Our 2010 cricketers to watch list weighs heavily on our shoulders like a yoke of inaccuracy. It’s not been a vintage year, but thoughts that we had cursed the Durham contingent can now be banished. They’ve all come good in the same match. Well, not Will Smith. He’s not getting picked any more. The other three have done okay though.
Phil Mustard carved his second hundred of the season and then hit 51 not out and is therefore doing about a billion times better than his mates.
After 113 overs without taking a wicket, Mark Davies finally came good and finished the Nottinghamshire first innings with the frankly stupid figures of 2 for 10 off 15 overs. He then developed a sciatic nerve problem and won’t be bowling in the second innings.
And Liam Plunkett? Well, Liam’s not going to be wearing the High Visibility Tabard of England Squad Membership any time soon, but 3-66 means he hasn’t been shit in this match at least.
