It will, most likely, all depend, on replicating the focus and intensity of that Bartlett/Abell partnership on a more regular basis - and at key moments during games.

Provided Jack isn't taken away for pointless drink carrying sessions with England (one assumes they'll still pick Mo in the XI when only one spinner as always neurotic about batting and Mo a good batting record at home), then we would seem to have the attack to keep most sides under pressure in most conditions.

It sounds like A A Donald, a fearsome fast bowler, was impressed with those he saw working off to the side of the Kent game (in addition to those that played), pointing to our having a pool of bowlers which we can rotate according to form, fitness and conditions.

Finally, one has to say a very big well done to Andy Hurry and Jason Kerr who seem to be alone, within the past 15 or so years in finding the answer to getting this side to actually start seasons properly!! Brian Rose couldn't do it (apart from one year in CC2) and Messrs Maynard and Nosworthy most certainly couldn't do it. So very well done indeed to Andy and Jason. And well done to the briefly tenured Mr Cooper for ending the Maynard reign, and installing the current regime.
