Just like us then. Our batting line up is ok for 4 day games but when it comes to the cb40 and the t20 then we have no chance because we dont have any big hitters. Our bowling in the one day format has been shocking aswell, Saj is a wicket taker but tends to go for around 6+ an over in every game and we are relying too much on spin, sometimes playing 3 spinners a game. Id like Shah to come to Lancs and give us that middle order big hitter, plus i cant see him playing for England again meaning that he will be here full timeJoeMercer'sWay said:I'm not sure about the finer details of a central contract but they might have to pay him whilst he's not with England. I think he'll end up at Middlesex 2bh, we might end up with Shah, I think we need a few batsmen, in fact we need plenty of players if we want to go up any time soon, watching us against Worcs with our toothless seam attack again, it will taken a few more years unfortunately.niall_mcfc said:Regarding KP would Middlesex have to pay anything to him? He will have a central contract at England so surely Middlesex could have kept Shah and brought in Pietersen aswell because KP is only going to be available for the odd t20 game.
