Weekend warmer

Thanks for your emails on last night's Mark Footitt piece, which was written for Cricinfo, as well as the blog. As you will gather, I am a huge fan of the bowler and the way in which he has turned around a career that was going nowhere fast at one point.

That he should play for England against New Zealand is a no-brainer for me. Whether he does is another thing altogether. No doubt England will overlook him for a massively inferior bowler from down south who has taken a fraction of the wickets and probably bowls right-arm fast medium...

Elsewhere, and ahead of a preview of the game tomorrow, Glamorgan have named their twelve for the game that starts in Cardiff on Sunday. Interestingly, it includes two spinners, which suggests that my assertion that either David Wainwright or Tom Knight may make our squad isn't perhaps too far wide of the mark. Maybe they are preparing an early season beach...

Australian Michael Hogan is also back in their squad, after missing the early season matches through injury.

Finally tonight, a 'well done' nod to Huw Lloyd, who maintains his position at the top of the Fantasy League, though his lead over Robert Tomlinson has been cut to just 28 points. David Aust is closing fast in third in what looks a competitive league.

It is early days, though, just like in Derbyshire's season. Plenty of time for anyone to make a move and rise through the pack...

I'll be back tomorrow with a match preview.

Enjoy your weekend.
