Three changes - Curran, Rossington and Gleeson replacing Duckett, Crook and Kleinveldt.
Seems odd not to use your fastest bowler, but ignoring one particular bowler seems to be a common feature of Wakely's captaincy these days.
Yes, we saw Wakely's habit of overlooking a bowler last week in the Middx second innings, during the Holden-Harris recovery, when Crook was not required by him to bowl a single over... it still might not have changed the result, but he was probably worth a go in the prevailing circumstances!
The rumours at the ground were that RK was playing his last match for the County, so who knows?? Overall, a good performance in the field, and David Ripley will no doubt say he would have settled for 129 all out at the start of play, despite the partial 7th wicket recovery. Credit to Procter, though, for his efforts.
Dare I say it, so far so good with the bat, although I still can't help thinking about last week!
