Well, two-thirds of those who voted thought that we should cease being Scorpions and change our name to something more appropriate for next season's one day cricket.

Given it's one day cricket only, maybe the Derbyshire Dum-Dums has something, while Derbyshire Devastated might save the journos a little time in their thought process. I'd love to think we'd be Derbyshire Dynamite, but that's one for the future and a lot better form than shown this year.

So to this week's poll. Has Wavell Hinds done enough as a Kolpak to warrant another deal next year? A batting average of 29 and a bowling one of 24 as I write in the Championship, solid if not spectacular. Is he worth another year or could we get a better young British player in, or give a chance to an Academy youngster? Register your vote in the next seven days.

Of course, I'd love Wavell to score 180 tomorrow and make the decision as easy as a poll to see whether we should keep Charl Langeveldt. Thankfully the South African maestro signed for two years, but any poll asking that question of Champagne Charl would only need one option - and it wouldn't be no...
