Genuinely good news. Although, as someone else posted about Brett Hutton, why do they call everyone an all-rounder?

Tend to agree with the overuse of the term all-rounder although in Luke Procter's case I think it is justified, looking at his record. We badly needed a genuine all rounder as we only really have Kleinveldt IMO, if we discount Crook, who has been very much in decline the past 2 seasons. To be considered a genuine all rounder I think a player should have a minimum of a batting average over 25 and a bowling average close to 35. Too many supposed allrounders today only really meet one of these criterea.

Welcome aboard Mr Procter!
