Anything by Carter the Unstoppable Bowling (sic) Machine?

Comment by James

If we are talking Carter then it has to be: Do Re Me, So Far So Good

Comment by Ian Pearce

You’re going well guys! Here’s a piece on Wheater. I have a feeling (but absolutely no evidence) that he’s getting ready to depart, because I can’t see them dropping McManus ….

I’ve been looking round the counties to see where there may a keeper vacancy. Surrey could play a team of keepers so not there, Sussex have Brown, Kent Billings, Lancashire Buttler although he may be injured as Croft is keeping in the current game, Yorks Bairstow & Hodd, Middlesex Simpson, Durham Richardson, Warcs Ambrose, Gloucs Mustard, Somerset Ryan Davies who came as first choice and so with the others.. Essex presumably are out however Nottinghamshire have Read who is now 38 maybe a possibility.
The members gave Wheats a great ovation on his return to the pavilion after his century.

Comment by Paul

“Great ovation”? …….. more like Polite applause!

Comment by John West

Ambrose has been struggling with injury for a few years and may not last much longer and the ECB may well continue to limit Buttler’s appearances for Lancashire (which is probably a blessing when it comes to their keeping).

Wheats might do better to concentrate on his batting in my opinion as it doesn’t look as though he will be anything better than an average keeper.

Comment by James

Just because a county has a wicketkeeper in possession of the gloves this doesn’t mean that a particular county won’t be looking to bring another keeper as we saw in 2012-13

Comment by Ian

Wheats is a ‘Southern man’ so may not want to shift north

Comment by Paul

Agreed James

Comment by Paul

I have read the piece. “Headless chicken” he might be, “running around” he is not!

Comment by John West

I’m not convinced McManus is a better keeper, and is certainly not more profilic with the bat.
Wheats can turn games with his batting and currently there are few in the Hampshire team who we can say that about.

Comment by Paul

It’ll be High Noon after the season’s end ‘for all we know’ so ‘don’t let it bring you down.’

Comment by Paul

Win today and I’ll be on ‘Top of the world’

Comment by Paul

If we win today the players could celebrate by going for a curry That would make it Ruby Tuesday

Comment by Mike peaker

True Ian however looking at those keepers are the counties likely to bring Wheats in?

Comment by Paul

It seems unlikely that any would but none of us can really know.

Comment by Ian

A six-for and star land being vocal.

Some afternoon delight.

Comment by StephenFH

I really hope that Adam Wheater stays, gloves or no gloves. At the moment, in my view, he is being used as a batsman so that Lewis can get in the team. I am a great advocate for Lewis & it sounds like he took a couple of brilliant catches today. He probably can’t get in the team purely as a batsman so if Adam is a team man he will understand the need to be without the gloves while Lewis is given experience. Tom Alsop was also a very keen keeper & had to be persuaded to give up the gloves to concentrate on becoming a batsman. We’ve all seen the progress he has made recently. I hope Adam’s pride doesn’t get in the way of him making any decisions on his future.
