    Has the world gone mad?

    Hard to believe that York hasn't staged a first class fixture since 1890.

      I was going to say that I don't remember York being part of the circuit before (nearly) everything fucked off to Leeds.

        This calendar was quite helpful. I thought that, if anything, hosting a World Cup (from 30 May to 14 July) has actually improved the flow of the domestic season. Though I'd have been tempted to move the Championship's 13th game even later so that the final four matches are all closer together. (The Blast has a weird schedule too, mind you.)

          Essex to reclaim the crown, with Cook breaking 1500.

            Essex go yellow with their new T20 Blast kit. I like this.

              I'm quite excited by all this. I booked the 11th off work yesterday so I can go and watch Surrey's first game.

                Surrey going well against the MCC in Dubai, 389-4 after MCC made 265 in their first innings, Pope (183) and 18-year-old first class debutant Jamie Smith (123) still both not out..

                  Very tempting to down tools and leg it out of the office at this point. Cook is playing against Cambridge MCCU a couple of miles away...

                  (Nick Browne is out already!)

                    Pope made 251. Great stuff. 23x4 and 6x6. Surrey 520ao. MCC going well in their second innings.

                      Fenners in March just feels wrong

                      Matthew Engel looks older than 67 in his rather unflattering profile photo:

                        It's cold, grey, early April and the pitches are puddings.

                        Let's get this thing started.

                            Who are Somerset going to finish second to this year?

                              Surrey probably, Essex hopefully.

                              James Vince making a positive start for Hants - there's someone with his eye on one of those England opening places in The Ashes.

                                Luis Reece of Derbyshire was out to the first ball of the new season.

                                  Not Warwickshire.

                                    Iím going to The Oval next week for either day 1 or 2 of the Surrey v Essex match. Which will be nice for a Middx fan. Didnít catch any action at all last season. Will keep an eye on the weather before deciding which, but at the mo the forecast is chilly & cloudy but dry both days.

                                      Either all the MCCU matches should be first-class or none of them should be (my preference). No reason why Haseeb Hameed's 218 this week shouldn't count towards his average when Ben Duckett's 216 last week counted for his.

                                        Much excitement all around the country on the last day of the opening fixtures of the County Championship.

                                          A bit of a queue to get into the oval this morning. I may not be wearing enough layers.

                                            If you can carry an unbroken partnership over between matches, Ballance and Root are currently on 366

                                              Lot of runs around today and a fair few tons.

                                                Billy "Joe's brother" Root with an impressive 126 on debut for Glamorgan.

                                                  Two other Glamorgan players with tons. Some going.
