This season for Gloucestershire is shaping up in a remarkably similar fashion to the last one.
Just to remind you, in 2010, no Gloucestershire batsman scored 1000 runs, the first century wasn’t scored until August 4th, and (so I have just learnt from the new Wisden) the first batting bonus point wasn’t earned until three matches into the season.
And yet, somehow, the team contrived to win six matches.
This time, after three rounds of the Championship, the team have only made 300 on one occasion, and no batsman has looked remotely like scoring a hundred - the highest individual score is Will Gidman’s 89.
But two of those three games have ended in victory, including a forty-run triumph over Kent this afternoon. Just imagine what Gloucestershire could do with some decent batsman.
Gloucestershire have also made a good start in the CB40. For more photos from their victory over Glamorgan on Sunday go to http://willfinchwriter.posterous.com/photos-from-gloucs-v-glamorgan-last-sunday
