Rawlins Coach Ramprakash Happy With South Start

Mark Ramprakash led the praise for Delray Rawlins’ South teammate Nick Gubbins after the Middlesex opener hit a century to maintain the South’s dominance over the North in the first match of this year’s Caribbean series.

“I wouldn’t put Gubbins or DBD in the mould of say a Jason Roy,” said Ramprakash, the England batting coach who has taken the baton from Paul Farbrace to take charge of the South in this year’s series, with Andy Flower as his assistant.

“These guys are slightly more orthodox – batting first they assessed the wicket, and I thought they played really good cricket shots. They were perhaps helped by some inconsistent bowling by the opposition but they pounced on it – any opportunity to score, and they just built the partnership beautifully.

Gubbins was unable to field as a result of cramp, but is confident that he will be fit for the second game of the series on Wednesday, again at the Kensington Oval – when the North need to end their four-match losing run to avoid being condemned to a second consecutive series defeat.

“It’s not so much an injury – my body just went into spasm,” added the 24-year-old left-hander, who scored a couple of half centuries on the recent Lions tour of West Indies, after making 68 against a Perth Scorchers attack including Mitchell Johnson in December.

“The batsmen coming in made a massive difference – Sam Northeast, Laurie Evans coming in and taking the pressure off me by playing their aggressive games, and then Rawlins as well finishing off the job with John Simpson. Although I’m the man up here today, it was a real team effort with the bat – don’t forget Daniel Bell-Drummond who got us off to an absolute flier.

It was a mixed day for Rawlins, the Bermuda-born Sussex all-rounder who was watched by his family, and produced the most audacious batting to make 53 from 41 balls, only to drop Clarke and Davies at slip off consecutive Curran overs.

But he still made quite an impression on the watching cognoscenti, whether Ramprakash, Flower, North coach Paul Collingwood, director of England cricket Andrew Strauss, or selectors Mick Newell and Angus Fraser.

There were no mixed reviews from Gubbins, who said simply: “Delray was sensational.”

Sussex Follow Rawlins Progress in Barbados

As www.islandstats.com reported too late last night to be copied, Delray Rawlins scored a half-century while representing the South in Barbados.

Although they’re missing out on the Sussex squad’s tour to Cape Town, don’t feel too sorry for Laurie Evans and Rawlins as they are still getting a dose of pre-season vitamin D as part of the South side taking on the North in Barbados.

The first match of the three-match one-day series took place at the Kensington Oval on Sunday. Both Rawlins and Evans contributed with the bat as the southerners recorded a 63-run victory. Coming in at number four and with the score on 186-2, Evans was expected to maintain the impetus of the South’s innings, which he did by scoring 28 at around a run-a-ball. He and Rawlins put on 24 for the fourth wicket before Evans was caught off the bowling of Keaton Jennings. Rawlins powered on thereafter, plundering 53 off just 41 balls and helping the South to an imposing total of 347 all out.

Rawlins’ whose family had made the trip from Bermuda to watch him – was then the most economical of the South’s bowlers, conceding just 27 runs from his six overs of left-arm spin.

He had a mixed time in the field, dropping two catches in the slips, but making partial amends when he caught Adam Hose off the bowling of Essex’s Paul Walter. The North-South series continues on Wednesday.

Rawlins Guides the South to Victory

Delray Rawlins and his England South teammates, who are determined to maintain the dominance over the North established in a 3-0 whitewash in Dubai and Abu Dhabi last year, flexed their muscles with a convincing win against a Barbados Cricket Association XI at the Kensington Oval.

Captain Sam Northeast and his former Kent teammate Daniel Bell-Drummond were both given the Alex Davies treatment by their coach Mark Ramprakash, after making 73 and 52 respectively, and youngsters Rawlins and Ollie Pope then knocked off the remaining runs – with Rawlins hitting a huge six over extra cover in the direction of the Garfield Sobers Pavilion.

Earlier, Essex teammates Jamie Porter and Paul Walter had each taken an early wicket, and Sam Curran also bowled a lively new-ball spell.

Middlesex youngster Tom Barber, who like Walter and the North’s Zak Chappell has earned his place in the series after impressing on the Pace Programme this winter, also made a breakthrough, but it was his county teammate Ravi Patel who earned the best figures, in a tidy and probing seven-over spell.

Rawlins was asked by www.islandstats.com about adjusting to the different conditions, “That's what it's all about being a pro cricketer being as adaptable as you can.”

Rawlins Countdown To North-South Series

The countdown to the 2018 cricket season moves to Barbados this week as 26 of England’s most talented white-ball players including Delray Rawlins prepare to renew the North-South rivalry.

The second North-South Series will be staged in the Caribbean, with the North aiming to bounce back after the South completed a 3-0 whitewash in Dubai and Abu Dhabi last spring.

The three-match series will be followed by the MCC’s first-class four-day fixture against Essex, the winners of the 2017 Specsavers County Championship, at the Kensington Oval as the culmination of a spring festival of English cricket in Barbados.

Andrew Strauss, the ECB’s director of England cricket, said: “We introduced the North-South Series last year as part of a concerted attempt to emphasise the importance of 50-over cricket in the countdown to staging the 2019 ICC World Cup.

“The series was successful in a number of ways, allowing players to press their World Cup claims in front of the England selectors and management – and also re-enforcing the importance of the Royal London One-Day Cup through the link with the PCA’s MVP rankings.

“This year’s series was always going to be a little different given the schedule of the England team which means Trevor Bayliss and Paul Farbrace are both in New Zealand.

“But the appointment of two members of the England coaching staff in Mark Ramprakash and Paul Collingwood to take charge of the teams underlines that the stakes will again be high for the players selected.

“The selectors have also made a deliberate decision to include some younger players who have impressed on our International Pathway, whether recent graduates of the Young Lions, or from the Pace Programme and Overseas Placements – looking beyond the 2019 World Cup towards 2023.”

The first two games of the series will be staged at the Kensington Oval, on March 18 and 21, with the third match switched to the Three Ws Oval on March 23.

Each team will have a warm-up game on March 15 – the South will play a Barbados Cricket Association XI at Kensington Oval, and the North will face familiar opposition at the Three Ws Oval from Northamptonshire, who are also in Barbados preparing for the season.

Both teams have been forced to make a late change to their squad.

Gloucestershire’s seamer Liam Norwell has been ruled out of the South squad by a hamstring injury he suffered training with his county in England. He has been replaced by Ravi Patel, the 26-year-old Middlesex spinner.

The North have called up Matt Critchley, Derbyshire’s 21-year-old leg-spinning all-rounder, to replace Paul Coughlin, the Notts all-rounder who suffered a dislocated shoulder in the last match of the Lions’ one-day series against West Indies A at the weekend.
