Vince’s Riposte!

When National Selector Ed Smith paused or possibly terminated James Vince’s England career, he said the following of Vince: “His cricketing history has not produced the runs he should have done. He has not defined enough matches…”. Well Vince defined the One-Day Cup semi-final against Yorkshire yesterday. His magnificent innings of 171 meant that the visitors were never really likely to get close to the home side’s mammoth total.

Remember that when Vince was dropped by England at the start of the summer, he had just made 201 not out in a First Class fixture against Somerset.

Will Vince ever again be presented with the opportunity to prove his worth at the highest level? Another ton on the big day at Lords will surely increase the Hampshire skipper’s chances.
