Hard to recall a season when so many have been injured and unavailable so frequently. Jones,Raine,Griffiths,Chappell have all had ongoing problems. McKay has been seemingly carrying an injury too for some time. Add the 'personal problems' that have sidelined Dexter for most of the season and it's questionable if LCCC have fielded a full 4 day side all season. Having said that it doesn't disguise the weaknesses that still exist in all departments. Where next ?

I see Shahzad bowling for Leics. Is it permanent? Previously tried for 3 games in July for Northants 2nd XI

I think Leicestershire have to take a leaf out of Northants' book when it comes to rebuilding. Scout very carefully and think about what the player can bring to the team. Obviously a signing such as Raine was an example. Before anyone puts pen to paper, Leicestershire should be thinking "We have to sign this bloke".

SkySports say:

"Former England bowler Ajmal Shahzad has joined Leicestershire after impressing while on trial with the county.

Shahzad was released by Sussex last month but has now secured a deal with their Specsavers County Championship Division Two rivals.

Leicestershire are in the midst of an injury crisis among their bowling attack - Ben Raine, Zak Chappell and Richard Jones were already missing and they have now been joined by Clint McKay and Matthew Pillans."

Options would be the loan scheme or a free agent.

Ben Raine has been a huge 'miss' in all forms of cricket this season, let's hope he comes back strong next season.
The decision to bring in Horton,Pettini and Dexter was right at the time but none has justified their signing.
It may well be time again for LCCC to back what looks like another promising group of younger players , Evans,Swindells,Chappell,,Fazackerley,Parkinson,Al i,Hill, Dearden are all in that category whilst Sayer too retains promise.
If Pilans is available he might be another 'Raine' type signing ?
