Re: Willis Trophy Game 2 Northants away

IF he's fit, WSM, then LG should replace Brooks - who, wickets at the end notwithstanding, has not really bowled very well in either match, IMO.

Then again, at this rate, perhaps we should pick 11 bowlers, purely for batting purposes? Certainly, we've needed Brooks' batting in the first two games of this season.

Edgbaston varied between being a bunsen and a flat-track last season. I don't think Warks have Jeetan Patel anymore so presumably it won't be the former next week. Maybe it will be bland - as per the Northants track, on which the same Northants side that we've just seen be rushed out twice in next to no time, batted for no fewer than 175 overs, for only 6 down in Brummieland.
