Ten wickets divide South and North but crowds avoid county cricket’s Dubai jaunt

The locals appear to have little interest in English cricket’s experiment in the UAE but the players are fighting for their futures – and South’s 10-wicket win over North will have given Andrew Strauss much to ponder

At times since he became the England director of cricket in 2015, it has seemed Andrew Strauss would do anything to remedy a World Cup record he this week described as “awful”. So, for reasons of climate and provision, he has brought an eclectic mix of 26 players to Dubai and split them down the middle based on the latitude of their counties. In the first game, things could barely have got off to a more sedate start, as the Southerners sauntered to the simplest of victories by 10 wickets with 99 balls to spare.

If initial interest is limited, the players are certainly taking it seriously because the management are treating it like a formal trial, an assessment of their suitability and readiness for international cricket; all week, silent judgments have been made on fitness, organisation and attitude.
