And Glenn McGrath dismissed for 2 just 98 runs short of his century.

Few things that I noted:

They've been in contact with Williamson for a while. Sounds like the negotiations were around length of his stint. Yorkshire wanted him for as long as possible but he needs a break etc. They are in contact with another international batsman to top and tail Williamson's spell. They needed to sort out the contract with Kane first, now that is done they hope to make a further announcement in a week or so.

They thought supporters were right to be unhappy about performances last season. Some in the championship were "embarrassing to be honest". Again there were hints at complacency in the squad.

Yorkshire & Surrey are the two sides that are close to the salary cap, although Surrey's is higher due to London weighting. This, along with a few other comments about commitment to bringing academy players though, made it sound very unlikely that we will be making further signings.

They don't have a 100% firm view on batting line-up for next year. That depends on overseas player being finalised, Ballance getting back into England side or not, who finds form in pre-season. This sounded like a message for the players to me.

Thanks Kenny. I’d be interested to know the reaction of posters who are generally critical of the management. That all sounds pretty sensible to me. What do others feel?

The salary cap issue puts the 'why aren't we signing loads of players' arguments to bed!

Makes you wonder why they are close to salary cap when England are paying a good number of the the players?

Sidebottom off the books too.

I think they were shrewd with the Kane announcement. Deflected alot of attention for the radio show.

Only Root and Ballance are "off the books", Plunkett Rashid and Willey who I think all have incremental contracts, are paid by the county - the England money is in effect a bonus. This is what the PCA site says:

"With England Increment Contracts, the County continues to pay the player’s salary, with ECB paying the player an incremental salary. The County receives compensation from the ECB for matches missed while on England duty."

But an impact of having five players regularly in the England set up is that a larger squad is needed, which leads to an increased wage bill.

With the salary cap issues I wonder if that means a 2nd overseas for the t20 is unlikely

I forgot about it but listened to it on iplayer a bit later.

Nothing too searching in the questioning but I thought they handled it well as a team and nobody tried to stand on anyone else's toes when it came to fielding questions on the different areas of responsibility.

They didn't try to defend the indefensible when speaking of some of the performances last year, and like most of the rest of us are hoping for an improvement in 2018.

I must admit to quite liking all three of them so I'm sure others will have differing views.
