Perhaps they should give one of the young quicks a go? Kitt?

Wood and Hutton will be strike bowlers (which is not their game), more like bowling all rounders that chip in but would not knock teams over.

However, to be fair Fletch has been excellent in CC this year, for me Gurney is over rated and has lost pace (used to consistently be in the high 80s but now rarely gets above 83-84 mph), which may well be due to the fact that he play all formats. I think 50 overs is his weakest format, which could also be said for Fletch. We won the cup largely due to the powerful batting and the ability to tie teams down in the middle overs. Our first 10 and death bowling has been very average at best.
