Does not have to average anything ridiculous, anything over 40 is pretty good in division 2, but needs a lot more than the one score past 50 he managed last season.
    No I don't think there's been any demonstration of Carberry losing interest in four-day cricket, and just because he had a below par season in 2012 it doesn't necessarily mean he wants to focus completely on LO cricket. I've read a couple of interviews with him where he states that he intends to improve his T20 cricket, and talks mainly about that rather than maintaining his usually high standards in the Championship. I'm sure he is professional enough to retain his four-day focus and get big runs, imo, he has to if Hants are to go up.

    I suppose the silver lining to the Yorkies' cloud is that most of the damage seems to have been done by one of their own

    It was a top quality 4 against high class bowling though - ink him in at 6 for the whole summer.

    Will be very interested to see how Will Vanderspar goes with the bat for Leeds/Bradford. He had massive wraps as a schoolboy at Eton but seems have fallen off the radar a little bit since then.

    County Champions: Middlesex
    Relegated from Division one: Derbyshire, Yorkshire
    Promoted from Division two: Lancashire, Hampshire
    Division two wooden spoon: Gloucestershire
    40 over Champions: Somerset
    T20 Champions: Sussex

    Fairly sure I predicted a couple of these last year, certainly the Stokes one. Have decided, without any evidence, that being sent home in the winter will have done him some good and that he will have a fantastic year.

    Another one worth noting is the first-class debut of Alex Hearne, ex-Dragon School, in his first year at Cambridge University, following five years of First XI cricket at Radley and three at our place. He's been on Essex's books for years, mind, so he might make a better fist of facing Tymal Mills than the rest of the students...
