County Cricket 2019 Season (with poll)

Postby Alviro Patterson » Fri Nov 30, 2018 9:34 am

It is that time of year, the ECB have released fixtures for the 2019 season and the scheduling is a bit different to other seasons.

Season starts 1st week of April with County Championship, but only for two weeks before the Royal London Cup is played 2nd half of April to 2nd half of May. Half the County Championship season will be played from Spring Bank Holiday to mid July before the T20 Blast commences during the summer holidays.

I have put a poll about the fixtures, kind of aimed at regular attendees of County Cricket but the debate is open to all. My question is what do you think of your counties fixture schedule for 2019? Will it encourage you to attend matches or the opposite?

At first glance the schedule looks pretty good this year - apart from the early start. Although at a Durham forum during the season ended it was mentioned that from 2020 the even more 4 day games will be played at the beginning and end of the season than ever. Think it's because the 50 over competition will be played at the same time as the dreaded 100 ball one.

From a personal perspective, Yorkshire fixtures for next year look more balanced than in previous seasons. Guaranteed cricket on Bank Holiday weekends, Twenty20 Blast fixtures on Thursday, Friday or Sunday and more weekend games in general. The spread of fixtures are regular, but even and no dodgy away trips to make say 36hrs after a Blast match.

Unfortunately that is the case. This Hundred ball competition will only marginalise the County competitions and affect England performances in the long term. Counties might be getting £1.3 Million a year in image rights, but memberships and matchday revenue from the county game is likely to be hit. For example full memberships at Yorkshire you need to watch 21 days of cricket to get your moneys worth compared to buying a Club Yorkshire membership (£35 for the card with 2 free County Championship games, then £10 entry).

Personality I would play County Championship cricket during The Hundred, but relax rules on signing Overseas players during the period (as well as during the IPL).

Relaxing the overseas rules during The Hundred and IPL sounds like a good idea to me. It'd help to maintain a good standard when the best England qualified players are unavailable.
I haven't been keeping up with all The Hundred details but is the ridiculous idea of having the likes of Root and Stokes assigned to teams for marketing purposes when they won't play much or at all still happening? It seemed absurd to me - any current fans of the game will know it's a farce and if the idea is to attract new fans then they probably won't gave heard of those players in the first place.

Fair play to Glenn Maxwell in opting for a stint of domestic cricket in England ahead of the Cricket World Cup and Ashes series, rather than playing in the IPL. If Australia retain the World Cup and Ashes series, it is down to those attitudes Maxwell has displayed.

If I was director of England cricket, I would withdraw all contracted England players from the IPL.

I'll probably guess Surrey as the 2nd best county team

It is no coincidence that Yorkshire is also the finishing school for international cricketers, ask Sachin amongst others :D

Indeed it is Surrey at 2nd.

Now i see why Sachin chose Yorkshire.
