This is way too early for knee jerk reactions, wailing and gnashing of teeth, but if we bat like we did today on a regular basis it will be a long summer.
I'd agree with a couple of comments on yesterday's post that we shouldn't be getting rolled over for that total against that attack. While there was a mystery element to some of the bowlers, our batsmen need to realise - and quickly - that twenties and thirties are little use.
As I say, no getting carried away. This time last year we hammered Surrey and thought we were the best thing since sliced bread. We weren't, and nor are we as bad as that performance today suggests.
At least I don't think so.
In closing tonight, as we're socialising, there is no chance of Robin Peterson coming back. He would never get another Kolpak deal having gone back to international cricket having remounced it, and he's not good enough to get an overseas role in my opinion.
Usman Khawaja - get fit soon...
