We are playing Somerset with a good bowling attack you would swear it was the footballing equivalent of Newport County v Liverpool. We have a more than experienced team who yet again have failed with the bat. Hardly surprising when the man who should be motivating you is heaping praise on your opponents. Is it me or have I got it wrong. If the side picked can't perform should we not blood a few younger players?Our failure with the bat is disappointing, but I can't say that I am too surprised.

On a similar issue Ireland beat the world champions who have better players fro one to eleven. Somebody is motivating the side but we seem to have the excuses up our sleeves before a ball is bowled. There are countless new names stepping up to the mark for other counties so why are they succeeding and we are not?Can't agree with you there. Maynard could have made any number of positive comments and we still would not have saved the game on the last day.
We cannot accept this .

Whilst thinking of Welsh batsmen, Aneurin Donald not in the Hants team for the first two games, injured or not picked ?
