    Adrian Birrell? I'm Sure he was Ireland ODI coach when they got to the super 8, 2007 i think.

    Edwards signed up on red ball contract - no brainer.

    Is batting good enough? Assume will target a batting overseas?

    So, with a bit over a month to bowl-off have we got any openers sorted out?

    No, and no overseas either. It's positively Saints-like

    Expecting an announcement at 4pm regarding a signing. No idea if it is a contract extension or a new signing

    Was acting skipper for SLís win in SA. Donít know what he is like against the moving ball but coped with a high quality attack overseas. Good signing on paper

    Looks good. Scores 50 or more one innings in 3 from the stats.
    I see it's only for the first part of the season though.

    Hey, there's cricket on Thursday and Friday of this week. More early next week as well. Hope it doesn't get weathered off like last year.

    "Sri Lanka opener Dimuth Karunaratne may not join Hampshire as their overseas player, while selectors consider him as a potential World Cup captain.
    ....
    Karunaratne has been asked to stay in Sri Lanka during April and play in their domestic 50-over competition before the World Cup begins in May."

    So once again an iffy situation with our projected overseas player. I know that last season Amla eventually turned up but he didn't seem to be all that interested and swanned off early. Karunaratne played in a representaive game today I think. Made 20 not out.

    I looked up some old season start dates yesterday and it seems to me that the County Cricket season is starting earlier and earlier. Used to be mid-end of April'ish I think.

    Thoughts on the best Championship lineup?

    Will Vince open as the ECB want? Possibly more likely now due to the Sri Lankan not being available.

    In theory, a very strong lineup aside from one opening spot.

    But as we saw on a fair few occasions last season, if you haven't got solid openers everything else is fragilised.

    Until a replacement overseas is sorted, I'd say we'll go:

    Donald, Alsop, Vince, Northeast, Roussow, Dawson, McManus, Berg, Barker, Abbott, Edwards

    Still a batsman short in my mind

    Vince opened today in the warm up game.

    I think he will open at the start of the season to try and get into England reckoning as an opener.

    Well they seem to have tried everybody else apart from Anderson and Broad.
