Looking through the forum I couldn't see a thread on the County Championship season that will be starting in a matter of weeks. (Apologies if there is already a thread)
As a Leicestershire fan I would like a significant improvement on last year, some of our young players would have had time to mature over the off season. We've also signed Joe Burns as a replacement for Sarwan when he's away with Windies for a large part of the season.
Elsewhere in Div 2 I fancy Lancashire, Hampshire and Essex to be the main three fighting for the two promotion places.
In Div 1 I think Derbyshire will struggle, I just don't think they have the quality required to stay up in the big boys league.
My tip for the other relegation spot it Durham - not sure why, just got a sneaky feeling they will do poorly.
Nottinghamshire have got a good team but many will be away with the England team for much of the season, so for that reason I don't think they will be pushing for the title.
I'm backing Warwickshire to retain the title.
What does everyone else think?
