 It was indicated during his presentation at lunchtime against Northants that he had been given a back room roll of some capacity at the club, has his experience was too invaluable to lose .

Would that be a cheese & onion roll?

He shouldn’t have played for them at the World Cup really. His body language during the Namibia game was so poor and got pointed out on commentary. Possibly (and in the end was) his final game, he should have been shouting and rallying his team. Instead all he offered was a silent double teapot. He’d given up, shocking really.

I've always been a fan of RTD, but I suspect that he's a little bit emotional at times. I hate to say it but Stevens has proven to be more durable. Just think if we'd swapped aging all rounders a couple of seasons ago...

Do you honestly think Darren Steven could have played the 2018 innings v Surrey @ Oval or the 2019 inning v Surrey @ Chelmsford or the BWT innings @ Lords?

I don't - his captaincy in 2019 was crucial to us ...

I do. Plus Stevens is a better bowler. However until the last two seasons RTD did his bit t for the team. Not  a great skipper but a marked improvement on his predecessor.

Stevens batting is shot too for the most part.

He'll probably be able to bowl those dibbly dobblies well in to his 50s though.

If you mean a century and half century (albeit against Leicestershire and Worcestershire) and 47 in the T20 finals day then I suppose his batting is ‘shot’.

He scored more CC runs than any of our batsmen did this season!

Not saying much really when you're comparing him to the likes of Westley.
