Sabres missed Trescothik experience
After suffering a five-wicket loss to Diamond Eagles in a Champions League match, Somerset batsman Wesley Durston today admitted that they missed the service of experienced Marcus Trescothik.
Trescothick returned home yesterday midway through the USD six million tournament after a recurrence of his stress-related illness.
"You always going to miss an international player. Marcus is an important player. We miss the experience he brings and his batting. We may need to reshape the batting order," Durston said after the match.
The Eagles bowlers restricted the English outfit to a modest 132 for eight wickets in the Super Eight League B match and then overhauled the target in 18.4 overs at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium.
"It's very disappointing to lose. Mathematically, now we have a chance," Durston said.
