    Martin Love is in superb form and as long as he's not got too many commitments then Durham have a sackfull of runs coming their way. Pretorius is a very good bowler although he couldn't hack it against the Aussies, and very few can. Should get a load of wickets though

    Durham have done some good buisness, hope they can make it count this season!

    I like the look of Hampshire this season. We finally got rid of Neil Johnson (cringe) - Warne got a hatful of wickets last time around (as would any world class bowler) and Katich should be a very solid batsman at least.
    My house is burned down but I can see the sky.

    Virender Sehwag will perform well for Leics. I think Watson is a good bet in county cricket and am surprised that nobody selected him. He is a pretty good batsman and his bowling will be very useful in county cricket.

    Because he's a certainty for the Aussie ODI team, he's not had a great season so far, and his OD Stats still look poor. County Teams usually go for people who can perform in both styles of the game, especially with that horrid 20 over competition GRRRRRRRR

    Also I don't think the Australian Cricket Board want their young players all knackering themselves, there are a lot of matches in a County Season.

    Sehwag,Cairns,Harbhajan,Astle,etc,. are also certainities. Watson only plays in one dayers. I think he is a good batsman and a useful bowler but for AUS he is playing as a good bowler and a useful batsman. He will play in the counties at 4 or 3 and his bowling will be useful with the swing.

    Watson would do heaps well in county no doubt, he averages 40 with the bat in Pura milk cup so could probably puch 50 in county, esp in 2nd div and his bowling has been good this and last year and he would swing it a fair bit in county comps he would be one of the first players i would sign

    38 with the bat actually, and his bowling average is 25. Before this season his career averages were 42ish and 23...

    County Cricket is a long hard slog, and not everyone will do well in it, least of all someone who has only played 17 FC Matches...

    Depends on whether he's asked to open - if so I'm not so sure...
    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    Anyone want to join the Society?

    If he can do the job that Afridi did for Leicestershire in 2001, he'll go far.
    Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    He played two county matches when India were there and he scored two centuries.
