    What aren't you sure about?

    don't worry about the political side.

    As counties are only allowed 2 over seas players in one side,many of them buy kolpak players,who can't play for England but don't count as an over seas player.

    many people dis agree wtih Kolpak players because they genraly aren't very good and they can stop young English players from getting into the 1st team.

    I think Flower is classed as an over seas player,TBH,the people complaining about Kolpak players(namely me)don't watch or care much about domestic cricket and don't really know how many Kolpak players there are.

    Johnathan Trott of Warwickshire is a good example of a Kolpak player

    I'm pretty sure he is a Kolpak, maybe not anymore but in Wisden Cricket Captain 2005 he is.

    You're right, Carter has an EU passport.

    Rubbish.

    If they weren't any good they wouldn't be signed, and if a youngster can't get ahead of someone else who's supposedly so poor, then they've not really got much hope of a big career.

    The better youngsters will get in, and they'll then be playing a higher quality of cricket...
