Titch and CC Div1/Div2
« on: April 04, 2013, 07:40:05 PM »

A quick post on James Taylor's past and future, as well as a look at the County Championships two tier system...

What type of season do you think Taylor will have? He's obviously a driven individual, but will he overcome the recent problems?

He's Only 23!
He's Only Played 3 International Games!
He Still Averages 47 in FC and List A games!
He was the only one who scored any runs for the lions down under in early 2013!

Its a little early to pass Judgement on a player that is by international standards 'a pup'.

Top lad, plenty of potential and time on his side.

Earmarked by the powers that be to be groomed into a top player with the captaincy:temperament ratio being well balanced

Don't get me wrong I'm a huge Titch fan, I think after Collingwood's retirement he should have walked into that spot. But maybe a different county, where he would be batting in the top 4, would be better for his confidence/development.

Absolutely agree - there is a demand in modern sport for instant results and success.  No coincidence you hear from all of the ex-pros comments and articles about learning your trade and growing into the game.

He will be a top quality player and most likely make lots of runs in international cricket.  Like Bairstow and Root, let him play and if he takes his chance earlier than expected its a bonus.  The ECB wouldn't have invested in him so heavily if he wasn't up to it.

Chances are he is up to it but I don't think that the move to Notts was a good one for him, nor do I think he is quite ready for international cricket just yet. 

Why was Notts not a good move?  Well, its a goldfish bowl there, and he is not the same aggressive character as some of those, such as Swann and Broad, who have thrived there.  He obviously needed to get away from playing in the Second Division, but could perhaps have chosen better where he went to do that.

Why not ready for internaionals? Lack of top class experience combined with lack of confidence hindered him - though it was a tough old time to be asked to debut against the Yarpies last year.  He will get there - he has a good cricketing brain and has shown in the biff bash stuff that he is not short of power, which some commentators held against him last Summer.

I think Notts could have been a good move for him. I know he knew Hales well as a kid so I think he will settle into the environment. But why the management thinks Patel should be in the top 4 above him! Makes no sense in my eyes...
