Worcestershire sign Yorkshire all-rounder for next three seasonsNewby:
Mentioning Matthew Waite, there seemed to be a stream of Worcestershire tracksuits going for walkabout and stopping to chat with him when he was fielding on the boundary.
Have they got their eye on him I wonder.
How does the saying go? 'You only truly value something or someone when they're gone.
I thought MW bowled well , no, very well yesterday . I may not know what I'm talking about historically I think he was usually a first change bowler but not necessarily now . He also batted well with intelligence to support Hill ( ok until he ran himself out , having already failed to run out Hill) he's developed in all areas , just need a bit more consistency . I'd keep him but the siren voices at Worcester might seem too attractive
All is explained"" Good luck to him - another who will come back and haunt us.
Yorkshire's interim director of cricket Darren Gough:
"With Matthew out of contract at the end of the season and a big squad of talented players vying for places here at Yorkshire, we have been giving him opportunities to show us his skills before making a decision on his future with us,"
""However, having completed a loan spell at New Road earlier this year, Worcestershire have offered him a good contract which he has opted to take."
.... and we can pay them less that the established players.
BTW here are the mis-peaks with the truth from DG:
1 we had to play him because the E*C*B*s have hog tied all our other players or they are knackered because of the 'extensive training' our fast bowlers have.
2 we didn't offer him anything.
