He did get selected in a t20 squad last year didn't he, but England picked Buttler to open instead if I remember right?

Ahh you're right there I think mate!

malan has been hot and cold for years, big prospect, lost form for a couple of years and got it back in the last couple and played well for the mighty Middlesex

the one to watch is Joe Clarke I think

this lad is very highly rated. maybe not achieved his potential so far.

think he plays for Worcs. there's plenty of player just reach County level and don't go on....wonder if he will be one of those

Fair enough, given that he's been selected with those stats I'm guessing he must be a serious prospect! Thought the sides were picked on stats from last season though, anyone know if there were some discretionary picks by whatever selection panel organised it?

Top 4 picked on last years merit (mvp stats) for each side
the rest selected by the coaches.

Duckett is so overrated. All good and well feasting on div 2 substandard bowling attacks. But just trying to slog aimlessly against good bowlers isn't as easy as it seems

if your nets anything to go by it would be a very quick game.(upppsss)

only kidding but you would need a few hired hands I have visited both nets the west would trounce the south and the north would too, some good players out of the Dotball stable you would have to get Keiron and Mr Purchase out of forum retirement.

I think it would be but we always talk about it but never do it..

the forum nets seems to be gathering pace though..

Imagine in a few years maybe a CUSTOMBATS COM rivalling the best trade shows...

We don't care if we got beaten because we'd be wearing jolly snazzy hats whilst we did it, and we'd get all the hot chicks afterwards!

I'm by no means a big Duckett fan but the lad has some talent! Still only 22, needs to learn but feel he can be the equivalent of Warner for England. Not sure he is needed in Test cricket though. Jennings and Hameed will do a job and Cook isn't going anywhere soon.

And while there is gap between div 1 and div 2, its not as big as made out in the media, lots of good players down in div 2.

I rate Duckett...I think he has got some serious talent, at 22 he (presuming he proves a quick learner) has plenty of time to learn his game and what's required.

Westley of Essex might be a name on the horizon possibly...yes it's Div 2 bowling he is facing but looks a good player

but would like to see him  maybe get a chance with the Lions, don't think he has been on the latest tour.

Agreed
@FattusCattus  would rip through the batting line up, and honourary southerner @Northern monkey would chase most of the runs down himself inside 3 overs! ;)
