Sorry posted at the same time as Following On.

The reason we are in this situation is because we did NOT plan our long term signing in advance.

Had we done that we would have had Renshaw's replacement onside in the time we needed to discontinue his contract, take a second T20 player and then have the long term option back in the fold for the games we needed him for.

We seem to have faffed about for another year when we had timetables to plan around and now have found ourselves unable to take advantage once again and will probably lose out on both another T20 player AND, once again, with a second half CC1 player.

If, of course, the quality we require was ever available!!

To be honest, we may need the bodies as well as the skills!
