As far as Donald goes, if he was unhappy the best for everyone is to move on. I suspect the change of coach will have a positive impact on most players' state of mind. If it had come earlier the question of whether Donald might have stayed and been successful will never be answered. The premise for him is the same wherever he plays- hit the red thing being thrown at you, ideally along the ground.

Interestingly he is playing in the same team as Selman in Queensland this winter.

Connor Brown scoring runs quite consistently for UNSW 2nds - blocked from getting in their 1st XI as they already have Harry Brook as an overseas who is doing well. Marchant De Lange just seems to have had a T20 contract in S Africa so has not played first class cricket since Dec 9th.

Not sure what Salter is doing in New Zealand. I think the only other player away at the moment is Smith who is training in South Africa. Good to see him getting some competitive cricket over the winter with Scotland.

Perhaps even more interestingly, Selman has outscored Donald in the first grade competition. Donald has been opening, Selman batting at 3.

------------------Selman------Donald
Played---------13-------------12
Runs-----------451------------370
Average-------41-------------30.83
Top Score-----80*------------59
The recent games have been T20s in which Donald opens and Selman bats 3. In the 2 day games Selman opens and Donald bats 3. I am not sure that either of them played in any of the 50 over matches.

In the longer format Selkman has 132 runs @ 26.4 and Donald has 194 runs @ 48.5. Averages in T20 don't mean much.

Very true. Somewhat less encouraging...

I think we can forget Marsh until July now.
Yeah! Could do with a string of ducks! :)

Interesting to see Franklin appointed as Durham coach having just retired from playing. Not sure what experience he has in a coaching role to be named as head coach. Will be interesting to see how he goes.

Came out yesterday that Sam Pearce is going on a pre season tour with Warwickshire. Has been part of the Glamorgan Academy and regular for Walers Minor Counties and Glamorgan 2nds. Appears that someone at Warwickshire has seen some potential.
