Lancashire go down and their two neighbouring counties go up. So it goes.
We haven’t been following division two, so we don’t really know how this has happened. Judging by the table and Jason Gillespie’s Twitter updates, Yorkshire have mostly been rained off and picking up points for draws. They are unbeaten though, which is something.
Derbyshire though? How the hell have Derbyshire been promoted?
People struggle to name Derbyshire’s players and that doesn’t seem likely to change because theirs seems to have been a real team success. We hate team success, but only because we hate ‘working together’.
We also hate ‘pulling in the same direction’. Don’t tell us which way to pull. We’ll pull whichever way we want to pull. Maybe we won’t pull at all. Maybe we’ll push.
Ideally, we’ll just stand there, staring into space.
