We need to sort a couple of other things at the same point: (1) wickets – cannot prepare wickets where the spinner opens the bowling, just need a better plan where seamers also play a role (2) contracts – local players require meaningful contracts or they will keep looking to overseas club options (3) 147 clubs voting for the SLC office bearers which has now turned out to be a political circus. Need to start somewhere, so happy to see what we are hoping is a long journey to international competitiveness.
