County Cricket 2016
 
So we can discuss Finch to Surrey, Ford leaving etc in correct place.

Kentish people, feel free to tell us how Stevo is getting on too.

Anyone know if Kevin Pietersen is playing for Surrey in this year's Blast?

If so, Surrey with KP, Aaron Finch, Dwayne Bravo, Jason Roy and Azhar Mahmood are going to be exciting to watch.

Not sure if Finch and Bravo will ever play together.
Finch is signed to cover Sangakkara whilst he is playing in CPL, which Bravo will be at too.

I assume KP will be playing there too, so may only appear for part of Surrey's season.

they will play together in the 20/20 matches.

Finch is cover until the 2nd July so will play the first 5 20/20 matches I think.

According to Surrey website, Finch starts on July 2nd, and Bravo is signed for June.

Looks like there are 6 T20s in June and 6 in July, so plenty of opportunity to see either of them (and Sangakkara) but not at the same time!

An article in the Whitstable Times today suggests that Kent have offered a 6-week contract to Kagisho Rabada for the start of the season.

Very interesting, and during the recent SA/Eng series, kept thinking to myself that he'd be an excellent bowler in Championship cricket in April/May. Looked as though he could bat a bit as well.

Come on you Kent :lux:

Punishment for destroying England.

4-week contract confirmed for Rabada but not until the end of June, primarily for the T20's although there are 3 Championship games in that spell.

Surrey have appointed Michael Di Venuto as the new head coach

Ruskin Old Boy 22-02-2016 06:26 PM

Unfortunate that he won't be taking over until the beginning of April.

Interesting appointment! know him as a player but not as a coach. Does anybody know if he is experienced as a coach and with whom, and if successful.

Beckenham Boy 23-02-2016 01:06 PM

After signing Rabada for July, Kent have followed that up by signing New Zealand Opening Batsman Tom Latham for the whole season. He has scored 3 Test centuries in 17 Tests played to date and can also keep wicket.

3 Beers at HT 23-02-2016 01:07 PM

^^^^^

Beat me to it :p

aj4england 23-02-2016 01:13 PM

Latham is a solid signing yet still fits in with Kents youth policy (he is only 23), Rabada is only 20

Wolfnipplechips 23-02-2016 01:26 PM

Both too good for div 2.

Surprising lack of ambition from the players.:D

Smiffy swears by him.

I now work in Beckenham, so can get to the Kent ground in Beckenham really quickly.

Would I need to be a member to get tickets or can I turn up on the day/evening and buy tickets?

There's two games at Beckenham that look good here: http://www.kentcricket.co.uk/fixture...ixtures?page=2

Any advice would be appreciated.

No membership required to buy tickets, you'll have no problem turning up on the day to pay on the gate but there is a free print-at-home option online, whereby you save 25% compared to the day price.

E.g.

NWT20 v Gloucestershire: 22 before 5 pm the day before. 30 at the gate.

RL One-Day v S****y: 17 before 5 pm the day before. 25 at the gate.

Thanks.

Where did you see the ticket price, I couldn't see it anywhere, just membership packages?

CPFC_DAVE77 25-02-2016 09:38 AM

Ignore the above post - worked it out (what a div)

Thanks all.
