What they could do with is somebody who can actually bat and somebody who can bowl faster than 130kmh and get out on the field to do so on a regular basis.So a new captain, new management etc etc. Continuity is important so Langer is available, I would select 30 players for the squad, trim it down to 18. To achieve a collective attitude fielding would be my priority and hone the skills of the squad. Also a young squad with flexible skills. All rounders and team ethics a must
You might like this on Root’s captaincy in the Observer today…There’s a certain irony in the fact that Jimmy & Broad have better fitness records than Mark Wood. Or Olly Stone. Or Jofra Archer.
It was a expletive deleted stupid decision not to take them.
I’ve bleated for 3+ years that Root is a rubbish captain. A poor man’s Michael Clarke. He has seriously damaged his legacy & do the decent & resign post Test. If there was a repeat miracl of Headingley, it makes no difference: he is not up to the role of captaincy.
In the name of Brearley, Go.
Don’t recall anyone winning the County Championship before the first match was finished…We are top the league, we are......etc etc.
In life, there are few more satisfying events than HCCC thrashing/humiliating S*merset.
