I know it's early days, but I do feel Durham face a rebuilding process that will take years.

I totally agree.

We've lost over half the side from a couple of seasons ago.

I've enjoyed watching some of the stream from Leicestershire v Sussex.

A pair in a day for the best player in the recent South Africa V Australia series. Shows how relevant county cricket is to the international game.

Why should it be? Is Derby v Middlesbrough relevant to international football?

It doesn't show anything of the sort. It has absolutely no bearing on the matter. You're just riding your hobby-horse again by any means necessary.

Everyone is riding their hobby horses on here. Markram might have a terrible season at Durham. Wouldn't mean the CSA should drop him from the South African side.

It would be up to them, and it might depend partly on where they're touring next. In any case, it's a long way from a pair in the first match to a terrible season.

Michael Burgess looks a very interesting prospect at Sussex, with a first-class batting average now over 50.

Luis Reece 150 today. Should still be playing for Lancashire. No idea why he was released. Well, perhaps could guess.

It's great to see him go on and fulfill his potential. Still only 27, so who knows where things might go if he posts more big scores.

Century for James Bracey today, following on from a 156 and then 82* and 44 in the final two games of last season.

Only 20 years old, a name to watch out for?

Matt Henry was a good bowler. I remember watching him when he first played for Canterbury - nice, clean and clinical (and repeatable) action. Then started to play internationals and couldn't get the length right. I'd say he's got more potential as a bowler than Southee but just hasn't found it at international level.

Hopefully a good season in County Cricket will serve him well in finding more consistency.

Yes, definitely, I've seen him play for Loughborough. He must still be studying so he has broken into the 1st XI early. As you point out, he has shown the ability to bat for long periods.

He caught my eye around 3 or 4 years ago playing for New Zealand A in a first class tour game against Surrey at the Oval. He was the best bowler in a decent NZ attack playing a relatively strong Surrey side and looked well suited to English conditions, so I wasn't surprised when he broke into the Test side shortly afterwards. Straight away I thought that if Surrey were ever looking for an overseas pace bowler he'd be worth considering. If he's available for most of the CC matches Kent will certainly be in a much stronger position to challenge for promotion.

Even more good new for Derbyshire, Footitt on loan....

Wisden
“Mark’s pre-season has been affected by injury and we feel it’s a good opportunity for him to get out there and get some cricket under his belt,” said Nottinghamshire director of cricket Mick Newell.

“Our pace attack has started the season in fine form and Mark has found himself short of game time so far.

“Hopefully he can get some overs under his belt and come back ready to go when the season ramps up from June onwards.”

Been a tough old 12 months for Footitt since he started last season on fire, single handedly winning Surrey a game at the beginning of the Championship.
