So Jason is identifying the issue relating to the second International for the T20 is complicated by Renshaw's return home.

When did the club know Renshaw was returning home before the end of the season?

haven't they been aware of both situations since the start of this season? We knew we only had 1 T20 player since then for sure and we were also aware that Matt was not going to be in Taunton by August - though his injury brought it forward a bit.

Why is that a complication now?

The other news is we are 2 bowlers down at least for tomorrow. Neither Cove or TimG are available

3 spin option?

No doubt is seems that Lewis will go into the T20 as skipper.

So there we go. A few questions and the 'floodgates' of info open (Sm100)

I might be wrong, Grockle, but remember that rule about the number of overseas players that can be registered at any one time that infamously tripped us up with Cameron White? Perhaps it's still in force? I think the rule was something like it takes 21 days after notifying the ECB for a player to be de-registered, so maybe Renshaw is not yet de-registered. And I think no more than three could be registered at any given time... so if we're dead set on getting an overseas in for the trip to New Road (in the CC), we couldn't both register somebody for that AND find somebody else for the T20 until such time as MR has been de-registered? So maybe it really would have to be somebody to play *both* T20 and the CC if we want said player to be available for the CC1 trip to New Road, assuming that we want them registered before MR is de-registered?
