Any rumours regarding recruitment for next season? Or is it a bit too early? Are we likely to see a new opener and a new bowler or am I being optimistic.
Have to get another top 3 batsman. Nick Webb included it in one his reports but not sure if he knew anything. We are OK for spinners with the return of Labuschagne + Sisodiya, Salter and Taylor. With regard to seamers, at the moment we have De Lange, Smith, Carey, Walker. Assume we will resign TvdG. Then there is Hogan - probably worth another season. McIlroy has been injured but assume he will be kept. Douthwaite will remain but I am not sure of his effectivenss as a bowler and needs to improve or play as a batsman. Don't know what is happening with Wagg but think his time is over.
Therefore we potentially have 7 proper seamers + Douthwaite. Do we need another?
Someone posted that we would be signing Samit Patel. No idea if true but not sure it solves our main problems. Might be a useful stop gap. He is 35.
