Bancroft's record for Gloucestershire suggests that, in English conditions, Eddie Byrom is better than he is (Byrom hasn't been batting against poor Div Two bowling, remember).

If we're going to go back to playing on very flat pitches, then Bancroft might make loads of runs (but so might everyone else, in which case he would still not be better than what we already have). But with high summer games absent then even if we play on tracks devoid of mischief at home then there are still seven away games to play, plus ambient conditions may create plenty of swing in some of the home games, too.

p.s. Until I read it on here, I had no idea that Bancroft had even been playing for Gloucs, which is an indication of how nondescript his efforts were, I think.

On paper this is a highly questionable move and we shall have to hope that the situation on grass proves to be somewhat different.
