Hes a bloody sight better than that with the willow.

Briggs - cos he doesnt spin the ball - gets less effective the longer the format IMO.

yes hes effective in t20, thats it. Be better off picking someone like Kerrigan

Look what we've done to Swann :P No chance for Borthwick! Ajmal is the only spinner to have success vs India in recent times in India and that was only one match, it's tough, risky to play 2 if both aren't settled. What was worse with Swann was he was not spinning the ball on a turner but probably been taking tips from Harbhajan.:)

To be fair to Vic Marks, because of his ongoing involvement with Somerset, he probably knows more about county cricket than many of the commentators/correspondents. Plus he normally talks common sense, even though it sometimes has a Taunton bias.

"Taylor, who is set to leave Leicestershire for Trent Bridge with a year remaining on his contract, was keen on a move to Edgbaston but Warwickshire were unwilling to meet his wage demands which would have made him one of their highest-paid players"

interesting: We have to keep Woakes in particular.

Get them both signed up!

There should be no problems here should they? Should they?!

No I wouldn't have thought so.

Taylor not coming must be huge help in this:

1. Means we have a bit more money

2. Means we arent paying a new bloke a huge salary that would annoy existing players

3. Means we prob dont have to match huge salary to keep existing players on side.j

Although I would imagine that Chris Woakes will want a bumber rise based on his performances and the wages that one or two other players are getting.

Interesting idea that he might take over from Neil Carter at the top of the order in one-day cricket.

Dear Chris, Please forget about one-day slogging. You are better than that. Kindly concentrate on your entirely justifiable ambition to bat at 6 in first class cricket.

No disrespect to the excellent Mr Carter, a player for whom power-plays could have been invented. But Chris Woakes' talent is of a different order.

Yes but it doesn't mean he has to be a pinch hitter, I think it will be an interesting move if it ever happens. We need to look at a different direction in one day cricket. I always wanted to see Jim tried at the top of the order. He had some success batting at no.3 and he has the range of shots to exploit the powerplays

Yep. Thats his way into test cricket as well. Unless Bopara and or Patel tie down that number 6 position this winter there has to be an argument for Prior moving up and Chris getting in.

After all Engs number 6 has largely been a waste of space ever since the start of the Ashes last winter.

Yes we haven't had a decent no.6 since Flintoff who could do both roles. No disrespect to Tim and Rikki who both will probably never play international cricket again, Woakes needs to bat at no.6 for us.
