I've just put up musings on the T20 this year. Our seam attack is very sparse

1. Cove is not there

2. Tim has a groin problem and that can niggle on and on for ages

3. Not sure the Meerkat is yet available or how useful he will be as of yet

4. Lewis is a moveable feast though he does start but is expected to be at the forefront of the captaincy, batting and bowling - big pressure for a man with his mind on other things as well

5. Pete will have to be back in to bulk up the attack

6. Josh Davey is the only other fit one available with no other pressures. I'm happy with that but big ask for him to step up.

7. There is Tom A of course - could be his tournament

8. Jamie? Who knows? T20 is not the usual format for out and out pace unless it is right on the money, used sparingly and where it works.

So 8 possible bowlers, 2 unavailable (possibly 3)

Questions about 2 of them and their value to the campaign

So 3 under BIG pressure - and then the spinners.
