Lancs 2018 Season

Hi all,

I'm writing an article on Lancashire 2018 campaign and was keen to get your thoughts.

This time last year, several media outlets were predicting that Lancs would win the County Championship in 2018. As we know, the complete opposite happened and the team suffered relegation. So, I’m trying to find out exactly what happened last year - why did the pre-season favourites fail so spectacularly?

Thanks,
Tom

I think the majority of members always thought the Championship would be a struggle expecting Hameed & Jennings (who is only rated as a 2nd Div player) to be missing, the rest of the batting had been playing above the expected for a while, Chandrapaul finally hit the buffers. The bowling has been found wanting for a while, Keedy has never been adequately replaced and the quick dept needs an edge, Tom Smith was also sorely missed but never mind we can field a full side of Keepers and Spinners!

selection appeared a bit dogmatic to begin with then scatter gun at the end. Bizarre signings as you say which ended with a possible credible complete side of spinners and keepers from within the squad.
