Not the best of days for him, hopefully he does well in the three day game

Word is he is keen to return down south and Middlesex have expressed a strong interest.With the expected departure of Joe Denly and Test calls for Rogers and Robson next season he would have ample opportunity to secure a regular spot.

Well with Hain Webb and Coleman coming through, and others just behind them would we really miss Evans ?

Hain is an outstanding prospect but you don't know whether Webb and Coleman are going to make it. Look at the players in the past like Poonia, Parker and Ord who scored bags of runs in the 2nds but didn't make the stepup.....Evans has proved he can do it at first team level but if he's going to go he's going to go but we could very well miss him yes...

Laurie was one of two early wickets to fall, with a five ball duck.

Sadly that won't help his prospects or a new contract, here or elsewhere.

Yes , it is not until they get their chance that we will know . Hopefully their first chances will come on a hot day , mid anoon 40 overs or more on the ball .
( They wont always get that ) .
Laurie scored his first runs, at Yorks ( 150+, plus one other under those conditions , last season, 2013, after failures in 2012 season under more difficult conditions.
Most of his innings in 2012, were with 20 overs on the ball, and damp conditions. ,
Everyone can score big scores , including our fast bowlers.
It is of course about FREQUENCY, the better batsmen, or the in form ones, do it more regularly .
Laurie can do it , but the frequency has reduced.

I'd say 943 runs @ 55 with 3 hundreds and 4 fifties showed good FREQUENCY .. If he's not getting runs on flat wickets for the 2nds he shows he doesn't want to be here. He's off!! and there won't be a shortage of interest....He's proved he can score runs in the first division so Middx or Surrey will back themselves to get the best out of him.

I'd say it was a decent strip at Edgbaston, Notts scored over 450 for just one wicket yesterday.

I'd expect Laurie to have a second chance with the bat before close of play tonight, we're currently 9 wickets down and will almost certainly be invited to follow on.

Indeed, already 28-3 in the second innings :-)

The Woody's are having a Ball :-)

Reminds me of a England v SA U19 international when you could of had the headline, "Woods got DeKock" :-)

If,as expected,the Pears come up,what's the odds Laurie going there?

He's a southerner so unlikely and they have a lot of young batsmen in their team.. Ajmals last game for them but a 27 point gap between them and the third place team with a game in hand should be enough without Ajmal...

Not sure their current crop are good enough for div.1Paul

Yes probably not Simon but if they get Ajmal back next season and produce some spinning wickets then I can see them winning games at New Road...But they have become the yoyo side last few years. Too good for div 2 and not good enough for div 1. Evans would make a good signing but think its more likely he'll end up down south...

I agree he's on his way to Middlesex despite tonight's heroics. What's galling (including no doubt to Evans) is that double standards Warwicks always apply. A home grown player like Westwood will be excused multiple bad spells over the course of a career, but a signed outsider like Evans has to serve an over-long apprenticeship in the Second XI then gets binned/written off at the first sign of a bad run. Then we wonder why we're not an attractive proposition to new signings!

Yes Lawrence it's not just home grown plSyers who have been kept in the side after extended periods of poor fort though. Porterfield although he is playing well this season was often the talk of why he's still in the side on this forum.

Evans was kept out of the side too long by giles and in his first full season gets nearly 1000 runs. Still keep hearing about all our young talent. We have hain, he's an exceptional talent. Javid is decent, not in the class of a mooen Ali, Webb. Coleman and Lewis have less than a 50 percent chance of making it.
