The C&G Trophy on May 5th is the chance for 'Minor Counties' such as Devon, Norfolk or Staffordshire to try their luck against the big boys of english cricket.
Devon play Leicestershire at Exmouth CC
Dorset play Yorkshire in Dorset
Is there ever a case for a Minor County to play in the top flight??

I cover county cricket in Dorset, Devon, Cornwall & Somerset and it's never dull. Somerset await Ricky Ponting for his six week spell while Jamie Cox fills his shoes for now. The english press is filled with news of potential reform in the county game, regional cricket, three division cricket, it could all be happening but for now sit back and enjoy the potential rumblings of a new transfer system for this summer in England...long live English cricket!!
oh, and who decide to play 7 one day internationals - excessive surely?? it's the first time I can ever remember the domestic season starting with the national team still away.
