I had a pleasant conversation with a Lancashire committee man and amongst other things we discussed Jos Buttler. He, like many apparently at Old Trafford, considered Alex Davies to be a better keeper than Buttler, whom he said was more useful in White Ball rather than Red Ball cricket.

I would be delighted if Jos came back. I just hope he would give up his keeping role, and concentrate on becoming a proper top four batter. The England seduction has IMO lead him astray by being tempted up north by Giles, then being spewed out as we were afraid would happen by the England red ball 'experts'. Back with Somerset he could be our missing number three by learning how to bat properly.

Old Boy!
