Re: Poll: Marks out of 10 for season

I have voted for 4, as Middlesex’s season contained a few moments of celebration, we would have finished level with 4th-placed Yorkshire in the County Championship were it not for Arrowgate (OK, we would have actually finished 6th due to us having one fewer win than Yorkshire and one more defeat than Hampshire, but at least we would have survived), and we were in contention to qualify for the Twenty20 knockout stages until the last round of group matches. The big disappointment was our Royal London Cup campaign, as we won only twice in eight group matches and finished above only Kent whose only win came when I attended the meeting at Canterbury, although I don’t think we put a great deal of thought into how best to approach the competition.

All in all, though, it has to go down as a disappointing season, as our targets will have been to show why we entered this season’s Championship as title holders, and for us to reach the knockout stages of at least one limited-overs competition, especially as we brought in Daniel Vettori with the remit of building on our qualification for the previous season’s Twenty20 quarter-finals. If it wasn’t disappointing enough that we were a long way from qualifying for the RLC play-offs and couldn’t get into the Twenty20 knockout stages, we ended up being relegated in the Championship.

Despite all this, I don’t feel we should beat ourselves up about our season, as the strength of division one of the Championship meant it was inevitable that at least one seemingly strong side would go down, while I would like to think our performances in the two other competitions will give us great desire to improve in those competitions in 2018.
