    Or a tie?

    So, Bancroft. If he’s selected that’s it for his Durham season.

    The club MUST look for a replacement.

    Is Tom Latham doing anything in August and September?

    Virat Kohli always wanted to play Championship cricket........

    Disappointed but if he had a good time with the bat it was always on the cards.

    The big question is, will he be back next year.

    We all knew this was going to happen. Replacement needed.

    Why?

    He's going to miss one T20 game I can't see them going back to him for the Ashes.

    Have another look at what I posted, the answer to your question is already there - you quoted it.

    Why though. If he doesn't make the test squad he will miss one T20 game

    I very much doubt he will

    It’s a hypothetical question you div, obviously if he doesn’t get picked we don’t need a replacement :rolleyes:

    With the win over Worcestershire today we have a real chance now of gaining promotion. We sit fourth, one point behind third in a year where the top 3 teams will be promoted.

    Bancroft is guaranteed to miss 2 T20 games when he plays the Australia ‘Trial’ game next week and I’m sure the club will be watching with real interest to see how he performs.

    If he’s selected for the Ashes squad - we MUST get an overseas man in for the remainder of the season IMO. I’m not too chewed about the T20, but the four Championship games are going to be key.

    Hope to see you back up next season, lads.
     
  15. If Short does well in T20 they may keep him on.

    Bostock on Look North last night said they had a player lined up. Personally think it will be Latham.

    I'm old-fashioned with overseas players so where we can, I would always go back to those who have done well for DCCC. And there aren't many better than Tom.
     
  18. At the members forum last night Martin asked Franklin if there was a Plan B in the scenario of Bancroft (also in attendance) getting an Ashes call up and he jokingly replied that there wasnt but you get the impression that a contingency plan is in place and the talk around the ground is that it would be Latham.

    Well I’ll be hugely impressed if that’s the case - the club need huge praise for making it happen if it turns out to be true.
