There is probably room for one Max Waller at every county.

Most teams play two spinners (sometimes even 3) in T20- but only one in championship cricket. I suppose if you want to be a force in T20 cricket you don't want your 2nd spinner to be inexperienced if you can help it. So, if he is considered a good role model for the kids in the 2's, and does a good job for the first team in T20 his place on the staff is probably safe.

Funnily enough most supporters don't seem to bothered if it is the other way round (senior player plays 4 day cricket, but can't get in T20 side) Will Beer at Sussex is another one who the club seem quite happy to retain, even though his 4 day appearances are almost as rare as Waller.
