Tom Abell's form even in the Second XI is very worrying, and as it has been identified that he is suffering from the effects of some unwise coaching whilst in Australia this past Winter, I feel that it would be very unwise (both for his sake as well as for the club's) to select him immediately for the Firsts.

If those at the club should realise this, and I very much doubt that they will, they should not try to explain his absence being as the result of a 'mystery injury'. I would rather they were honest enough to say that he is in need of needing to work on his game in order to get it back to where it should be.

If so, Trego for stand in captain.
