Steven DaviesPlease let Steven Davies be the end to the to-ing and fro-ing of England wicketkeepers.

At 21, he’s got years on most of his rivals and he’s virtually matching all of them for runs and wickets. If he can improve and stand head and shoulders above everyone as the standout candidate, cricket writers the nation over would rejoice and put their poison pens back in their desk tidies.

Davies bats at five and has a top score of 192. Nobody’s said anything particularly bad about his wicketkeeping yet. We don’t own a poison pen, but our Quill Of Wicketkeeping Appreciation is drying up and needs dipping in The Ink Of Optimism.

Don’t make us use The Tipp-Ex Of Hindsight-led Revisionism, Steven. Don’t let it come to that.

    It seems great minds think alike. Either that, or neither of us knows anything.
