Tom Maynard has already set out proving you right, his innings at The Oval today was magnificent, barely a false stroke and would have had a hundred had he not run out of partners.


Although widely tipped for England honours before long, James Taylor's move to Trent Bridge may not do much for his cause a it is known as one of the most seamer-friendly tracks in the country. His first two digs (4 & 13) are unauspicious. If you want my hunch for the next batting debutant for England, look no further than Tom Maynard - who is also a fine fielder anwhere. Moreover, the Oval wickets will continue to build his confidence - in direct contrast to James Taylor's challenges further north!

I hear what you are saying Ian, but having witnessed a particularly brave performance from Taylor on a very green Oval pitch for Leics last season, I have no doubt that he has the heart, technique and temperament to enjoy a long Test career. That said I agree with you on Maynard, who looks a tremendous prospect.

Maynard looks a good un Martin. I expect to see him in the limited overs squad sooner rather than later.

Good piece, but why is Meaker a South African but Ben Stokes isn't a Kiwi? They both came to the UK at the same age FWIW.

Paul, you caught my mischevious reference to Meaker's birthplace. All I can do is plead guilty on that count!
