    I also scored 2 more than him in that match (4)

    He's a good player, but a bit lazy at club level. He tries to slog everything through mid wicket( even if it's outside off stump)

    Though supposedly more batsmen than bowler. Bowls a bit of medium pace, sounds a bit like rikki clarke, doesn't look too disimilar either, which is unfortunate for the lad.Have a look.

    Moeen Ali (Warks) - another in the Ali family. Hopefully he's better than the others.
    Steven Davies (Worcs; captain/wk) - does look promising.
    Joe Denly (Kent) - did naff all for Kent this summer.
    Mark Footitt (Notts) - er...
    Will Gifford (Worcs) - okay, if this is the same guy Will Gifford we did video analysis on in the Level 2 coaching course, then I'm worried. Think the sort of foot movement that Marcus manages on an off-day, then half it.
    David Griffiths (Hants) - um?
    Ben Harmison (Durham) - it's in the genes, he's gonna be a legend.
    Adam Harrison (Glam) - another we video analysed, a few issues but nowt serious - following his brother David to England contention
    Mark Lawson (Yorks) - token leggie
    Steven Mullaney (Lancs) - er?
    Michael O'Shea (Glam) - uh?
    John Simpson (Lancs; wk) - um?
    Tom Smith (Lancs) - erm?
    Mitchell Stokes (Hants) - ah?

    Ah well, I knew a bit.

He made 0 (Bowled Ravi Rampaul) as NL were bowled out for 31 by West Indies, Made 18 (batting 11) as they made 110 vs India(Pathan was playing), then was run out for 1 aginst England, where u-19 teammate Harrision played against him.

    Played with Gifford for the last 4 years, very talented player who is now at Loughbrough. Will do well for the u19 team- he did well in Worscestershire 2's last year. As for poor footwork- not sure that I agree with you, having seen him play, I always thought his foot movement was extravagant if anything, off back and front foot. Very elegant player when at his best and has teh drive as well.

    Well, given that my experience of seeing him runs to three shots on a video in a conference room, I'd back your judgment over mine

    Steve Mullaney

    I know Steve Mullaney,he plays for my club, Leigh in the Liverpool and District Competition. He is the best player for his age I have ever seen. Does anyone else know of a player of 17 years old scoring a double century for his age group. Not many, so just because a guy from Newton caught him in the final doesn't mean he's not worthy of his place in the U19 squad.

    Like I said, not many and really Ashington, no offence to Harmison but its not county level. And we all know how good Flintoff is so if he can do it, then it shows you how good Mullaney will go on to be.
