‘We’ve been looking to recruit batsmen... we were in the hunt for Joe Clarke.’ 

Extensive interview with Paul Allott @lancscricket Director of Cricket. 

Reflecting on relegation, recruitment for next season & promoting young players. 

Have a listen ? https://t.co/4yVhXZOvNf https://t.co/1DmmniLlqU

More classic Allott and Lancashire. Talk. He seemed to suggest he has no say in the managers future so quite what he actually does as director of cricket remains a mystery. 

Annoyingly he seems aware of issues but almost denies anything can be done. Also we will look to youth is just code for no signings.

“Hameed got more opportunities than he deserved.” No shit.

They both started to make division 2 sound like a promotion by the end. Just as I shall remember hodgkiss’ words, I shall also remember Allott’s words: “We’ll only be in div 2 for 1 season”. Let’s see Paul.

Course we do!  Only country ever to win a football, rugby union and cricket World Cup. We are an elite nation in loads of women’s sports. We are only usually only behind giants like USA

I'm glad I stayed up for that, almost went to bed an hour and a half or so ago. 3.15 am here

England utterly clueless how to bat on turning pitches but it's not a surprise as when a county produces them and produces spinners for England their reward is a points deduction. The selection f

Looks like the old guard being dismantled.

So far Croft, brown, lilley have been shown the door. Clark obviously left. For me parry and lester and all the overseas/kolpacks can go.

Hopefully chapple and chilton next but doesn’t sound likely.

we need around 5 or 6 signings this off season.

The Hameed thing is very poor from Allott, it's not the lads fault if he's struggling and shouldn't be there, it's the management for having no alternative. He shouldn't be naming and shaming him - it's hardly like he's outshine by many of his fellow batsmen.

There you go, that explains his dip in form then.

Why? 

I think he need time away from cricket and then back after christmas and work with Mike Atherton and Graham Thorpe. Also go and talk to Cook. Might do him the power of good. Maybe it more of a mental problem now.

It is. That's why Ramprakash is not a person he should be working with. Hugely talented player but with fragile belief in himself at the highest (e.g. test) level. Agree that Cook would be a good mentor.

Thanks for posting this Chaddy. Some degree of complacency here expecting to bounce back at first attempt but concentrating on youth. The old addage you will never win anything with kids springs to mind. Sounds like they are targeting a non test selected Aussie batsman as next summers overseas player

Depending on Jennings winter he may be on England duty. Hameed who knows how he will perform!

Yeah after the Sri Lankan team bus was ambushed they’ve been in exile ever since.

I was going to go to Dubai/Abu Dhabi for Pakistan’s “home” game about 5 years ago. I forget the reason I was told I couldn’t go.

With Dubai and the strong ex pat community apparently it was well attended but in Abu Dhabi the scene was similar to a nothing midweek county championship game. Seem to recall the latter game suffered from things like alcohol bans and some sort of dress code. Not one for the tourists.

Although one of the lads tour with has been to Pakistan before the ban and he said conditions were spartan at best. Stuff like stepping over dead dogs en route to the ground.

Hmmm. And yet the Americans aren't 'all over' that particular country . . . . very strange, very strange indeed.

Meanwhile, credit where it's due. The Aussies sure did show one hell of a backbone to get a draw from that situation. . . I couldn't imagine England doing as well given the same scenario:

"Typical England!" one might say.

After securing the rain affected one-day series against Sri Lanka fairly easily they were then humiliated in the final game, going down to a record ODI 219 run defeat ?

 

Aye, though if you're going to get dicked, do it in a game that means nowt I suppose.

I don't think I can recall a time where our test team will look so unbalanced, if Buttlers going to play he should keep, Add the extra batsmen and stiffen the top order. The squad looks unbalanced and seems to littered with Smiths vanity picks, the top order looks a fragile as I can remember.

103 for 5 before a recovery confirms that fragile comment.. At least Keaton Jennings got 46.
