As for us, we may find ourselves in that situation as soon as next season if we don't turn this shambolic first innings in this match around.

Second division teams are mainly just feeders for the first division clubs, I'm afraid.

Well in this case Durham aren't prepared to keep him by the look of it.

He'll go to the Oval, almost inevitably (Borthwick will go back to Durham as homesick, I have heard).

That's unless he, too, fears homesickness, in which case he'll probably take the offer that Notts will make (I doubt Yorkshire will make an offer). Yeah, I know Nottingham is nowhere near CLS, but it would be the best he could do, really, if no offer from Yorks.

All just goes to show - again - though how vital beating Middx truly is. Every chance that we would lose valuable players to CC1 predators if we go down. Players with ambitions to play at a higher level do not want to operate in the wasteland of Div Two, where neither runs nor wickets are considered serious currency.

If we lose key bowlers, our utterly inept batting group will be to blame. If only we operated some sort of performance related pay scheme in which we could deduct money from the pay-packets of the batsmen and could re-allocate said salary to our bowlers as an incentive to stay for at least one season of CC2 stuff.

I don't think CC2 is Durham's only problem - they don't have any money to offer the players. I think it unlikely we would lose anyone if we had a year in Div Two - longer term may be an issue, but probably not straight away.

He's a super white ball bowler.

Awful fielder mind - Tufnell standard.

One of the stories doing the rounds in the wake of the disgraceful performance and result with which Yorkshire ended their season, is that Alex Lees has allegedly had a huge falling out with Andrew Gale (their HC).

So, IF the story has any legs then, unless Gale gets fired (and he must be a strong candidate to be axed) then one wonders whether Lees might become available.

With an average, thus far, of 36 in a young career I'm sure he would have takers on the market, were that to happen. And for a team in clear need of top three reinforcement, then I think that we would have to be interested.

Congratulations AGod. Alex Lees is by my reckoning the 249th. name you have suggested this season as a possible future signing for Somerset.

One more for No. 250, when you will be due a standing ovation.

Wouldn't we need most of them if we sacked everyone you want to get rid of Tom?
