From Hampshire today – one more possible ‘quickie’

“Hampshire seamer, Ryan Stevenson, returned to bowling for the first time last week following an injury suffered at the start of last season, and after spending significant time rehabilitating this winter, he has his sights set on a return to begin the 2017 campaign. The right-armer, who joined the club in 2015 after performing well at minor counties level, was restricted to just one T20 and three 50-over fixtures in 2016 as a result of a stress fracture at the base of his back. However with the 2017 season just around the corner, Stevenson feels his recovery and training are going well and is excited about what the coming year could bring with his pre-season preparations now building”.

Pick a Championship XI from these 18:

8 batsmen: Adams, Alsop, Carberry, Smith, Rousow, Vince, Bailey, Ervine

6 pacemen: Topley, Edwards, Wheal, Abbott, Stevenson, Wood,

2 allrounders: Dawson, Berg

1 spinner: Crane

1 wicketkeeper: McManus

Then explain why not to seven of them, and don’t worry about Weatherley, Taylor etc.

Mind you, we could copy the top football teams and field the reserves in the Cup

With the injury problems we have had for the last couple of seasons we probably still haven’t got enough players! (Especially once the ECB tell us we aren’t allowed to play anyone who is remotely close to an England place).
