IT’S been quite a frustrating week to be honest because having two games rained off in the 50-over competition has pretty much put us out of it.

Monday (against Worcestershire) was a must-win game for us and even though we could still go through if results go our way, I don’t think that’s going to happen.

We’ve not played good enough cricket and I think we’ve struggled to find the right formula for 50 overs. But we’ve still got (T20) finals day to look forward to and four massive games in the championship.

I think it’s actually quite refreshing to go back to a format of the game that you’ve not played in a little while and even though the one day cup hasn’t gone well, I still think that we’ll be up for it.

It starts again on Friday against Kent, who are one of the other teams that have a chance of going up – we play them twice, so they’re going to be really crucial games.

I think that a good win and two or three draws should be enough for us to get promoted. The top two go up and I think that we can definitely get in there.

We came down to Division Two a few years ago but we’ve always wanted to get back into the top division and hopefully we can make that happen this season – it’s a really exciting time of the year to be playing.

I know it usually happens in the one-day competition but I think that other teams fear us because they know that we perform when it matters, in the big games. We’ll be confident.

It has been a bit stop-start for me because of the (groin) injury but I’m looking forward to the next few weeks.
