Re: 2 homes wins for top spot starting with Hamps

The team is being selected to satisfy the players rather than for team.

Banton as a Davies replacement, Azhar because we can't drop an overseas, Trego for his swansong, Abell at 5 as he wants that, Bartlett 6 to help his development, Jove in because we have him and Brooks left out as the newbie.

I've no reason for the spin twins omission and nor apparently does anyone else. At least we're not showcasing them for the Hundred.

The selection won't change much as was already decided a long time ago.

Some players seem visibly frustrated and there was some choice language from Cove on the boundary at Bristol. To his credit he did sign a boys hat yesterday between collecting fours.

Our role in the tournament will now be quickly forgotten, and if we make it to the quarters, some will call it a success.

Edited as I muddled up the semis with quarters and thirds (or whatever they're called)
