Liam Plunkett does more than enough to earn a Test recall

Liam Plunkett took 3-16 as Durham FINALLY made it into the Twenty20 Cup semi finals.

With three superlative overs behind him, Plunkett’s surely in line for a Test recall. That’s a whole opening spell for England these days.


Mike Gatting wasn't receiving the King Cricket email when he dropped that ludicrously easy chance against India in 1993.


Why risk it when it's so easy to sign up?


  1. Hooray for Plunkett, Hooray for Durham! I will at last be able to sneer at the Middlesex supporters in the office – they wanted Glamorgan!

    They will of course sneer back as they actually have tickets for finals day and will be going. [They show no signs as yet of appreciating the sartorial elegance of the meeting of our two teams]. Due to the joys of Durham having a mere two days to shift its ticket allocation, I’m forced into the postal option – so my attendance at the Rose Bowl is in the lap of the postal service gods – oh dear!

    Do the fey postal gods also conduct messages to the selectors? Do these messages get lost?

  2. His superb innings against Somerset last night adds weight to his case, as the selectors are largely interested in bowlers who score runs, not take wickets.

  3. Players to watch in 2008. Plunkett, yes – he’s rather good value right now!

    But remind me KC just what is it about ‘Zoolander’ Compton, we are meant to be watching? Warwickshire and now Worcestershire certainly haven’t seen much of him!

  4. You’re meant to be watching his boyish good looks.

    We’ll drop him from the list for next year and he’ll play a blinder. That’s the way it works.
