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.

Bubba Watson is already thinking about his career after golf, which just might include public office.He wants to run for mayor.Ive had a dream, Watson said. I moved back in the city limits of Pensacola (Florida) so one day I can run for mayor.The two-time Masters champion already is building quite the local enterprise at home. Last year he became a part-owner of the Pensacola Blue Wahoos, a Double A affiliate of the Cincinnati Reds. This year, he opened a candy shop in Pensacola called Bubbas Sweet Spot, serving up premium candy and ice cream.What American doesnt like chocolate? So for me, it was something fun, Watson said. That really is a kid in a candy store, like everyone talks about. We built it from scratch. That wasnt buying a shop.And he didnt stop there. His latest venture is a car dealership, Sandy and Bubbas Milton Chevrolet (he thinks the new electric car is going to be big), along with a robotics company in Pensacola that makes everything from military equipment to toys.He has invested in a few golf courses, and he is involved in an apartment complex being built in Pensacola.Its funny, I say to my friends, I say to my wife, to my manager, to my team that if you say `Bubba Watson the golfer, then youre limiting who I am, who I want to be and who I think I am, Watson said at the HSBC Champions. These other businesses are fun. Golf is fun. The golf is great. But there are other things I want to do. I have other dreams. Golf made it possible. Luckily for me, havent had bank loans. Im able to pay cash for these things.Watson, who defends his title next week in the Hero World Challenge in the Bahamas, has 10 victories worldwide, and his PGA Tour earnings alone top $35 million. Its more than he imagined when he first reached the PGA Tour in 2006.But at 38, with two children, hes approaching a stage in is life when hes starting to think.He has lived in Orlando, Florida, and Scottsdale, Arizona, and North Carolina. He still keeps a home at The Greenbrier in West Virginia. But his future is near his birthplace of Bagdad in the Florida Panhandle, and he wanted to be sure to live in Pensacola to possibly run for mayor someday.To be back home ... my mom works in the candy shop, he said. The excitement around these businesses, the city of Pensacola realizes I love them. They brought me everything I have now. They took time to sponsor sporting events that I participated in. Thats the same thing Im doing. Im trying to help the community grow.So what would he do as mayor? Given a chance for some humor, Watson turned serious.The first thing you do is some form of education, he said. We talk inner city. Its where the most growth can happen, no matter what background you are. But it all starts with education.---INAUGURATION PLANS: Jim Herman will be going places he has never been in January. By winning the Shell Houston Open, he gets to start his year at Kapalua for the Tournament of Champions.

Once he was told that he would be playing with the boss -- Donald Trump -- Herman made a quick impression. Trump told him he was good enough to play the tour, and he helped financially back Herman, who eventually made it to the big leagues, and last year won his first PGA Tour event.Trump came to watch him in the FedEx Cup playoffs in 2015, not long after he announnced his candidacy.ddddddddddddAnd now hes the president-elect.Herman said he hasnt had a chance to talk to Trump yet. Trump will be at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida for Thanksgiving.Hopefully, Ill be able to see him there, get a round in, Herman said. But his schedule is going to be pretty busy. I hope to get a word in with him and congratulate him. Its a pretty amazing run for him.---ERNIE AND ZAC: Ernie Els is thinking about signing up for the team event at the Zurich Classic, and he knew exactly whom to ask.Zac Blair.Never mind that they are separated by 21 years in age and 60 victories. Blair loves golf architecture and often will go to the classic courses to play during tournaments or his weeks off tour. Els designs golf courses and has taken a liking to the 26-year-old from Utah.You know what I like about Zac? Hes a freakin architect, Els said. We can talk architecture. He loves that. I love that, too.Blair said Els approached him about the team event, and hed love nothing better than to play New Orleans with the Big Easy.Wed have four majors between us, Blair said.
