So he accepts he's more suited to red ball Cricket. Hopefully the club realise this and snap up a couple more overseas for T20.

I don't see the club being prepared to pay for an overseas player not to play for a month just because he is better suited to the long form. He might not have the best stats but he has played in the IPL and played a full Big Bash season last time as I recall.

Yes, you're right he played the full season. A season with that return for us would be a failure in my opinion.

Hope to get a look at Handscomb, he might even be keeping, in the BBL on Saturday, Channel 5 televised match about 10 O'clock Saturday morning.

Tim's playing for the opposition.

Watched this today. Not fussed about his innings but i don't think Hodd's place in the championship is under threat behind the stumps.

No replacement has materialised for the clubs former captain who was unable to drop himself last season due to lack of batting options. Signing David Miller as a Kolpak if available would be a very sensible and outward looking decision.

I'm all for Miller as either a kolpak or overseas for our second player in the t20 comp but his record in first class cricket is ordinary. An average of 35.
