TEAMS

Dominic Hewson would be right to feel perplexed at Gloucestershire's decision to release him. The 27-year-old right hander had struggled initially to come to terms with first-class cricket. Remarkably successful for the second team, Hewson did not play with his natural aggression when given the chance to step up.

Despite his problems, Gloucestershire stoically and admirably stuck with him. In 2000, it appeared this loyalty was correct. Whilst not taking the club by storm, he batted confidently, scoring heavily through the off-side, particularly in one day cricket.

With Tim Hancock and Rob Cunliffe largely away from the action this year, Hewson was given the chance of an extended run. He batted well, making a thrilling 168 against Derbyshire and another ton against 'declaration bowling.' An average of 35.47, was higher than that of Matt Windows. His one day form was not so impressive. Even so, he had made advances. Still, the club saw fit to dispense with him.

With the talented Kiwi batsman Craig Spearman joining the club through the back door as an EU national, and Hancock likely to be in the running next year, Hewson may be better off at Derbyshire, where he seems guaranteed a first-class place. The move to such a weak club does perhaps suggests that Hewson doesn't have the hunger to take his game to the next level. (Sean Beynon, Copyright CricInfo 2001)
