Dear Agod,

Whilst not yet impossible, as it is now looking somewhat unlikely that Jamie is going to end up as Somerset's highest red ball championship wicket taker i will be most happy to stick to our little wager.

Never one not to stick to my word I will be very happy to meet up with you next week at Trent Bridge to complete the transaction.....

I thought that the bet was for highest T20 wicket-taker.

I have to work, WSM, so shan't be going to watch a dead rubber in Nottingham.

So, you can either make a bank transfer...

...Or, should you wish, we can roll the bet over to next year, with the same bet again, should you continue to have such faith in your 'bestie.'

Hardly a dead rubber, we still need six points to make sure of second place.

Charity of choice would be a magnanimous

I am quite happy either way Agod.

Very happy to roll it over to next season, clearly test call ups may well hamper me but i'll take the risk.

Or a donation to a charity of your chosing i'd also be most happy to make.

Your call.....

One assumes AGOD you won't be posting every minute on the Notts game as you will be at work (Tic)

On a review of sccc 2018 red ball stats i may have been a little hasty!

Lewis 32
Josh 31
Craig 30
Jack 29
Jamie 25
Tim 21

With Lewis very likely on rest still it's game on still if trent bridge is seamer friendly!

With Jamie having only played 7 matches if only we had picked the proper team at home v Notts back in June & then Guildford (where we picked 2 spinners and hardly used them) i'd have this sewn up aleady.....

25 not bad seeing wicket 1 of the season came on July 23rd.

Runs top 3 for information read

James 952
Tom 841
Steve 701

I for one am more pleased to see his progress than anything else this year. He has become a real asset.

Best red ball strike rate of the main bowlers of 40.9. 26 wickets. (Despite never being given the new ball) and not bowling a red ball in the VERY bowler friendly months of April & May.

Also his first wicket of the season coming day 2 of the Worcester away match at the end of July.

24 wickets in the T20 making him the 3rd highest wicket taker in the competition.

A season total of 52 wicket from 29 matches.
Craig 52 from 20 (only featured in 2 T20s)
Lewis 61 wickets from 33 but had the new ball every time he bowled and bowled in April & May!

Mentioned by several journalists as being in contention for the winter test squad and now off to UAE for a well deserved Lions tour call up.

Great stuff Jamie, just a matter of time now until that test call up comes.....

"I feel like when I am at my best I'm probably one of the best bowlers in the world.”

Isn’t that what wsm fan was telling us all last season?

Jamie has obviously had injury problems, but in between bouts on the physio table, his record over the last 4 seasons is consistently really good. This is in the championship only:

414 overs - 91 maidens - 1428 runs - 60 wickets at an average of 23.8, RPO 3.45 S/R 41.4
