Oh agreed entirely. One of the benefits of Clarke is that he won't be playing for England barring rather strange circumstances. His muscular batting is far more useful in county than international cricket and his bowling is far too pedestrian for the higher level. I'd rather see Bopara or Collingwood bowling in an ODI because at least their relative lack of pace and superior variation make it harder to hit them.

It's also a better signing than Jones because Clarke isn't injured and unlikely ever to be fully fit again.

I can now breathe a huge sigh of relief that it wasn't Gidman Clarke should be an excellent signing for Derbyshire.

So were Habib, Hamilton, Dawson, Ormond, Salisbury etc etc.

I would have preferred Gidman.

Habib was a good player but personal problems ruined his career.

Clarke possibly has more potential than Gidman?

You're probably right - both have near identical batting records in first-class cricket, Gidman's bowling hasn't quite come on the way I hoped it would in the past couple of years but I guess you could say the same about Clarke really. The captaincy might well help him at Derby to fulfil his potential.

Not one of your more aesthetically pleasing bits, I hope.

Apparently so. The Hollioake's dad used to post on that site as well. Had a right go at me when Warwickshire were after the late Ben and I was , to put in mildly, unenthusiastic.

This move is a major coup for Derbyshire and shows they can still attract quality players. For Clarke the move and being appointed captain provides him with the opportunity to take his game onto a new level.

You're catching up on the Yorkshire thread far too quickly for my liking.

Wavell Hinds Signs For Derbyshire

Derbyshire have announced the signing of experienced West Indian batsman Wavell Hinds as a non-overseas player for the 2008 season.

Hinds has signed a one-year deal and the veteran of 45 test matches and 114 one-day internationals will play as a Kolpak player.

Hinds has captained Jamaica in the past and has some 7,119 first class runs to his name, with his medium pace also a useful option.

Head of Cricket John Morris said: “It is terrific news for Derbyshire that we have been able to add a player of Wavell’s quality and experience to our squad for 2008.

“Wavell has plenty of experience in both the test and one-day international arena and he has proven ability in scoring runs at the highest level. That is exactly what I was looking for in a Kolpak player.”

Chairman Don Amott said: “Wavell Hinds is another great addition and it is great to see that our squad for 2008 is really taking shape.

“John Morris has been working very hard to recruit quality players to take the club forward and now we are seeing the fruits of his labour.”

Derbyshire are definitely the team to look out for. Wavell Hinds should be a good, solid signing.
