Proper cricket

PostMon Mar 23, 2015 2:15 pm

The 'English' season started yesterday with the traditional MCC v Champion County game. In Abu Dhabi.

Anyway, the first ball of the season took a wicket and pretty soon the England captain was back in the hutch. Yorkshire are batting now and Adam Lyth has scored the first century of the season.

Strange how some sports are very territorial about where games are played and cricket will move games to the middle east at the drop of a hat

makes sense having it somewhere abroad like UAE to make sure it can be played

Indeed. It's a 'traditional' fixture. The season is starting is earlier to accommodate the T20 nonsense. The county championship starts at the weekend and England have just started a tour abroad :|

The joys of central contracts. Technically some football teams could be in the same boat as counties in 2022 as not all football will shut down for the World Cup.

Great start to the season by Yorkshire.

Interesting to see what will happen if Dizzy goes to England. Would like to see Langer come in if that happens.

Up and running again already. County Championship started yesterday. The mighty Yorkshire aren't under way until next weekend.
