Looking forward to the ashes although I will be in Turkey and Bulgaria for the first two tests.

We have a good bowling line up if they stay fit.

Anderson, Broad, Curran jnr, Woods, stokes, archer, plenty of youth and experience.

Only worry is the top three. Need them to regularly get 100 on the board before root comes in. Root, bairstow, Roy stokes all coming off the world cup in good batting form.

Warne suggested Roy and bairstow open in the ashes. Not sure about that. If it came off it would be brilliant but I suspect Warne has suggested that because he knows that they would be cannon fodder at test level.

Your point on crowds is interesting. Surrey fill the oval for T20 because people are able to go after work. The 50 over format is usually held on weekends or at worst day night format enabling decent crowds.

However the county game is generally midweek and daytime when most potential viewers are at work. Many will not take time to watch. Maybe more county games should have the first two days on a Saturday and Sunday and the the last two days day nighters. Changes like this would bring in more people. However fitting that in with the one day format would be difficult.

There's no simple format. Personally I would like to see the county game split into three leagues of six teams played over five days. To emulate test format. The winner of each format plus the best runner up play off for the overall County champions.
I can't agree with this. Adding 14 days extra (a fifth day for each of 14 games in Div 1) County Championship days for each team will just create additional fixture congestion & not get more punters through the gate.

Rather than see CC games extend to 5 days, we'll see Tests reduced to 4 day games. The Eng/Ire test next week is only scheduled for 4 days. In the late 70s & 80s, over 75% of Test went to a 5th day. Since 2000, only 58% have.

I'd assume AEF meant playing the other 5 teams, home and away, over 5 days would result in less days than present, i.e. 10 matches x 5 = 50 days compared to 14 x 4 = 56.

Regionalising the 3 groups of 6 along the lines of the original T20 would also reduce travel/logistics problems that the counties pipe up about regularly.

Of course - that would make much more sense, logistically - cheers for clarifying for me.

I'm still not convinced that CC needs to be extended to 5 day games. Better scheduling (with more play at weekends) would help for starters. This summer's timetable has been awful although I appreciate that's somewhat because of the WC.

Yes, you got me..There are far too many draws in four day cricket, very often rain hit games. A fifth day would create more wins and less draws.

It would get players thinking in terms of five day strategies.

If regionalised it would be less distance for away supporters to travel.

28 results (8 within 3 days) & 12 draws in CC Div1 so far this season.

Got tickets direct from the oval for this a couple of weeks ago. It’s worth checking the resale section of the site if you want tickets.

I don't know what thread to put it in so I will use this one.

In the Ireland test match next week does anyone know how many overs are they playing each day? Is it the usual 90 or are they playing more because it's only four days?

Sorry but the World Cup is Mickey Mouse, pretty much anyone can win a game on the day ,of the main historical test sides. Obviously that's the case else the Aussies wouldn't have won so many. No, in all seriousness, as someone who went to Aussie in 1992 for it, seeing us win in Sydney (saw Mark Dennis on the way in ) it is still not all that. Smaller than having Fleetwood win the golf today for example. The Ashes is way more important. Proper competition.

Because England have finally got the monkey off their back of never having won an ICC 50 over tournament, until now and considering the next WC is in India, which will heavily favour the Asian teams, I will just take winning this WC over the Ashes.
Not saying I don't want us to beat those arrogant, sledging, cheating gits but if it does go tits up, we will have that feeling of, at least we won the WC.
Be lovely if we ended up triumphing in both, though.

There is a generic ‘Cricket Thread’ where the Ireland Test is being discussed.

But actually, what a great idea in terms of preparation for the Ashes. Play against a load of blokes who are desperate to beat you & will give you a real test. Better than playing The Duchess' Invitation Second XI, eh?

I'm just hoping there aren't too many fractured fingers or 'broken ******* arms'

The fact it has happened twice since he first did it (the forecast) should not be overlooked.

Maybe he is not quite as confident this time around then?? Never known him short of a word or fifty

1st Test at Edgbaston could give us an ideal start before handing you your customary win at Lords.

Has anyone asked him? It was something that came up in interviews previously.

Can we stop playing anyone at Lords please. Get beaten there far too often.
