Patel's bowling has come on leaps and bounds this year.

Another thing about him, he's incredibly passionate and emotive. Gets involved with the fans and celebrates with great glee. He's wound a few oppo's up in the past, great attitude to the game, clearly loves his cricket.

He certainly won't suffer from a lack of confidence. I think if given the chance to play he will be a breath of fresh air.

An interesting selection - I'm looking forward to seeing him play.

Yes he seems a good player, good selection.

Also seems to offer a useful bowling option too.

So that's lots of Notts players in the set up. Interestingly, is he not the first of the raft called up to be produced by Notts's academy?

Yes..... because we haven't got any more!!!!

Shaf isn't good enough although he has woken up lately. Footitt is the promising left arm rapid from a few years ago who has had terrible injury problems...... there are a few young kids like Hales, Fletcher and Saxelby but no one else has come thru really.

You could argue we've done the likes of Read, Swann, Sid, Pietersen and Pattinson (!!) some good.

I'm not watching but his figures certainly stack up well against the others.

Looks a very handy cricketer, so long as he can get a few runs he should stay in the side. Harmison has been the M.O.M. for me though.

First spinner to take 5 wickets for England in ODIs since Ashley Giles over 6 years ago.

Yes, I think GBG's killed us all with this thread. Well played Samit. I was surprised by how muscular his biceps are, I thought he was more flab than muscle. He does look wonderfully cuddly still. Wouldn't mind seeing him go on the Test tour to India, there can't be many players with a FC average better than his (46.07)

I also noticed his biceps and Shah's looks like a girl's compared to his. I think Patel's fielding is very good. He nearly got another run out today.

I must say I have been very surprised at how good a fielder he is given the way he looks - cuddly is the right word.

spoke to Samit 18 mths ago before a forest game, He'd just been picked to go to India on a development tour, He told me forthright that he was workng on his bowling, He saw a "gap in the market" for a spinning all rounder in the national setup!! So pleased for him. Top stuff Sami!!!

That caught and bowled today was a brilliant effort for someone even remotely rotund.
