Warwickshire have...at Rugby. Glam won there!

Glamorgan played Warwickshire at Swansea...in the early t20 days more outgrounds were used. Perhaps a continuation of the Totesport and counties trying to generate more revenue at hq.

Northampton played in Bedfordshire at Luton and Buckinghamshire at MK. Also Derbyshire who went to Leek in Staffordshire.

Surrey took their first 2 matches in 03 to Met Police cc in East Molesey. Middlesex play at Richmond. Last year Surrey were at the Oval one night and Glam played Middlesex at the London Welsh ground in Richmond.

There are 6 counties never had a home outground game...
Hampshire
Durham
Somerset
Notts
Leicester
Essex

To think Sunday League cricket had plenty of outgrounds across the country, there's not many left and fewer in t20s.

Going to big test grounds has its place..as do outgrounds which should never be lost to the game.

I know that this thread is about T20 but Notts have started to use Welbeck for a 50 over game or 2 per season. For someone who lives on the outskirts o the city it is a bit of a pain to get up to the North of the county on a Sunday but it is well worth it and I've started to really look forward to it in the calendar. For any outground 'collectors' I'd recommend a visit.
