Well,unfortunately, Gl, when he was in the team, earlier this season, Peter had a bowling average in three figures.

Last year he was superb with the bat so his diminished bowling role didn't really matter. But this year a batting average of about 20 and a bowling average in three figures were not cutting the mustard.

Still, there's no point Peter playing in the seconds at all, unless Mr Maynard is going to pay attention to his performances.

Perhaps, Matthew has sent him to the seconds specifically with instructions to work on getting back to it as a bowler?

It would be nice to think that were the case. And if he's bowling well in the seconds then he ought to be a strong candidate to return instead of Mr Allenby, given that he is probably a much better bet to make runs.

To judge from the scorecard, it would seem that conditions may have been loaded in favour of the bowling side this morning. But Hants have made a much better start to the follow-on so further wickets may press Peter's case more effectively.
