This starts very soon.

Would I be right in thinking that there are likely to be three changes compared to the red ball side currently in action at Trent Bridge? Namely:

Peter Trego
Roelof Van Der Merve
Tom Banton

Instead of:

Marcus Trescothick
Two gentlemen named Jack

That could/would give us a team of something like:

Banton
Davies
Trego
Azhar (not sure of his place in batting order relative to Hildreth?)
Hildreth
Abell
Bartlett
Gregory
Van Der Merwe
Craig Overton
Davey

5 seamers (including Tom) and Roelof? Lots of batting.

Then, probably, TG and Jamie Overton (if fit) to rotate in for Josh and Craig? (whilst we ride the hot-hand in Lewis?). Maybe the flying Dutchman to get the odd outing, too?

Although Jack Brooks has been our most expensive bowler in the championship so far, he successfully filled the death bowler role at Yorkshire for a good many seasons (including last when fit) and will surely play against Kent on Good Friday.

I don't see him as a white ball bowler at all and, per Cricinfo, he's played a grand total of 36 List A matches in his career.

[www.espncricinfo.com]

And not a single List A game since 2016, CJM?

Having said that, he did play some T20 for them last year, but no 50 over games for three years.

Maybe that was another, admittedly minor, factor in his decision to leave Yorkshire to move to Somerset (and yes I know the 3yr v 2 yr one)

His record is certainly not such (in white ball) that he should have been made any kind of promises in that regard (beyond, perhaps, "You'll be considered.") I'd be shocked if he'd been told he would be a regular.

In previous years haven't we had more in the way of spin? No JoMybs this year. Would Azhar's leggies be useful either as a wicket taking or a run strangling option? Or do we consider Max or Dom.

I didn't suggest he'd been made promises. But at the time he agreed to move to Somerset he was part of a bowling line up that included David Willey, Liam Plunkett, Tim Bresnan, club captain Steve Patterson, as well as youngsters the club are bringing through such as Ben Coad, Matt Fisher and Josh Shaw. They had also just signed Mat Pillans from Surrey. Jack wouldn't have to be a genius to realise his 50 over career was likely to resume at Yorkshire anytime soon.

Whilst Somerset is also blessed with a broad selection of bowling options, the 'wiley senior pro' section of the filing cabinet had a little more space-Tim Groenewald and Pete Trego the only ones here (and Roela I guess, but a spinner).

Just saying that although I'm sure Somerset didn't make Jack any 50 over promises, I doubt if they'd have told him he wouldn't be adding to his list A stats either.

50 over in April i want 4 proper seamers.
Dont see a need often for 2 spinners.
Watch this space for the next 3 week future of Jack & Dom. Rvdm sure to be the spinner if we only opt for 1.

I'm going.....
Azhar Davies Tregs Hildy TomA TomB
Lewis RVDM Craig Jamie Timmy G

Quite happy with a rotation of our 7 seamers, we have 8 group games in 19 days with a possible 9 in 22 if we need a 2nd/3rd play off.
The ost important thing by far is our chosen 4 quicks for the HUGE next champo game v Surrey are fully fit and firing for May 14.

For Friday I’d go with this team.

Davies, Ali, Tregs, Hildy, Banton, Abell, Gregory, RVDM, C Ove, J Ove, Brooks

Think we’ll rotate our seamers during this competition. Timmy G, Meerkat and Davey all waiting in the wings.

4 seamers in April, RVDM as main spin option with Ali for occasional part time leg spin if needed plus Abell and Tregs as backup seam options. Gives us plenty of bowling options.

I'd rather someone who can hit boundaries from the start with Davies- the role J-Mybs played last year. Azhar seems to me more of a middle-overs-accumulator type. Open with Lewis maybe? He did well with this role in the Blast a couple of seasons ago.

Why not open with Dom? If we don't use him we'll lose him.

Certainly if he can make the team by all means use him. If he can't then he may have to look elsewhere. Depends what he's willing to make his role.

It isn't for Somerset to find him a place. It's for him to make one his own

Wouldn’t completely surprise me if Banton were given the Gloves and someone like Green or maybe Dom get the gig.

You're thinking they'd drop Steve D? Can't see that happening unless he has a really horrible run of batting form (which would not be unprecedented).

Only Banton, Trego, van der Merwe and Groenewald, of possible selections against Kent on Friday, playing for Seconds in opening Second XI Trophy match away to Middlesex today.

Team from: Banton, Byrom, Trego, Rouse, van der Merwe, Green, Lammonby, Bess, J. Overton, Groenewald, Gilchrist, Sale.

Middlesex, who have included at least six current Ist XI championship players, lost wicket to Jamie Overton in the first over.
