Six Championship fixtures before the end of May - bring on the medium pacers and pity the batsmen. Five out of the six include play on Saturday and Sunday while the first starts on a Sunday. I am sure this will be popular and hopefully the weather will be OK. I think it is a shame that we are not playing the 50 over games at the start of the season as this year but The 100 rules!
Then the T20s start at the end of May with three Championship games stuck in the middle of them. There is a 4 day game at Trent Bridge and the next day we are back in Cardiff playing a T20. The only hope is we win in 3 days
There is then a 10 day gap with no county cricket with The 100 starting on 17/7.
The 50 over games start on 22/7/19. Two games at Spytty Park. There is then a two week gap in the middle of August when the final rounds of the RL and Blast are played so hopefully we will be in at least one otherwise it will be a quiet month.
The last four Championship games start on 23/8. For some reason the early season development of more play at the week ends seems to have disappeared with just 3 out of 16 days play at the week end.
