Let’s look for positives

I know we are bottom of the league and I am trying not to be too depressed about this. This thread is trying, even if tongue in cheek, looking at positives with our current plight.

I’ll go first. At least, unless the ECB introduces relegation, we can’t get any lower.

At least we won't be losing TRJ or Finn to England for The Ashes.

Looking at the positives-

Derbyshire have refused our request to take Alex Hughes on loan to strengthen our batting.

Chris Adams is still available.

We're closer to third than Notts are to 7th.

Ollie's getting plenty of bowling practice at Kent if we need to recall him.

The football season starts soon, when by October I will look forward to the start of the cricket season.

I can only see two negatives - but two negatives make a positive.

Bad news sells, Kev.

It always has.

If we stay in Division 2, we won't have to listen to Don Topley commentating against Essex.

If you turn the table upside down we are top.

With all this doom and gloom, and talk of a crisis. Realistically we only really have a couple of problems,
We don't score enough runs and we don't take enough wickets

Think the batting of Dawid Malan must be a positive - about the only player we have who would walk into a decent team.

John Simpson got a ton, the batsmen at least showed some fight, and we didn't have a single duck in our innings. In fact all the main batsmen got a start, and just by the law of averages, eventually they should turn these into big scores. Souter took wickets, TRJ bowled well, and we did all this without Murts.

Blimey, I'm starting to look forward to our next game.

What about the fielding? That's not exactly top-notch either

Hmmm..... Sure, why not. Add it to the list.

Most of Berkshire first XI getting plenty of game time and experience playing in our second XI

Another positive-

No-one in good enough form to be selected for England Lions game against Australia A starting on the 14th July.
