Yes he's been more sorted since the Worcestershire away game of a season and a half ago I think.

Got to hope that the earlier inconsistent fitness records are organised now. There are questions about whether he sees the clock ticking and thinks he needs all the advantages he can get on his side for England consideration.

He seems to have been in squads for consideration quite a lot but has yet to break through into the final groups and onto the pitch. This may be a move to change that he believes - 'new challenges'. Hope so even though it won't be as a Somerset player.

The shame will be if that does not happen and he continues his career as a 'good county professional' with another county rather than us.

He may not be the last. The same consideration may be working its way through Dom Bess' mind and Craig Overton I would expect.

From a one day basis Tom Banton has to consider his white ball career at a county that will not be involved in the 'premier' white ball competition of the country as it is presently formatted. Though that may change one hopes given the mess of this year.
