Good effort from Douthwaite with a mixture of watchfulness and aggression at the right times. I have always seen him as a batting all rounder providing the 4th seamer option.
You've always seen him as a second team player, to be fair.
He's got the potential to be a very good #7/#8, I think. Well worthy of the new contract.
If you have read my comments I stated early on that he looked like someone who could bat properly but too often played a rash shot as he tried to be a biffer. I thought his shot selection today was excellent. The leave not so much!
His bowling is a bit erratic but can certainly fill a 4th seamer slot. His run up is a bit too angled for my liking but hopefully that will improve as well.
Yorkshire under the hammer as we reach 300 but this looks a good batting strip and it will be tough to get wickets. However the bowlers will be feeling good after their batting exploits.
