I noticed Tom Taylor's having a nice game v Lancs.
Obviously the problems Poynton has endured have to a degree fast tracked Hosein's rise. That said Hosein's been on the radar for a while now and the fact that Derbyshire have opted against recruiting a more senior keeper probably outlines their faith in Hosein.

Long term i think the belief is that Hosein is a better bet than Poynton with the bat.

As for Taylor i doubt he has the pace for England recognition but could become a solid county pro.

That's good to hear, what I'd seen in the past was more circumspect. Can he take Cook's place then?

Yes, fair dues for your earlier comment, because you're right that he looked quite cautious before.

All I can say is that when I saw him play at Chesterfield last year he looked the most assured opener I had seen for a long time.

But the other thing about him he is a strong, strapping bloke. Mark Church (Surrey commentator) yesterday said it was the best hundred he'd seen for a long, long time - and that's praiseworthy indeed from a man who sees a lot of cricket and isn't given to going over the top about players.

It's always hard to say of course, as plenty of people get trumpeted on the back of a stellar start, but the thing with Browne is he is just so solid, but has the gears, and also comes across as very level-headed. He's also more mature in years. Only time will tell, I guess, but there is something about him.

I know i mentioned this already but wonderful innings yesterday from the teenager Matt Critchley.

Pretty sensational stuff considering the state of play when he arrived at the crease.

Isn't he first and foremost a leggy?

Joe Leach is having a fine season with Worcestershire - 30 wickets at 18.

One might be tempted to put that down to some helpful pitches but he's averaging 50 with the bat.

What's the scouting report on him from those who have seen him?

How does he compare to Shantry and Charlie Morris?

Joe Leach is slow, early to mid seventies. Don't even go thinking about it.

Jack Leaning (Yorkshire), Ollie Robinson (Sussex), Craig Miles (Gloucestershire), Tom Curran (Surrey), Luke Wood (Nottinghamshire) and Alex Davies (Lancashire) are all in the running for the award after catching the attention of both professionals and pundits with some stellar performances in the LV= County Championship so far this season

Leaning 57.76
Davies 37.15
Luke Wood 28.50/19 at 28.15
Robinson 26 at 22.42
Curran 43 at 25.93

With the counties starting to play their pre-season friendlies it's time to bump this thread for this season.

What young players have kicked on over the winter and are set to become first team regulars?

Let's try to avoid obvious names like Aneurin Donald who already has already played over 20 fc matches and keep it to players who have played less than 5 championship matches.

Essex's Paul Walter is one who intrigues me. A tall left-handed bat and left-arm seamer who's quite raw but had a successful off-season in grade cricket and has a little something about him. He might be a potential successor for Graham Napier but Essex's promotion has probably come at the wrong time for him in the longer format and he's more likely to become a regular in limited overs.

Glamorgan's Kiran Carlson is another all-rounder who intrigues. He's already made a name for himself by becoming Glamorgan's youngest ever centurion and will be one to watch this year.

Will Saqib Mahmood be a first choice at Lancs?

Durham's probably a good shout for a young player to emerge from - Aidan any names to look out for this year?

Josh Coughlin (brother of Paul) is a bowler who has been knocking on the door over the last season in the 2nds. James Weighell is another one.

The player everyone has raved about since he was 11 years old is Jack Burnham. Played plenty of games last season but hasn't yet reached his full potential. If he keeps progressing like he has he will be huge.

Harry Finch, Delray Rawlins and George Garton should play a lot of cricket for Sussex. Tom Haines played a few games last season as a 17 year old but I suspect he will be in the seconds still this summer.

It will be interested to see if Rawlings gets in the Sussex team after his efforts for England U-19s.

Funnily enough Burnham was the first one I thought of when thinking of Durham players who'll benefit from the ECB's intervention, but he's played load of games already. So far his career seems to have been somewhat Gordon Mulchall or Nicky Peng but hopefully he can take that next step.

With a new coach who knows. It will be interesting to see how conservative Chapple's selection is.

But I doubt it in the four day game with Anderson, Jarvis, Bailey and McLaren. plus a few overs from Procter and Clark when Anderson goes.

I'm sure Mahmood will get one day & T20 games.

Yes, he also caught my eye - as you say, raw, but has a certain something. He hit six sixes off an over in a club game back in 2012.

Tom Wood at Derbyshire. Don't know much about him but read a feature on him in the Cricket Paper. Scored 200 in a 2nds game last year and also scored a ton for the Unicorns.

Amar Virdi at Surrey. The latest spinner to emerge as a great hopeful, he topped the 2s bowling last year and took a five-fer for England U19s. Has a back injury at present, though - I don't know what the extent of that is.

Matt Waite at Yorkshire. A very promising all-rounder at Yorkshire who seems full of confidence. Made an immediate impact on his white-ball debut late last season, scoring 19* and taking 1-6 in the T20 quarter-final v Glamorgan, and then 3-48 and 38 in the RL50 semi v Surrey.
