"James Franklin is a good choice as overseas player."

No doubt he would be - but that comes as news to me. When was he signed? I thought the Shire were without a full-time overseas pro this year.

I wonder Huw if I have fallen victim to an incorrectly updated squad profile on Cricinfo - see

I think you must have - because this morning I have heard that Kane Williamson is returning to Gloucestershire (which is just as much of a surprise to me).

He's a good player no doubt, but last season he flattered to deceive a lot. It's bizarre that he has returned and Taylor let go. But then, much that happens at the Shire is bizarre. There were rumours of an outside sponsor paying for him and Murali last year, on the quiet, which may be correct.

I saw the news about Williamson too Huw. Give him a chance, I saw his Test hundred in India and the one he made last week against South Africa. He's a good player and you never know could perform better in his second season. The Taylor decision though is still a strange one - I guess it is the reality of the financial situation.


Good bye, sweet soul mate :)
