I suspect that Sajid is right to be fearful about his future at Old Trafford. He was picked for England before he had really learned his trade with Lancashire - a point I made several years ago. Unfortunately he has made no real progress since his early years and has never gained the control necessary for a top class bowler. He gives away far too many runs which makes it a mystery to me why he is being used in the 40-over game where a few loose overs can cost the match. I would be very surprised to see him playing in the t20 competition which will only add to his feelings of frustration. All in all, I feel that his only hope of staying in first class cricket would be to transfer to another county.
