I think it is somewhat insulting to Larry "Enfield cricketer weds" Gomes in the same sentence as Cartwright as he played successfully for the county for a good few years. OK, I don't think we saw him as Test player but there was a lot of competition.

Philander was young and a short term signing and didn't pull up trees. In that respect he is a closer comparison but Cartwright is not young - he is 26 - and should have been showing more than glimpses of potential. I wish him well in his future career but I would prefer that it is not with Middlesex.

I still cannot get my head round the inconsistency of saying you are going to bring youth through and then letting a short term Zimbabwe-born Aussie occupy a place despite having done not a lot to justify it. Oh, apart from giving the team balance but he had to make a reasonable amount of runs to justify that billing.
