It was suggested in a local South London paper a couple of weeks back. Davies is out of contract, he publicly stated earlier this year that he wanted to resume wicketkeeping as he felt it was his best route back into England contention, and the journalist suggested Somerset would be a possible move to suit him. He's repeatedly been linked with leaving almost since he first joined Surrey. Personally I feel he's a very gifted batsman who would do best concentrating on his batting and nailing down the number 4/5 slot at Surrey.

For about a year now I've been hearing rumours about Tim Ambrose leaving Warwickshire. That might be an avenue for Davies, particularly as he still has family connections not too far away.

Is Foster retiring? Can Hampshire really afford to lose Wheater's batting?

I heard that Lumb, Libby and Broad may be as well? I also heard that Greg Smith had been offered a new deal by Notts.

Pretty sure they are all under contract. The last comment from MN was Wood and Smith had August and Sept to fight for a new deal (or words to that effect). Neither have done much since. Smith bagged a pair against Leics 2s last week and could well be playing for the 2s tomorrow against Derbyshire 2s at Denby.

Why on earth Notts would want to offer Greg Smith another contract is beyond me!

I thought he left Essex primarily because he wanted wicketkeeping opportunities, but he now seems to have lost the gauntlets at Hants to Lewis McManus. This recent match report gives a bit more detail:

http://www.espncricinfo.com/county-c...y/1033693.html

Even if Foster isn't retiring, Wheater is ten years younger, so logically he should get his chance to keep wicket there sooner rather than later. And there's a good chance Essex will be playing a division higher than Hants next year.

Hampshire head into this match with a fair bit of instability brewing behind the scenes. Adam Wheater’s loan move to Essex was confirmed yesterday while reports are circulating that James Vince could be heading in the same direction.

He won't want to go down to Division Two, whilst Essex are coming up. Do they need him though? Got several good young batsmen coming through.

The Wheater situation seems a shambles. Playing for neither team in this round.

Where's this on cricinfo?

Don't understand that move. Essex have enough batsmen (other than as cover).

Freddie Wilde at the Ageas Bowl for Hampshire v Somerset

Good morning from the Ageas Bowl where hazy morning sunshine has burnt off some eery early morning fog from the countryside of Hampshire and outskirts of Southampton.

This is a critical match at both ends of the table with Yorkshire chasing a historic Championship treble and Hampshire battling for their division one survival.

Both teams welcome back their regular captains to the helm for this match; Andrew Gale for Yorkshire returning from injury, and James Vince for Hampshire, who was given the last Championship match against Somerset to ease himself in from international duty before taking the reigns back from Will Smith.

The last couple of pitches here have been very flat - with first innings scores of 637 and 548 being recorded in high-scoring matches. It’ll be interesting to see what the groundsman has prepared today with Hampshire needing more than draws to cling onto their place in division one.

Hampshire head into this match with a fair bit of instability brewing behind the scenes. Adam Wheater’s loan move to Essex was confirmed yesterday while reports are circulating that James Vince could be heading in the same direction. Wheater away from Hampshire is a move that has been brewing for some time since he was displaced as primary wicket-keeper by Lewis McManus, largely for lacking energy in the field, but that it has come now with four matches remaining in Hampshire’s season and is a loan move is slightly surprising. Wheater is not available for Essex’s match against Worcestershire and James Foster is still the resident gloveman at Chelmsford.

Yorkshire, of course, announced earlier this week that head coach Jason Gillespie will be leaving at the end of the season. There's plenty to talk about and the cricket hasn't even started yet.

The news from the toss is that Yorkshire have won it and will bat first on a pitch that from a distance appears to have a tinge of green to it. by Freddie Wilde 10:45 AM ↑0

Mick Newell, at today's members meeting, said Notts personnel for next year would be broadly the same as this year (i.e for the second successive year, we won't be signing anyone). The logic is that Notts finished 4th in 2014 and 3rd in 2015, so the ability to get out of the Second Division should be there. Ahem...

He also confirmed that Siddle will still be the overseas player for next year, and hinted that Gidman will return after his loan spell at Kent, as he's a proven performer in the Second Division. Of course, strictly speaking, it's no longer his call...

The ability to get into the Second Division certainly seems to be there!

Word at The Oval yesterday is that Gary Wilson is on his way to Leicestershire.

As Director of Cricket wouldn't that be his call rather than the coach's?

If the Director of Cricket at a County isn't making calls like that, what do they do?

I understand he'll be responsible for all non-first team matters

He (and Stoneman) is currently playing for Durham against Surrey, a match for which Surrey have omitted Steve Davies (and Harinath) to accommodate the returning Roy & Ansari after international duty and injury respectively. It's a dead rubber for Surrey but they appear to have fielded their strongest four day side ahead of Saturday's cup final, which makes me wonder whether Davies has made up his mind to go to Somerset now and may not return for the cup final?
