But if we do have any money what part of the squad should we be looking to strengthen?
Have we signed Tom Smith yet? Spin is definitely an area where we need to improve but whether Smith is a good 4 day player is up for debate. Better than the other options so an improvement in that respect - and given the lack of decent spinnerrs in county cricket possibly the best option available to us.
Possibly a decent senior fast bowler but that seems unlikely.
I guess going forward two players who are of vital importance are Will Gidman and Gareth Roderick. Gidman good enough basically to be a top 6 batsman and a front line bowler. Roderick a top order batsman and wicketkeeper. It gives the team so many options. Be interesting to see if Roderick struggles next year after this first excellent year and whether he can continue physically batting at 3 and keeping. It sounded from the internet commentary/ecb higlights like he took some excellent catches but was also a little untidy at times.
Anybody have any thoughts about where we should be trying to improve for next year?
