Jeetan Patel

...but he's been excused from the New Zealand training camp so that he can play for us against Somerset, which is excellent news given how the Taunton pitch has been lately.

Indeed. Somerset have taken comfortable first innings leads in each of their games this year but gone on to lose heavily. They'll be getting worried and could go for anything but I suspect we'll get a Bunsen.

Jeets - the new Captain when Ash 'relieves' Bell this week ?!  He's obviously going to be around Edgbaston full time for the next couple of seasons.

A dignified international retirement for Jeetan Patel. Good man.

So Jeets can play for us as a Kolpak next year and I assume Boyd Rankin won't be classified as "overseas" now Ireland has Test status - at least not before Brexit anyway. So that's a bit of extra wiggle room in the recruitment department for next year. Batsman or seam bowler?

Boyd Rankin, & Mark Adair, are both from Northern Ireland so are British citizens, with the full right to live & work in the UK.
While Robert may be bad, Robert is not all Mugabe's.
There are GOOD Mugabe's

As always, Brian Halford does a good job at interviewing - this time, with Jeetan:

I like the idea that Jeetan believes (understandably) that he needs a good rest from cricket, so won't be in action until mid-October.  A whole couple of weeks off!

....and while we are on the subject of Jeetan, he's only the second best Patel in the overall MVP rankings -  but still better than everyone else:

... and missed a chunk of the season because of the Champions Trophy. I think we can call him a "legend".
