Not good!

A chance for Evans at last perhaps?

That was my first thought - but then I looked at other options which they may choose. Like playing Clarke at 5, Ambrose at 6, followed by Woakes, Barker, Botha, Metters and Rankin i.e. pack the team with bowlers who can bat to compensate for shortcomings at the top of the order. Feel that approach would be in line with the selection policy from last season.

But my personal choice would be to go with Evans.

Looks as if we might have lost Maddy for the seasson. Is Westwood fit again?

In the article posted by Kim, it says at the bottom that Westwood still has the ankle niggle, but should be fit for the game against Sussex

Just noticed that, with his latest innings v Australia, our old friend Shiv has dragged his Test average up to 50 - at least until they get him out.
He seems to have had an incredible late flowering of his career. It's not so long ago that the West Indies selectors were looking to ditch him.

A very patient batsmen. Who else would have spent so long in the 90's ?

It would have been a case of hit the runs or get out for most players.

In the end his patience was not rewarded by a century today but it is impressive to see his approach to batting. Similar to Trott perhaps? Wait for the bad ball and scoring opportunities. Easy to say but hard to do.

Patience is indeed a virtue!

Yes as we saw when he was with us he has a lot of class too. Should be rated up there with the greats of the modern era really.

Yes, with that square-on stance, he looks unorthodox but when he actually puts bat to ball, his method is very sound.
