Ruel’s championship début with the first team, rather a success so far.
In the championship side this year through injury to our frontline seamers, Ruel has got to work. He has recorded 5fers in both of the matches he has played in this season.
That is a good start, dare one hope that he will improve!?

There is a picture of him here in the very white whites that England now sport. The South African Invitational XI v England XI at East London a 2 day warmup match. [This photo may possibly be by Garath Copely, PA don’t credit the photographer]
