I mentioned this earlier, but to expand a little, Jack had a good half hour net during the lunch break. Gale, Moxon and Fisher wanging it in with dog throwers - Gale started off by bowling a series of lethal bouncers - not really what Leaning needed, but found his range after a while. Patto provided the "proper" bowling.

Leaning was very keen to have the net, and I heard him saying something like - we can get another five minute in - as the lunch break neared its end. Moxon, and to a lesser extent Gale, were providing hints and tips. Leaning was listening, asking questions, seeking reassurance. I got the feeling that the issue they were working/advising on was keeping shape, head into the ball, and not closing the face. At one point Leaning I think asked for reassurance that his bat was coming down in a straight line.

Scarborough offers us the chance to see this up close - rather than behind closed doors. It was a reminder that players badly want to play for the club, and for the first team - and, if Leaning is anything to go by, are very keen to understand why they are struggling and try to put it right.

This is pleasing to hear about on a day when our top order batting appears to be exposed for all its frailties.

Jack is still someone to not write off and has potential but I hoped his ton in the roses match had cemented his spot but he is now behind Brook and TKC in the pecking order despite runs for the 2s.

Looks like he will be back in against Essex regardless as Brook is captaining the U19s in the ODI series vs India.

I think it may be time to have one of those "conversations" with England, where we point out that a spell in the first division would be more useful to the player himself. There are precedents. As I said elsewhere, I hope someone at the club has such things on file.

He's currently having a spell in the first divsion. So why can't he have the best of both?

He was already part of the U19 set up.

I think Harry Brook is very talented, but even he can't be in two places at once.

Well there are four other players not selected by England for the very reason they have decided to let them play county cricket for their first teams as it's better for their development.

Sam Curran, Pope (who will be practicing his catching) Rawlins and our own Matt Fisher have been left to play county cricket.

So another of our players England want in order to get experience of captaining v international sides.....

The management still have to make a decision as to whether to approach the ECB to be allowed to keep him for the moment. I seem to recall similar conversations in past years. Wasn't Jonny Bairstow exempted from England U19 duty at one point?
