Arguably the most in-form bowler in county cricket right now. In fact, the joint-most, as Jarvis shares top spot in the County Championship leading wicket-taker table with Lancashire team-mate, Neil Wagner - 28 strikes each. Jarvis has best figures of 6-70 this summer, and a match best of 11-119 made against Surrey.His average per wicket is 23.10, and while Wagner is equal to or better than Jarvis in all those categories, this will be the New Zealanders first exposure to the white ball in county cricket, so weve plumped for Jarvis, who took seven wickets in the tournament in 2015 at 26.28.Watch the Royal London One-Day Cup on Sky Sports, starting with Somerset versus Gloucestershire from 10.55am, Sunday, Sky Sports 2.

Why is he all of a sudden scoring highlight reel goals and game winners? According to Whitecaps Coach Carl Robinson there is no difference. Hes the same player he always was, only now his efforts are being rewarded. The rookie manager has made a habit of heaping praise on others when things are going well, and accepting criticism when they arent. But in the case of Hurtado, its what the coach is NOT saying that may be the secret to a superb run of form. Last year, you could almost see the Santa Clara grad thinking while he played. "Should I go here?" "Whos my man?" "Do I shoot or do I cross?" The amount of times a promising attack would fizzle out at his feet was frustrating for not just the fans, but his former manager as well. When your coach loses faith, its tough to believe in yourself. So the mantra this year for Hurtado and many of the other young studs in the Whitecaps stable is stop thinking. Just go play. For the most part, its working. Hurtado has been employed as both a lone striker, and a right sided weapon. Hes looked equally dangerous in both roles. One can only imagine what might happen when his freedom of thought becomes routine and instinctual. Compare the Real Salt Lake game a month ago, when in the late stages, last years fifth overall pick burst down the right flank and instead of unleashing one of his palm stinging drives, he squared it up for a team-mate, with coach Robinson pleading for a shot. Fromm virtually the same spot in last Saturdays game against Seattle Sounders Hurtado blasted home off the cross bar, and the Whitecaps were back on level terms only minutes after cruelly falling behind.dddddddddddd. There was no thought. There was no passing of responsibility. It was the same explosive drive the 23-year-old has unleashed hundreds of times in training, and throughout his formative years. The ball doesnt seem to run away from "E-Money" anymore either. His touch is tidier, the runs are becoming less predictable, and the end product is inherently powerful. Youd be hard pressed to find a similarly statured player with the kinds of tools Hurtado possesses. Hes been told more than once that a running back in the other type of football might have suited his skill set more. Thankfully his dad wasnt having it. Now the one time Beaverton Oregon boy gets to return to the state of his youth, as a bona fide starter, and a legitimate threat. Surely the family and friends in attendance will motivate him further, rather than distract. Carl Robinson could also have the luxury of Darren Mattocks at his disposal for the June 1st tilt at Providence Park. Mattocks will be racking up the air miles on Jamaican duty, but will still be available to face his old Akron Zips coach Caleb Porter, and best pal Darlington Nagbe. Might we see Hurtado, Mattocks and Manneh all on the park at once as some supporters had fantasized already last pre-season? Hopefully the manager can keep them all from thinking about it too much.
