Is the implied criticism of Tom Abell fair?

For me, Tom Abell is an excellent captain of the Somerset team on and off the field, yes he has been through a difficult period but appears to have come through it. He leads by example!

Is the implied criticism by Jason Kerr, justified - in my opinion it isn’t, others failed to capitalise on the the position after the first innings .

Looking through Twitter however (yes I know what Twitter is) some neutrals do question his captaincy ability especially in regards to the England role.

1) he is not aggressive enough after a wicket is taken / breakthrough?

2) he sometimes is too defensive preferring to save singles than pressure lower order batters

3) his bowling changes are sometimes questionable

Is this where Jason Kerr was coming from - what do you think?
