At the same time this is what the Kolpak system should be used for. Great player, retired from international cricket, wants something more than franchise cricket. Excellent stuff, I hope it pays dividends.
Probably fair. Think we might get a bit of a kolpak rush this winter as they'd be eligible as non-international players for the bloody Hundred that way - Colin Ingram is already a "local icon" for Welsh Fire. Steyn to Hampshire is near certain, right?

Malan to Yorks.....that's a very decent signing for us, and as left field as they come. Does this class as poaching? Or is it a move that suits all involved - esp with Middx wallowing in D2 for another season?
It is technically poaching because you’re stealing from a div. 2 county, and goodness knows they need their batsmen at the moment; but Middlesex isn’t exactly poor.
Aye, I can't imagine we're paying him any more than he's on at the moment, it's not like we're a bigger boy chucking the cash a la Notts, more just offering D1 cricket and a better opportunity at sneaking back in the test team. I suspect they'll miss him a lot more in the short form than in the CC
Balladeer: Happy new year and Christmas and all that to all. (Sorry - again, I mostly browse on mobile, so didn't see your earlier wishes!)

pierredelafranchesca: Gale and Pyrah to support Lions as coaches.....OK, i mean Gale has been shit for Yorks and is potentially neck deep in this racism case, but sure why not. In fact, keep the useless prick.

Balladeer: Definitely needed to be a thread. I came up with one of the same answers as you because I can't see the chatbox on mobile.
