Championship fixtures are out - first game for us is away to Derbyshire on April 5th! Then at home against Sussex the following week.
And later on a nice trip to Southport for the Championship match against Lancashire. :scared

We miss out on Glam and Gloucs(A) and Lancs and Middlesex(H)
No Wood in last 2 Lions 1 day games so presumably injured again.

That'd be typical if he is injured yet again.
Annoying to miss out on the first two teams but might be handy to avoid the other two.

I'd forgotten about him. I bet our batsmen haven't, :facepalm

:scared Has he not been fast-tracked into the England side by now? I thought they were going to amend the rules - with a bit of luck he'll be in the IPL and miss our first game against them, it's the first home one so surely he won't be there.

perhaps no Jordan either

then we only need Ollie Robinson to go down with a heavy cold just before the match starts and we'll be in with a shout.

Yep! The signings we made have obviously strengthened the side and county cricket is very unpredictable but my instinct is we'll be a decent div 2 side but probably no better.

Hey D/F we stuffed Sussex in the CC at the Riverside in September. No problems.
Abbas will be involved with Pakistan until at least July 5th-we play Leics 7th July!, return on August 18th.
Not surprising because of the World Cup very few 2nd div. sides have signed an overseas.

just noticed we have 2 games in the second half of May, 4 games in June and 2 in July!

crumbs.... cricket in the summer.... feels radical

we might have to prepare a dust bowl for August and let loose all our spinners :coat

Yes the CC games are spread evenly across the summer which begs the question why hasn't this been the norm in the recent pass. No doubt CC will be further marginalized when Graves' folly kicks in. I'm convinced that will have a short lifespan but not before that Yorkshire megalomaniac has bankrupted cricket.
