Re: White ball 50 over side, 2019?

I didn't suggest he'd been made promises. But at the time he agreed to move to Somerset he was part of a bowling line up that included David Willey, Liam Plunkett, Tim Bresnan, club captain Steve Patterson, as well as youngsters the club are bringing through such as Ben Coad, Matt Fisher and Josh Shaw. They had also just signed Mat Pillans from Surrey. Jack wouldn't have to be a genius to realise his 50 over career was likely to resume at Yorkshire anytime soon.

Whilst Somerset is also blessed with a broad selection of bowling options, the 'wiley senior pro' section of the filing cabinet had a little more space-Tim Groenewald and Pete Trego the only ones here (and Roela I guess, but a spinner).

Just saying that although I'm sure Somerset didn't make Jack any 50 over promises, I doubt if they'd have told him he wouldn't be adding to his list A stats either.
