Cricketers to watch in 2008
It’s pretty much April and there aren’t many fixtures this week, so let’s get on with this season’s Ones To Watch.
As usual, names will appear below as more are added throughout the week. We’ll give a little away by telling you who’s not appearing though.
Mark Davies isn’t appearing, which pains us, as he’s been an ever-present One To Watch and has never really let us down. But with Steve Harmison seemingly out of the England reckoning, first-team opportunities might be limited for everyone’s favourite Viking, so we’ve been brutal.
Tom Smith‘s out, because we’ve done away with all young Lancastrians on the grounds that they never get to play, no matter how good they are and even if they do, they do nothing, which lets us down doubly, being as we’re a Lancashire supporter.
Bilal Shafayat‘s out, because the pressure of being One To Watch clearly gets to him and he forgets how to bat.
James Benning‘s out because he was crap last year. Usually you get a second season to prove yourself, but we’ve picked out too many players, so James misses the cut. We’re sure he’ll be gutted.
