What about.... Dawid Malan, awesome striker of a ball and useful leggies, Joe Gatting down at Sussex should get a long run in the side too. Michael Lumb in One day cricket.
Struggling to find any bowlers that I think will break through in LVCC though, possibly Boyd Rankin, Steve Finn and if fit and firing Simon Jones still should knock on Englands door.

The Reverse Sweep

That's funny as both Malan and Gatting were on my shortlist but didn't make the cut. The heart said to go for Simon Jones but the head said no. You might find one of the players you mention in the top six tomorrow...

Thiru Cumaran

I do hope you put James Taylor of Leicesters in, great prospect, he is!

Also, could Matty Hoggard be in the list as well? I just have a gut feeling that he might be a great TLC captain and might even possibly take Leicesters to 1st Division! :D

BTW, do you know any good place to follow country cricket, or, more specifically, Leicesters cricket?

The Reverse Sweep

Thanks for the comments Thiru. You'll have to wait until later to see if Taylor makes the top six! As for Hoggy, you could be right about his captaincy credentials and his bowling will certainly help LCC next season. Pongo Cricket is a good site for English County Cricket as during the season there are normally a number of articles focussed on the county game.


I think Northeast has a bright future ahead of him. Griffiths also may do well this season. As far as Tremlett is concerned I always thought that Tremlett bowled too short and of course isn't fit enough.

Please have a look at my cricket blog.

The Reverse Sweep

Thanks for the comments. Let's hope that Northeast fulfils both of our expectations! I've taken a quick look at your blog and it looks pretty good - I've added it to my favourites!


What about young Bairstow of Yorkshire? I think Jones of Worcestershire will be excellent.Finn of Middlesex should be exeptional this year.

The Reverse Sweep

Thanks for the comment SmileySi. I agree with you on Bairstow. A good player. He just failed to make the cut as I wrongly assumed that he wouldn't be a regular this season for Yorks.
