Yes, LoL, that had occurred to me. If that happens then, perhaps, we should instead consider one of Surrey’s two former Durham men, Stoneman or Borthwick, one of whom may be surplus to requirements ... although it depends on how Rory Burns goes in the Ashes (if does well may get Central contract).

Regardless, SCCC figure to have needs in our top three. If Hildreth doesn’t get into the England side with his top three ploy, then I assume he will revert to four. Tom A doesn’t seem to want to bat up in the top 3 anymore. Marcus is no long-term solution and Azhar is on a one-year deal. That leaves Byrom, possibly Green, possibly Banton - if seen as an opener at first-team red ball level and the up-and-coming Lammonby. In other words, there may be a vacancy for a more experienced figure in the top three.
