He's just a medium pacer, which in england you can get away with because of the conditions.

He was Middlesex, but I think wasn’t getting the games he thought he was due and moved to Gloucestershire?
I see he’s advertising himself as a coach, which possibly indicates he’s planning an exit at some point. Or it may mean he’s not on a great package?
I’ve watched him play a few times, unfortunately didn’t make many when I did, but you can see he can bat a bit.

Yeah he has a three year contract for Gloucestchire. He has been doing better this year and has a fc average after 19 games of 19.55. Whilst he is medium pace would be a good number 8 for us for next wc, Better than tiripano I would think, especially as a he is a decent t20 batter.

For next wc our best team would be although hami is getting on

1) hami/ Ryan Murray 2 Solomon (3) Ervine 4) bt 5) Raza 6) Sean 7) Ryan Higgins 8 blessing 9 Kyle j 10 creamer 11 chats

Eddie
Welsh possibly

In Perth, Murray Godwin’s son is apparently very good but we are likely to lose em. In first grade is a guy called Daniel Moore needs some work for zim, but we should be getting these guys to play a year in zim instead of them playing a year of club cricket in England they have more chance for zim selection with our current strength anyway. All it needs is a call from a franchise

Murray Goodwin's son was developing into a leg spinner wasn't he? Any updates on him?

He’s almost unique in that he’s a good leggie and a top order batsman. I believe he’s an exceptional talent.
I’d be surprised if he’s ever even been to Zim though.
I’m sure I’ve mentioned this before, but Daniel Moore used to play here as a junior, but was not a stand out player, he played in a school side that had Murray, Curtis, Welch, Byrom and basically never got a chance to bat :lol:
His father is here right now and is an avid wildlife photographer, so maybe they’re considering returning?
He did well last year in WA, but haven’t heard much about him this season. There are levels and then there are levels.

Cricket certainly runs in families- I was shown a form the other day which was asking players for their stats and various other information and they wanted to know if any relatives had ever played FC or international cricket. They were obviously looking for genetic pedigree :lol:

I saw a trials date for the AC Academy being advertised.
I was a bit confused by that because you would usually just pay to play.
