Ollie Stone?
#1
I may have missed this, but what’s Ollie’s current injury? How long is he expected to be out for? Thanks

Yeah, I saw him. He looked pretty sharp. I answered my own question! Thanks anyway, Rednal Bear

Congratulations to Ollie. Pretty obvious that he is selected as he is one of a few English bowlers who is no, not pacey(hate that word) or quick(that one also but genuinely fast. This calls into question the letting go of Chris Wright and the fact that Barker might go also. If Stone does well we could see less of him like Woakes and next year in Div 1, we suddenly look short of seam bowling. This was bound to happen and I brought it up a few weeks back.

It is ironic that Chris Wright has possibly had his best bowling season since the 2012 Championship year but against division two teams. I suppose that the loss of him, Boyd Rankin and possibly Keith Barker has been planned for by the signings of Liam Norwell and Craig Miles as well as interest in Zak Chappell, Jordan Clark and Richard Gleeson who have signed for other counties. Miles bowled well in the Championship game at Edgbaston for Gloucestershire and there is also Henry Brookes, Ryan Sidebottom and Olly Hannon-Dalby. Personally having seen impressive performances from him in the 2ndXI I would like us to offer Dan Douthwaite, the Surrey born all-rounder a contract. Admittedly Stone playing regularly for England would be a big loss with his genuine pace to clean bowl and obtain lbws against good batsmen and tail- enders, like Boyd used to do.

The 2 blokes from Glouc have not bowled in Div 1 though and this leaves me a bit apprehensive and as for Boyd, I did like him but felt he was often too short (His bowling not him) and not aggressive/nasty enough at times, also not enough big wicket hauls.

Doubly good for the club I reckon. He’ll get at least one test in SL if England stick to their suggested plan of rotating Broad and Anderson and the extra coaching and experience will do him good for us. I know Giles was quoted worrying about his fitness, but if he’s part of a rotation he’ll have done less work than he has done for the last couple of weeks.

I say doubly good as I can’t see him being called away for large chunks of next year unless England have big injury problems. All this selection really is is identifying the next few seam bowling cans off the rank in a roatation to ease the workload on the senior bowlers. Now we’ve got promoted, I also can’t see Barker going. He doesn’t seem to be the type to follow a pay increase from Notts or Surrey, likely the only clubs I can see making overtures.

I've just read an incredible stat about Ollie Stone's season:

Apparently his strike rate of 22.3 is the lowest of anyone with over 25 wickets in the history of the county championship!

Well, that's got to go down as one of the shortest debuts in the history of international cricket?

It couldn't have been much shorter.
There was the case of Jack MacBryan of Somerset who was called up for the Old Trafford Test match against South Africa in 1924. The match was ruined by rain, and MacBryan remains the only Test cricketer who neither batted, bowled nor dismissed anyone in the field (where he spent 66.5 overs). He was never selected again.
