Ballance has the slight advantage of having actually scored test runs.

Good to see Daryl Mitchell back in form. I haven't given up on that international cap for him !

@Haystack_Jnr A county video that can't be watched in the UK... Little bit ridiculous!

...no, Steve. Just no.
by StaggerBreaths8/31/2016 9:53:08 AM
He's back in form because he's back in the Second Division. :P

Matt Warwick - It shows the nature of the gap between the divisions that we are talking about a player 'Having' to move, but I suppose its also the position Vince is in he has a poor record in div 1 and he can't improve it in div 2 and at this stage of his career I wonder if he thinks he can afford even a season getting hants back up

Whoever gets the nod, they are gonna need to be decent against spin. Ashwin in particular must be looking forward to getting in amongst the middle order.

Yeah, it's a problem. Vince's record in Div 2 is excellent so we don't really learn anything by seeing him play there. But Hants will need him for sure.

How's Ballance against spin? All the talk was about how he couldn't handle good left-arm pace (like, er, basically everyone).

Was playing with this selector yesterday trying to make a div 2 side for banter but there are no bowlers to chose, plenty of batting...
