Except, I don't think they are thinking that way in the Championship. With the start we have had & three going up, I think we will continue to see flatbeds and an attempt to try and draw our way to the top flight.

It is a less balanced side if you select a batsman in place of a bowler. If Cooke comes in as a batsman then you should drop a batsman. I have no problem with that if Cooke is deemed a better batsman than Lloyd or Hemphrey but if you leave out Hemphrey you need someone to open.

We'll need to win another two games to go up. Five draws won't do it.

Which is exactly what we would be doing. Right from the first game this season we have played 6 batsmen plus a keeper. The only reason we didn't in the last game is because Hemphrey was unavailable.

Cooke would be taking the 6th batsman's place ahead of Carlson/Lawlor/Morris etc.

Whoops. I meant Morgan, of course.

You are correct. So Cooke for Douthwaite.
