Zak Chappell
#1
George reports:
"It has emerged that Warwickshire have made a 28-day approach for Leicestershire's fast-bowling allrounder Zak Chappell. Chappell, another of those who might, in time, add some pace to the England attack, was left out of Leicestershire's side for the first Championship match of the season due to a groin injury, but is playing for the club's 2nd XI as a specialist batsman. The Warwickshire bowling coach, Graeme Welch, previously worked with Chappell during his spell in the same role at Leicestershire."

Great news - he is a wonderful prospect, a genuine all rounder.  Rhodes and him would battle it out to be Woakesy's immediate replacement - before Henry B stakes his claim !

I would imagine there will be a good chance that someone like OHD or Boyd will be going the other way soon - with a view to a permanent contract next season, if it works out ?

I hope we can get Chappell, he is a great prospect. A decent bat, as well as a quick bowler.

I gather Notts have made an approach too.
In the top division and nearer to home - they must be favourites.

Yes, unfortunately.

Bags of potential maybe but his numbers to date are poor, especially bowling. A wicket every 12 overs, by which time he'll have conceded 50+? Must do better.
Lara, Tendulkar ... Pilling.

I'm told by a reputable source that Chappell has difficulty staying fit and available for selection. If he does sign with us we have to hope that our fitness staff are able to keep him healthy.

There are GOOD Mugabe's

The fact that Pop Welch has persuaded us to go after him might weigh in our favour.  Zak worked with him over the last 2 seasons and might well want to carry on with his support.

Must be getting near the end of the 28 day notice period, things may be happening soon.  I see he played his first Leicester game for a while, in the 50 over match against Northants - and took 1 for 25 (he didn't bat).

A Leicester Mercury report says Notts have not given notice to sign him, they only indicated an interest.  So it is just us - though I guess he may decide to stay at Grace Road until the end of the season when his contract finishes.  He might think there's more chance of first team cricket at Leicester this year - can't see him getting in our white or red ball first teams at the moment.
