It could be said that those deducted slow over rate points were a blessing in disguise, based on the evidence of what we have seen so far in 2018!
Levi, at least, needs to be included with Newton and Duckett as, apart from his failure yesterday, he got a good one from Sidebottom (he probed superbly) in the first innings just as he was getting set.
Rather like England, despite the individual skills of the seamers, our bowling is somewhat one-dimensional right arm fast-medium, lacking the variety that a left armer would bring to the attack. Keogh's inevitable limitations as a spinner are being ruthlessly exposed, making him incapable of holding an end over longer spells, thus allowing the seamers to bowl in rotation, as was the case for the opposition with Patel.
Hopefully, Durham will allow us a degree of relief, following the admittedly tough start, before it's Warks again... on their own patch!!
