Yep. From memory he had two good innings at Durham- one in his first or second game and another one in one of his last games. In between he was hopeless.

Back from the forum. No great revelations.
Cameron Steel was there , should be fit for the next match and maybe would have fielded this afternoon but thought a fully fit third man was a better option in the run chase. Nigel diagnosed the tissue damage injury :facepalm
According to Lewis Colly should be back next week and that's why they went for Steel as skipper - give him a chance in a one off game.

Salisbury's registration is somehow between Hampshire & MCC. He was offered a full season loan but turned it doen because he wasn't sure he'd get regular of first team cricket. Lewis implied he would now be happy to sign an extension to the 1 month loan.

They approached Coetzer before the RL50 but couldn't reach an agreement as he'd have missed some games. Lewis said they may have another discussion before the T20 starts but I got the impression he wasn't too keen.

Derbyshire signed MacLeod several weeks ago and just announced it today.

Weighell should be bowling again in the next week or two but I think Lewis said Potts has a stress fracture of the back ( couldn't quite hear exactly what he said.)

Steel said he'd been to a meeting with Collt about the 100 ball competition and left " none the wiser" Lewis also said he thinks it's a bad idea. If it goes ahead however there's going to be a loan system in place to compensate for any players lost to the franchises - Steel said something sarcastic about signing 5 players from Surrey on loan.

Lewis had a dig at FTECB saying the club had complained about the Glamorgan compensation and that he was sick of talking about Graves. Emmerson then said George Dobell will be ok because you can't be guilty of libel for telling the truth. Marty also seemed to say FTECB's lawyers have been after legsidelizzy over her Times articles.

I thought Lewis had a dig at Sir Ian saying that "some idiot" predicted to him that FTECB sanctions would only penalise us for a year - unless he was referring to Graves again!

Forgot to add that Lewis said Stokes will almost certainly play some T20 games for us before the India test series.

Thanks. I don't think he mentioned Carse but said some of the players involved in the second team T20 games today would feature in the T20 blast.

Plunkett leaving Yorkshire at the end of the season as they're not going to offer a new deal.

Sort of disappointing. But he barely plays for Yorks.

he can be very grateful to Yorks, who pretty much rebuilt his career. He might end up at Sussex now that Gillespie is head coach

They haven't offered a new deal yet and the inference is they won't but perhaps the door is not closed.

Heard from a reliable source that Pudsey's future is in America where he is already involved in cricket development. He's virtually a white ball specialist now and with IPL and ODI involvement I can see why Yorkies aren't interested in keeping him. Given his immense natural ability he certainly hasn't maximized his talent. Far better batsman than a tail end hitter, for example.

why isn't Gentle Ben involved in the ODI series?

He was in Dobbies buying plants this afternoon, so I'm assuming he isn't planning to participate
