Pretty mediocre player with no real long term future to get a central contract(750,000 salary). As a fully qualified lawyer he can easily make around 250,000 per year just sat on his backside.

i think thats a tad harsh, he was playing well before the thumb break before the uae tour, that was his chance and i think if hed have gone on that tour things would have been different.

shame as another talent has come and gone without possibly realising his potential

Amir Virdi more likely?

Yeah it'd be Virdi, but you'd still have two in Batty and Borthwick

His batting average in 29 and he plays on pancakes at the Oval. Hardly worthy of selection

Oh dear, are the people who don't watch any cricket looking at averages and calling people mediocre again?

Ansari was not international class in the role he was asked to play, but he had potential to be at least close.

On top of the career issue, I wonder if he was experiencing back issues again?

More importantly, i wonder if he is needing a good home for any of his kit?

I'll give him 15 quid for his match bat!

Of course he wasn't ready to be a Test spinner. That doesn't mean he was a mediocte cricketer.

We have no international-class spinners in this country. How are we addressing the problem? By introducing a new T20 competition, of course!

He cant. There's no filter judging by the amount of trolling from that account.

Its almost as if GerrySA is back...

and moving the majority of first class cricket to the winter, seemingly.
