Who said the club refused him a red ball contract AGod, your inside knowledge is remarkable,
more like your assumption. But certainly not what I was given to understand.

I think you will find his availability is down to his position at his college.

Roger. Facts & balance are not welcome on here.
Speculation & agendas against certain people far more the way to go.....

Are you sure, WSM?

Josh signed a 2 year deal in September 2015- which takes him up to now.

Don't recall any announcement of him signing a one year extension at any stage.

That is my understanding yes.
All players are now either released or under contract into next season

Johann could not have accepted a CC contract as he has accepted a full time employment contract with his other employer. So the 'rejection' of a red ball contract was never really an option. Allowing leave to cover the white ball bits is one thing but leave for the rest means part time status for JM's main future job.

Press Release related to Johann Myburgh

"Johann Myburgh has become the latest Somerset player to put pen to paper on a new deal.

The 36 year old has signed a contract which will keep him at the Cooper Associates County Ground for all white-ball cricket next season. This means that he will be available for both the NatWest T20 Blast and the Royal London One-Day Cup competitions in 2018.

Johann once again impressed in limited overs cricket in 2017 scoring 290 runs at an average of 36.25 with a strike rate of 171.60 in the NatWest T20 Blast. His Royal London One-Day Cup statistics are equally impressive and his three appearances in the competition this year saw him amass 120 runs at an average of 40 with a strike rate of 193.55.

After signing his new deal Johann said: “I’m very pleased and I feel blessed that I’m going to play for Somerset for another year. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my time here so far and I’ve had great support from the fans.

“I’m keen to contribute to the team again and I’m desperate to win a trophy. I think we’re good enough to do that because we have a really talented group of players in the dressing room.”

Somerset CEO Lee Cooper said: “We are delighted to have retained Johann’s services for another year. He is an exceptional player, as demonstrated during this season, and we’re extremely pleased that he will be representing us again in white ball cricket in 2018."

Sorry, WSM, but so far as this season was concerned there's zero reason to believe that Mybs didn't want to be picked for red ball, given that he said on Beeb radio commentary of Surrey at home that 'I'm very much hoping to force my way into the red ball side for the rest of the season.'

He would have to be rather machiavellian to have told MM he didn't want to play red ball this season and then to have gone on the radio and said the opposite, would he not?

You stick to your theory thats fine.
His other job has been mentioned several times &his lack of red ball second team games dont tally with wanting or being able to play red ball too.
Anyway its rather irrelevant now.
We are crystal clear for 2018 he has a white ball only contract.
My only interest for the next 10 days is the 2 elevens we feild at Oval & HQ......

Whatever or whoever has or has not been 'Machiavellian' is pretty irrelevant.

However badly behaved you believe MM has been to poor old Johann and whether your little insights into areas of their personalities you can have no knowledge of are close to what happened or not are also irrelevant.

The situation is as WSM and the press release outlines it. Johann seems happy with the prospect and most of us are happy with it as well.

I'd suggest you leave it but you won't, so.... enjoy your irrelevant musings on a situation you can never know the real truth of while the rest of us look at the important bits of the end of this year in the hope it will provide opportunities for players staying to do better next season.
