@nickhar97251747: That's reasonable. But Jones also came in. And Shreck is very experienced. I don't think it sends a great message, though I accept you could also argue you don't want to make it too easy.
@nickhar97251747: Two signings in mid-season suggest that's not going so well, doesn't it?

Paul Edwards at Yorkshire v Nottinghamshire 48-5
If the Yorkshire bowlers continue to get this right, this is going to be a tough morning for Nottinghamshire, who have already lost the wickets of Lumb and Mullaney to Sidebottom and may find their first innings wrecked before the ball has lost its shine. Lumb edged a good ball while Mullaney played a poor shot at a time when his side depended on him. He was lbw. The crowd are enjoying this very much, of course, all the more so because their own batting was in such disarray 24 hours ago. And now Patel has gone, too. It is really not too daft a thought that if Notts continue to bat like this, the game could be done today. It may look a daft thought in a few hours' time and Yorks may bat again if they get the chance, but there may be a temptation to go for the throat of weakened prey. Yes, I know, cue Chris Read.
