Even beyond our own knee-high standards, our 2009 county cricketers to watch have come good.
Liam Plunkett is in England’s winter Test squad and has therefore proven himself an obdurate and pleasing stain on the second-favourite T-shirt that is England cricket – possibly a turmeric-based stain that could be around for some time.
