Dave Houghton has chosen the side that I hoped for to open Derbyshire's season tomorrow against Leeds/Bradford MCCU.
What has looked to be the likely top seven for all of the winter takes the field, along with Anuj Dal, Sam Conners, Alfie Gleadall and James Taylor. Ravi Rampaul is also in the squad and it will be interesting to see who drops out in the morning.
That squad in full:
Godlman, Lace, Reece, Madsen, Hughes, Critchley, Hosein, Dal, Gleadall, Conners, Taylor, Rampaul.
With Logan van Beek and Tony Palladino likely to come into the side for the first championship match, the game is effectively an audition for the young bowlers, to see who might get the extra place.
It will be well worth watching on the stream and you can be sure that I will be in front of my laptop ahead of the 10:30 a.m. start.
I wish the boys luck for the game and for the coming season.
