The problem these days is that some coaches are willing to 'guarantee' someone a place if they change counties. Giles apparently did it with every one of his signings, and it looks like Gloucestershire have done the same thing.

I've no idea if he's got it in writing, but no one should be guaranteed a place. He hasn't even got a championship 50 yet (although his dogged 45 did help us beat warwickshire)

So, I wonder how long that 'guarantee' lasts. If he's averaging under 20 after six matches, do they have to carry on picking him?
