Whilst I accept that, sadly, WSM is right, and they'll just trot the same lot out again vs the Brown Caps, I reject absolutely the logic that "it's too late to make changes," or whatever the reason for inaction is. Why is it too late? Have those on the sidelines turned into pumpkins? I think not.

As Jason said, in what was, pretty much, a crunch game (Jason didn't say the first bit, that's my reading of that match), we turned in a performance that was all but an embarrassment (he did say that bit).

And we weren't exactly a million miles from being embarrassed at Radlett, either. Anytime you lose by more than 100 runs in a white ball game? Yep, I'd say that's fairly embarrassing.

Yes, I know we had a huge win vs Kent but, let's be honest about that, we played against a very, very severely weakened Kent batting line-up, minus four men who would walk into that team. If it had been Kent at full strength vs SCCC minus four first-choice top six players, how do we think that might have gone? (remembering how most Kent full-strength vs SCCC full strength white ball games have actually gone!)
