The draw against Gloucestershire is going to prove costly.

Comment by vern1970

Imagine if we’d taken that last wicket v Gloucestershire…

Still, it’s in our hands. Hopefully we can get the job done.

No Abbas. Wonder who comes in. Barker on the new ball and then Currie in? Strengthens the batting nicely.

Comment by Tom Johnson

Also, no Organ, Currie or Crane in the 2nd XI t20 today. Exclusively red ball training for this week I wonder? Steel played though.

Comment by Tom Johnson

Thanks Tom. I think if Currie replaces Abbas they still have the matter of five seamers including Holland. Nobody needs five seamers. I’m always hopeful they might play Crane but I fear he has become a white ball specialist now.

PS 2nd XI tied. Ryan Stevenson run out from the final ball, going back for a second which would have won it. Tom Prest failed with the bat but interesting that he opened the bowling. He’s obviously a bit handy.

I always thought of Ian Holland as a bowling all-rounder until this season. Now he sits proudly at the top of our batting averages after opening in every game. On the other hand, he has not bowled much, and maybe James Vince is not counting on him as a bowler?

Comment by Ian Laidlaw

Me too Ian – and his batting has been impressive, but last year he was our leading wicket-taker. Right now he’s filling a Jimmy Gray role for those who remember – but I hope he doesn’t lose the bowling, it’s very useful.
