As I was saying the other day, with Sidebottom, Brooks, Coad and Bresnan fit, we have some grounds for treating Plunkett and Willey as 2nd teamers. I can't quite see how Compton gets in to this game. He's played four list A games for Middlesex this season and two county championship matches in the last three weeks.
Research has just been published which, if I'm reading it right, suggests that even wolves in the wild appear to have more of a sense of fairness than Middlesex: http://www.independent.co.uk/News/scien ... 79076.html

Harry Brook must get getting fairly close to a first team debut.

But, assuming that there really are qualifying criteria of some kind, it's odd that Compton meets them. This match doesn't actually clash with any other, but surely it would have been unreasonable for either club to turn out their entire first team. If there isn't a rule against that, there ought to be.

With Voges injured, it is 100% certain Compton will be playing tomorrow for Middlesex first team. Surely there are some kind of rulings re eligibility, and if not there should be.
EDIT --
Compton is 43 off 25 balls.

Compton's not been playing regularly for Middlesex and he's out of nick, so he's playing 2nds.

In the 2nd XI trophy this season Lyth, Bairstow, Lees, Leaning, Plunkett, Willey, Hodd, Brooks and Rafiq have played for us this season as 1st XI capped players.

The better the players are that the second XI face the better.

Winning the trophy would be very nice but getting to the finals, gaining the experience against strong opposition, and preparing to make the step up is the goal.
