OUR game against Kent last week ended up being pretty exciting and we went into the fourth day knowing that all results were possible.

It was brave of Kent to declare when they were behind but in the end, we just fell two wickets short of getting the win.

Sometimes, when you draw a game like that, it can feel a bit like a loss.

Luckily, results still went our way in all of the other matches and one win will still take us up to second in the table.

But after our game against Gloucestershire this week, there are a few weeks until the next four-day game because of the start of the Twenty20.

We didn’t play well in Bristol (last month) and we need to show Gloucestershire what we’re all about this week.

We need to show them that we’re a good side, which I’m sure they know already, and hopefully we’ll pick up a good result.

The young 15-year-old lad (Matthew Fisher) made his debut for Yorkshire at the weekend and he would have loved it – but the hard work comes after that.

After playing for a little while, other people begin to figure you out as a cricketer and you have to cope with that, which can be really difficult.

I remember making my debut when I was 17 at Headingley.

It was in a side captained by Shane Warne and I was up against players like Michael Vaughan, Inzamam-ul-Haq and Darren Gough, so it wasn’t the easiest of debuts and it rained for the last two days.
