View from the camp – Matt Maynard
We’ve got had a highway journey now and that may be fairly powerful on the physique, however the schedule is the schedule. We do play plenty of cricket and we’ve got to count on to have that. We’ve got a sufficiently big squad to rotate and relaxation if we would have liked to.
I believe we’re very near that magic components. I stated that to the lads within the dressing room at Radlett and I believe we’re actually shut. We simply must get these batting partnerships working barely higher collectively, and for longer within the innings.
We’d like them to take it a bit of deeper and never essentially assume this subsequent ball has to exit the park, and try to bat as deep as we probably can, as we did at Sussex.”
