Hugh Morris confirms that we'll be signing a replacement for Marsh for the early part of the season, as well as a t20 overseas player. Nothing else.
Never known a team to do well in the County Championship with only one opening batsman in their squad. Bottom 3 and another season of being 30-2 more often than not on the cards!
It seems likely that Marsh is going to have very limited availability throughout the summer. I think we effectively have no overseas player at the moment and will be picking up the scraps. It also seems likely that Brown and Carlson are going to be unavailable for a number of early season games so the batting will be:
I'm sorry to say it but that's a bottom of the table batting line up.
It seems that the club hierarchy have given up on 4 day cricket. From the start of 2017, we have lost Bragg and Ingram, we now have 2 doing university exams, and limited availability for Marsh, Rudolph's replacement.
It's all about t20 now, still as long as we get one of the 8 franchise teams (Leeks or Dragons anyone?) then no doubt the club will be delighted.
