Agree with WSM fan the management will persevere with Tom for a while yet otherwise their decision to give him the captaincy in the first place will be questioned. For what it's worth I think his captaincy has been fine so far. To question him 2 games in is ridiculous. Of course he needs runs asap, but as do most of our top order in Championship excluding Elgar. Second innings batting in both championship matches is what has cost us. More application and discipline required by all the batters if we are to improve on our poor start.

Unfortunately, too many jump on the bandwagon and expect instant results a bit like the current football fan. Let's reassess after next 4 championship games. Nothing will please me more than Tom hitting a ton on Friday to silence the doubters!
