To be honest, we haven’t got much to add to what we said about Steven Davies last year. At least this year he’ll be in Division One.
This is the problem with news of earth-shattering importance – it makes writing about Worcestershire wicketkeepers less appealing.
Imagine you work in the accounts department for a trampoline manufacturer. One day there’s a trampoline testing crisis and you’re whisked out of the office as an emergency stand-in for the normal test guy who’s been apprehended by the police after not returning an item to the bagging area when using the automatic cashier system at Tesco.
After a day of fun-packed trampoline testing, the man returns to work and you’re sent back to the accounts department. Suddenly your spreadsheets seem grey and sterile. No matter how much conditional formatting you use, you can’t recreate the breathless elation of just jumping up and down for a living.
That’s how we feel writing about Steve Davies right now.
