Various Cricket news

Jason Gillespie is finally taking wickets for Yorkshire.

After his recent scores of 161 not out and 63 not out against Pakistan A, Shane Watson's first class batting average is now over 50, making him a contender for the Australian middle order. His bowling, however, is not as developing as well.

Big scores have been seen all around county grounds in England, the most impressive being 309 not out by South African Test discard Hylton Ackerman.

Jim Troughton, the grandson of Patrick Troughton (Dr. Who), is not scoring enough runs for Warwickshire at present.

Ian Sailsbury, the forgotten English legspinner, is taking lots of wickets for Surrey this season.

22 year-old Victorian captain Cameron White is captaining Somerset this season, and is averaging nearly 50 with the bat. Unfortunately his bowling average is 76. FAC (Future Australian Captain) has probably been written on his locker.

Standout Aussies in England at the moment:

Michael DiVenuto (Derbyshire), 636 runs at 45.42
Andy Bichel (Essex), 12 wickets at 20.25
Mark Cosgrove (Glamorgan), 750 runs at 62.50
Ian Harvey (Gloucestershire), 479 runs at 68.42, 13 wickets at 23.76
Shane Warne (Hampshire), 30 wickets at 19.03
Brad Hodge (Lancashire), 505 runs at 101.00
Stuart Law (Lancashire), 520 runs at 57.77

Craig White (Somerset), 747 runs at 53.35
Murray Goodwin (Sussex), 912 runs at 60.80
Phil Jaques (Worcestershire), 921 runs at 102.33
Matthew Mason (Worcestershire), 13 wickets at 23.92
