Worcestershire coach Steve Rhodes says it is increasingly hard trying to keep a lid on the growing clamour for his teenage wicketkeeper Steve Davies to be given an England call-up.
Since becoming a first-team regular with Worcestershire less than 12 months ago, Davies's stature has grown rapidly.
There is growing excitement within the game that England may at last have discovered a 'stumper' who can not only bat but keep wicket too.
The Kidderminster kid's name has been mentioned increasingly in England circles, fuelled by continued question marks raised against Geraint Jones, since Davies's career-best 192 on the doorstep of David Graveney, the chairman of selectors, at Bristol two weekends ago.
Although Rhodes, a former England keeper himself, has known about Davies's potential for almost a decade since he took his first step in the county's youth system, he believes it should be only Worcestershire who benefit for now.
"I'm very cautious about talking anyone up," Rhodes said. "It can put people under pressure, let alone someone who's 19 and only just starting in the game.
"If he was selected for England at this stage he'd not let them down. But, if he was selected in 18 months, maybe after the World Cup, he would be in a better state to cope.
"It would be good for him to do a bit of an apprenticeship. He's a natural gloveman but he has to make mistakes to learn. And I think England will stand by Geraint Jones, certainly for the Ashes.
"I'm pretty sure Duncan Fletcher [England coach] would love to have as many of the Ashes-winning guys in Australia as he can. The media hype about changing keeper could be tenfold and I don't think it would change Duncan's mind. But after the Ashes, if Geraint hasn't had the best of tours, that could be a time for change.
"Geraint kept really well in the last Test but he knows he could have kept better over the past 18 months."
Davies's form has been solid since the inevitable happened and he was given the nod at New Road over Jamie Pipe halfway through last summer. But it was his call-up for England A duty in the Caribbean last winter as Chris Read's stand-in that caused the bandwagon to accelerate. Rhodes points to the young left-hander's easy batting style as his most eyecatching feature, even likening him to the great David Gower.
"His batting is quite graceful," Rhodes said. "A bit Goweresque in that he times the ball rather than thrashes it.
"Because he hits in such a relaxed way, it looks awful when he gets out sometimes. He could hit through the covers with no feet movement and everyone would say what a great shot, nick the next and everyone would say he's lazy. But that's exactly what Gower was criticised for."
It was Davies's big partnership with his skipper Vikram Solanki at Bristol that put him on the map. It has been all smiles ever since flaming June burst spectacularly into life, the sun started shining on English county cricket - and Worcestershire remembered just what the winning feeling was like.
That run-mountain against Gloucestershire was followed by another in a match-winning effort against Somerset at Taunton. Then came Sunday's Cheltenham & Gloucester Trophy win over Warwickshire at Edgbaston.
Now, when his side resumes Championship duty against Essex at Chelmsford today, Rhodes' only tough decision is who to leave out.
Matt Mason is fit again and Kabir Ali will expect to return after being rested on Sunday. But, with Roger Sillence having taken a career-best seven for 96 at Taunton and Gareth Batty taking six second-innings wickets, second spinner Ray Price (match figures of one for 100 against Somerset) is at risk.
