Looks as though both sides really have decided to save there cash considering both Smith and Warner will be back next year.

RR going after Klassen is interesting as that would mean they have 3 keepers in their squad - Butler, Samson and him.

Warner's replacement at SRH i think is fairly straight forward too be honest - they need an opening batsman as a replacement so that means quite a few options Guptill/Hales/Ronchi - i think the new captain will be squeeky clean Kane Williamson.

Smith's replacement however i think is more tricky as there are less middle order bats for RR to choose from and i think like Manor says they will be reluctant (or may still do so) go for Root because of his availability (and don't forget they lose Stokes as well at the end and maybe before that!).

Also consider who RR have already got as overseas - Stokes, Archer, Butler, Short and Laughlin - Smith was guaranteed to play as captain but now Rahane is captain they may go for an overseas that is 1. available the whole tournament and 2. that is a back up eg. Lendl Simmons

People saying Amla for a replacement - he has committed to being Hampshire's overseas for the 1st 3 months of the season so i think that probably runs him out.


Warners replacement is Hales

Pretty sure he’d signed for a club over here as the overseas for the season as well, sure I read it online somewhere

I read it that they are holding a meeting amongst the counties so that this situation - two players being taken once it is too late to secure replacements - cannot happen in future.  The ECB are very keen for Willey to go as they don't see him as a red ball player at international level, so its a fair accomplit.  Rather sad when three weeks ago Yorkshire backed out of chasing Morne Morkel, who has previous with us, because Moxon wanted to back his English bowlers.

I'd have a rant but its not worth it.
