Back to England and back to county cricket

No cheerleaders?

How come the rolling 24 hour news channels aren’t telling us everything Giles Clarke’s said in the last five minutes? How come Gordon Brown hasn’t stepped into the debate about possible restructuring of the county game? It’s a strange land we’ve returned to.

Following the IPL, we’ve got the World Twenty20. Following that, there’ll be English domestic Twenty20 and then the Champions League. All of those events are enticing, but not one after another. It’s also going to make following the County Championship all the more difficult.

How shall we plan the summer? What are your priorities?


Mike Gatting wasn't receiving the King Cricket email when he dropped that ludicrously easy chance against India in 1993.


Why risk it when it's so easy to sign up?


  1. My main priority is scraping together enough pennies to get to some cricket at Hove/Arundel this summer. Frankly any cricket will do, but the championship is cheaper and leaves me feeling less dirty.

  2. Welcome back. By the way, that Stickball fellow has been making a right mess of things while you’ve been out of touch, posting ludicrous articles on the IPL. You might want to consider having him shot.

  3. County Championship all the way.

    20 Twenty is fun when our season has not yet started, but by May all those maxima (DLF or otherwise) seem a bit vulgar…

  4. ‘Fess up. The real reason you’re having trouble dealing with the County Championship is because Rob Key is averaging about 5 with the bat.

  5. My priority is to go and see Scotland play in the Friends Provident and the ODI against England.

    I think it will be funny.

  6. I’m funny how, I mean funny like I’m a clown, I amuse you? I make you laugh, I’m here to xxxxx’ amuse you? What do you mean funny, funny how? How am I funny?

  7. I’m rather concerned about the grocer’s apostrophe in “DVD’s” on the advert which is ubiquitous on the site. Although I understand KCs desire to make some money out of the site, there are certain standards to be kept up.

  8. Yes Smudge we must certainly keep up standards. Perhaps starting with a possessive apostrophe in “KC’s desire”?

  9. I have fallen foul of the rule that, when being a smart arse, get it right. I am humbled.

  10. KC’s back! As in, has returned. This isn’t a comment about him having
    anodysing whatever-you-call-it of the spine. Although, we haven’t had that joke on here for ages.

  11. Anklosing spondylitis. Great obscure King Cricket joke reference. Full marks.

    Glad you’re back too.
