    **Official English County Cricket 2013**

    In a damning indictment on the quality of posting on this forum none of you ***** have started a thread and yet the season is under way in the UAE. The county championship starts on April 10th. Lets hope for a dry and bright summer.

    County Championship 1st division (Warwickshire, Somerset, Middlesex, Sussex, Nottinghamshire, Durham, Surrey, Derbyshire, Yorkshire)

    County Championship 2nd division (Lancashire, Worcestershire, Kent, Hampshire, Essex, Glamorgan, Leicestershire, Northamptonshire, Gloucestershire)

    Warwickshire and Hampshire were the dominant figures last year of county cricket. Warwickshire were clinical in winning the county championship and reached the final of the CB40 where Hampshire triumphed adding that to their T20 title. Lancashire and Worcestershire swapped places in the county championship with surprise division 2 winners Derbyshire and Yorkshire




    Some players pushing hard for international selection this summer:
    Varun Chopra, James Taylor, Rikki Clarke, James Harris, Toby Roland-Jones

    Some young players without much experience to watch: Craig Overton, Shiv Thakor, Olly Stone, Alex Davies, Ben Foakes, Reece Topley

    Some youngish players pushing for Lions selection: Sam Northeast, David Willey, Liam Dawson, Chris Wood, Keith Barker

    The quickest bowlers in county cricket: Mark Turner, Stuart Meaker, Jamie Overton, Matthew Dunn, Tymal Mills

    Some good young spinners to watch: There aren't any - well ok there are a few. Simon Kerrigan, Azeem Rafiq, Tom Craddock( A Leg spinner!!)



    The BBC and the ECB have come together to give live radio/internet commentary of every game this season. BBC Sport - Cricket commentaries

    Sky as usual will cover large parts of the county season. Sky Sports reveal 60 televised games - Domestic - News - ECB

    Enjoy!

    Aww man I didn't know you had to do a proper OP

    I quit
    Every 5 years we have an election and have to decide who are the least obnoxious out of all the men. Then one gets in and they age really quickly. Which is always fun to watch.

    Took an hour to do the OP, then Howe sneaks in at the last minute with one that takes a couple of minutes. Ouch.

    Merge time.

    Warwickshire doing their normal thing. Pile on massive first innings score with Chopra scoring runs. Now Wright running through the MCC. Real good team these days Warwickshire.

    Looking out my window it certainly doesn't feel like we're only a fortnight away from the cricket season

    They played today at Taunton. The legends from Gloucestershire gave Somerset a good thrashing in a 50 over game.

    Kieswetter and Buttler played with Kieswetter taking the gloves. Somerset have been non-commital on the issue so far.
