    Picked up wickets but bowled absolute garbage - didn't see anything promising from him that day.
    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!

    Shahzad was certainly wayward and fairly expensive, but he was quick, swung it, looked like a wicket taker and had a bit of passion about him which I liked. As it turned out, he was injury-prone, and bowled a lot of crap, which was punished by good batsmen, but when he first burst onto the scene I remember thinking he looked promising, certainly more promising than Amjad Khan anyway. I certainly wouldn't be advocating England selecting him again anytime soon though.

    Jordan is another one of course, fast, can bat, great fielder. Yet before this season was awful.
    I'd be really tempted to give Mills or Joverton a go after Oz. The 3rd seamer spot is becoming a big problem and there are quite a lot of people who have been tried for awhile but don't look great, Finn being the main example. It's probably worth gambling on a youngster at some point and giving him a run.

    Can't pick Mills yet though, I mean he hardly gets a game for Essex. Would definetly want to see him tour with Lions though.

    Barker the most deserving of a go at the moment, can bat as well.

    We did exactly that with Finn.

    Yeah, but it's not too far different from Rankin who basically plays as Warks' 4th seamer half the time.

    I think, Lancs, Worcs, Mddx, Glos, Glam & Derby would all want him.

    With him having an England contract (one day) you would think most sides can afford him too.

    Yeah, you could see the Lankys really marketing him for one-dayers at OT too.

    Really didn't want this, CK should have tried to just bat his way into the England team for Tests, and leave the gloves for Jos.

    Grrrr.

    Tbf, I do still stand by the thought that Kieswetter is a better gloveman, although Buttler seemed to be getting better. And obviously they both get into the side on their batting alone.

    I don't think it's Somerset's fault at all really, just all a bit unfortunate.
