Lloyd, Root, Wagg and Carey all deserve some praise.
Some mindless batting though from Carlson, Cooke, de Lange etc.
Thanks must go to Donald for dropping a catch.
The commentators yesterday (probably Kevan James and Alan Butcher) were discussing this. Basically they said that playing in a losing side can just beat you up and that's probably what has happened to a lot of our youngsters.Bubbles wrote: ↑Sat Apr 20, 2019 8:38 amIt's quite easy when we are on a slippery slope to look for quick fixes. I feel that although more youngsters are coming through than even before the quality does not seem to be there. Are these youngsters not driven enough or quite happy just to play? I have mentioned earlier that there are 39 county boards run by ECB. Should we be targeting counties that do not have a professional team eg Herefordshire, Shropshire to name two that are on our doorstep and target perhaps 15 year olds with some form of contract. A full time scout should be funded to do this job and hopefully unearth some raw talent . I note that Tom Banton of Somerset who is 20 scored a century yesterday which should have our youngsters taking note and wanting to do the same. How much of it is mindset?
