He also said there is an aim to have two overseas (or overseas zimbo) players in every domestic XI this coming franchise season.
Carlson and Byrom from Glamorgan
Welch from Leicestershire
Probably Curran from Northants
Probably Compton from Kent
That's 5 probables

Then-
Gubbins?
Ballance?
That's 7.

I have no idea currently about the other 3, but there are some quality batters there.

Counties aren't keen on sending their (pace) bowlers. The franchises here have very little fitness/S&C knowledge so it's a big risk to send a fast bowler. Hopefully we can get 1 or 2 though. Or maybe a spinner.

I hear we will see some players from Namibia/Uganda/Kenya maybe on short-term for a couple of matches at a time through the season.

Oh OK!
Ya just heard he's now got an elbow problem.
Had a heel injury that really hampered his career and now has had an elbow problem that required an op and it apparently hasn't worked.
I feel so bad for Dusty. This guy wants a career more than life itself.
Hopefully it mends and he comes out firing.
He's not a complete mug with the bat, either.
Plus I think he has to stay in UK to complete his time for the passport and can't afford to be out of the country. I think in your last year of qualification you can't even be out for 30 days.
This obsession with their passport is something to behold, people put themselves through hell to get it and often never have a requirement for it ever again.
A backstop if there's a Third World Armageddon, which is entirely possible the way things are run.

I wonder if it's a percentage of your net worth or just a hundred bucks? :lol:
