What’s Steven Davies been up to?

Steven Davies - likes the stumps behind himHe’s been playing in division two, which of course doesn’t count. That’s what Steven Davies has been doing.

He has had a good time recently though. Worcestershire are in the first division of the Pro40 league and played two matches last week.

Against Somerset, Davies hit a quarter of the balls he faced for four and finished with 92 off 60 balls. The match was tied. Against Gloucestershire he did even better, hitting 119 off 87 balls. Unfortunately, his keeping’s not getting rave reviews. We say ‘unfortunately’ but it isn’t really fortune, is it? It’s to do with concentration, co-ordination, athleticism and stamina.

At least Worcestershire should find themselves in the top division next year, so Davies, along with team mates Kabir Ali and Simon Jones, can give a truer indication of how good they are.


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. I saw him make the ton, he looked pretty damn good, but he does have michael clarke disiease, where every ball goes in the air at catchable heights.

  2. He’s got to be better than Ambrose, surely?

    If Prior continues his recent relatively good ‘keeping, the Test slot might be sown up for the forseeable future, but there’s still hope for Davies, I think.

  3. We’d imagine Prior will ink himself in for a good while during the winter. Davies should be well-positioned to take over when Prior retires.

    That’s the way it should work. That’s the way the selectors should be planning it to work.

    It manifestly won’t work.

  4. He’s having rather a better season than fellow one to watch Rikki Clarke – though moving to Warwickshire and being a favourite of Ashley Giles will probably guarantee at least England Lions captaincy.
