Re: CC1 Match 2. Somerset v Notts. 11-14th April 2019. Trent Bridge

Early days yet, but Somerset`s recent `failure` to bring in any new batters, heavily criticised here by the usual suspects, is rather in contrast with the Notts policy of waving their cheque book and poaching left right and centre from other Midlands counties.

Lets look at their five most recent `acquisitions` - Ben Duckett 0 and 4
(dropped on 0) in the current match; Ben Slater 24 and 34; Joe Clarke (who some say should have been our main target) 2 and 2; Zak Chappell not selected; Paul Coughlin already injured again after missing almost all 2018 for the same reason.

Give me your George Bartletts, Eddie Byroms, Tom Bantons, Dom Besses, Tim Rouses any day.
