Let's hope (assuming Trescothick is back to full fitness) that Hurry will look to selecting candidates from our talented Second XI.

Why did you let us know so early?

AG will already be mapping out the hypotheticals, checking loan possibilities and looking at options from every angle.

Not announced on the club's website yet though it has featured on local television news bulletins.

Poor PR work IMO!

A glass half - empty or a glass half - full?
Regardless, both glasses need filling up.

Somerset are negotiating to sign Pakistan opening batsman Azhar Ali as a replacement for Matt Renshaw when he returns to Australia A duty They are also interested in middle-order batsman Asad Shafiq, if the Azhar deal dosn`t materialize.

Azhar is the highest ranked Pakistan player in the world Test batting rankings at No.15, but had a poor tour of England after previously averaging more than 40 in Test matches. Shafiq twice topped 50 on the tour, and looked an aggressive-minded No.4.

Surrey are also said to be interested after the Kohli withdrawal, and the PCB are expected to give their approval.

Yes as I understand it he will play the three 'away' Championship matches and then he is leaving us.

We've been lucky to have him, hard to imagine Bancroft would have done better. smiling smiley

Yes we all knew that, he got a suitable send off from the crowd when leaving the field after his second innings runs.
