From the Northen Echo - a bit of bad luck for Plunkett

Quote:
LIAM Plunkett took the field at Trent Bridge on Friday wearing dark glasses because of a couple of stitches above an eye. It transpired he was so angry when he got out the previous day that he threw his bat down as he entered the dressing room and it bounced back up and hit him in the face.

You have to laugh at that one. How are things up in my old county then Aidan? Having Harmison available for most of the season seems to have copper bottomed the title.

There's still a long way to go yet Slogger. A few injuries and we might struggle. I certainly didn't expect us to destroy Notts in the way we did as this could have been seen as a game between the two main title rivals. As the old football saying goes - we'll take it one game at a time.

That's quite funny Aidan! Plunkett doesn't exactly strike me as the sharpest tool in the box not least after his driving ban!

Is he still bowling with that horrible action or has he like Anderson reverted to his natural action?

Onions has an elbow problem so you could well lose both Onions and Harmison next week which may have an effect!

Congratulations to Durham getting an Ashes Test for 2013.

The Oval has also got one and the other three haven't been picked yet.

It would be good if they were Lords, Trent Bridge and Old Trafford.

Not really a dig, is it? Just re-hashing stuff that most people know (apart from the bit about the wage bit, anyway)

It's the bit about the wages that annoys me. I'd like to know where he gets his info as no-one at the club seems to know.

The wages bit is probably rubbish. Warwicks total wage bill - including insurance and pensions - is £1. 2 million. With England picking up some Durham salaries plus giving counties about £100,000 per centrally contracted player its inconceivable that yours is 50% higher than ours.

Theres no sanction if you breach the salary cap anyway.

I read somewhere that of all the counties only Durham Lancashire and Surrey were able to reach the salary cap. of the 3 it seems only Durham are getting real value for money. What can you say about Surrey though? Paying top dollar for a load of tripe.

I wonder if Davies been fit would Plunkett have missed out for Bangladesh.

Is this the pecking order for the bowlers at Durham?
Harmison, Onions, Thorp, Davies, Plunkett, Claydon

Almost. Plunkett would be 3rd and Thorp 5th.

Surely it has to be Harmison, Onions, Plunkett and Davies as first choice with Thorpe as first reserve.

Thorpe and Davies are about on par but Thorp tends to be more pacey.
This season may see some changes as Thorp is not getting any younger and shouldered the brunt of the work when Harmy and Onions were away and Plunkett was injured.

Davies has to be 'managed' more as he is prone to injury. He returned from SA with aq sore heel but unrelated to the injury he sustained in NZ last year.

"Mark Davies - returned from England duty in South Africa with a sore ankle, this isnt linked to the injury he had last year. He is currently resting from heavy training."

It's amazing that Thorp is 34 and has only played 50 first class matches.

He's a Convict though, isn't he? Because they have only 6 first class teams, it takes longer to force your way into the state team, and then when you get in, there aren't as many games to play as in England.
