In real life there are always occasions when some players find a little extra motivation in certain situations - for example playing against a former County (which also happens to apply in this case), playing against a County who previously rejected you... or even country (e.g Caddick vs New Zealand). It’s no different to the idea of bowlers having spells where they Bowl within themselves and then others where they let rip, pace wise, depending on match situation, sight of opponent they don’t like etc.

If being dropped from white ball hasn’t given S Davies some extra motivation, then I’d be worried. Same with Bess and Jove being told that they are, temporarily, surplus to requirements in red ball.
