Middlesex's batting problems

The cause is obvious to all those who've read May's Wisden Cricketer. Richard Scott reckons that the batting coach Mark O'Neill has been coaching a grip which ' prevents batsmen from having to move their body as they hit the ball'.
'Back to the drawing board' I'd say.
But first several readers will recognise the writer of a letter on page 11. With the benefit of hindsight he's right and I'd like to think that I said so at the time but I'm not sure.

As long as Middlesex England players (i.e. the England captain) aren't affected, then he can coach whatever strange batting grip he wants! It can only benefit Sussex when they play them :-)

I'll dig out my TWC and see who's writing in on page 11....
