Yeah thats a very interesting point, i think like so many of our heroes of the past county cricket played a big role in their developement, even two of our current bunch (Darren Bravo and Kemar Roach) were different players after their county spells, Darren has hit four tons since then and Roach has turned into one of the best pacers in the world right now, summed up by him apparently having the best strike rate of any pacer this year.
