Looking forward to the fixtures coming out, hoping we get Kent, Durham, and Glamorgan away having not been to those grounds for a long time. Anybody on here have any inside infomation on when they are released.

It’s usually around the last week in November. I’d like Glos at Cheltenham, Sussex at Arundel and Leics at some posh school!

Ha ha! Is it true that Grace Rd is the second biggest playing area in world cricket, after MCG?

I believe it is which helps to make it one of the worst grounds in the country IMO - the wicket is too far away!

As we only play 4 teams once it would be in our interests to play Leicestershire twice with them being very poor over recent years

I believe they had another cracking season... even though Durham had a minus 40 point start..... 82 percent of championship wooden spoons this century have now been won by Leicestershire and Derbyshire.

Kent are a team I havent seen much of over the last few years.

This is a Division where Darren Stevens is seen as a demon bowler. Can you imagine how much fun Keith Barker might have?

Whatever a team's failings you have no right to diss them or continually demand their expulsion from the 1st class game

Interview with Ashley Giles here in which, amongst other things, he mentions the "closed shop" accusation.
It seems like, from February, the team will be playing/practising "outdoors" in a marquee.

At least there's some imaginative ideas there. It could all misfire badly (good luck with cricket outside in February - how many broken fingers do you think?) but we can't complain that he's not trying something new.
