    Which County do you support

    Hi guys,

    Really want to put some more attention to County cricket this year so want to collect as much info as possible.

    I started following county cricket last season, a bit late, but enjoyed it to the fullest.

    I support Surrey as I'm a big fan of Mark Ramprakash and Kent.
    A friend of mine's plays for Kent Uni and is a big fan of Kent, he infected me with the virus.

    Any ideas, suggestions or remarks are welcome.

    Cheers

    Yorkshire is France, never been able to understand someone from yorkshire with the accompanying accent

    erm..I guess i'm an Essex supporter, since I toured there and RtD plays there...

    Yorkshire due to being brought-up there (Northumberland where I was also brought-up are a Minor County, as are Devon where I've lived since the age of 11). Also have always had soft-spots for Surrey and to a lesser extent Kent.

    Not sure what Murali has to do with this, but yeah Mushy was a big part of the reason. Imran loved playing there as well.

    Kinda Yorkshire, but in a very, very, very half-arsed way. As a man of Cambs I'm a cricket fan without portfolio, really. Lived in Yorkshire for 3 years tho, so sort of adopted them.

    Soft spot for Essex too, as they're my "local" county.

    Essex are my 'local' County side given I'm from Suffolk, but if I'm honest I've always had more of a soft spot for Hampshire. I've always liked watching guys like Pietersen, Warne, Mascarenhas, Lumb, Carberry, and Cork; and with this years signings of Jones, Ali, Mendis, McKenzie and Afridi they're going to be good to watch next year too.

    Good old Sussex by the sea!

    It's where I was born and grew up and have always supported Sussex since the days of Tony Grieg (when I was basically a toddler) and later Imran, Parker, the Wells brothers, etc. The last few years have been unbelievable and we've had a lot of fine players, Mushy outstanding among them.

    I now live in work-induced exile in London but get to Hove as often as I can, which isn't as often as I'd like.
