    Sky were showing the Essex v Warwickshire match on TV this week and working from home I saw a lot of it. Essex were dynamite and Warwickshire looked like a team accepting their fate - relegation
    Chris Woakes in particular looked nothing like an England player. No surprise Chopra did well against his former team either

    Edit - as I type Lancs have lost and Essex are champs, so congrats to them

    Very pleased and happy for a good team performance but can't say I engaged with the season much missed the summer evenings watching cricket.

    A shame two lovely young ladies who want to talk cricket and the male population here not interested, a mad world if not a mad website?

    There's always weird stuff happening at Derbyshire. Whether it's play being stopped because it was too sunny, or Tom Poynton missing the entire season because he crashed the chairman's sports car, or Shiv Thakor being convicted of exposing himself to strangers, or Peter Burgoyne leaving the county in undisclosed but allegedly similar circumstances, or... well I'll leave it there for now.

    The key thing is, Derbyshire is being weird again. With barely a month until the pre-season starts, they currently have only eighteen players on their books, not all of whom are on full-time contracts:

    :ire: :wkb: :local: Gary Wilson 05 Feb 1986 (31) 94187156


    So, eighteen is already a small enough playing squad, but taking from that the three seventeen-year-olds (who surely cannot be expected to play regularly) and that leaves you with fifteen players, including three Kolpaks in addition to Wilson and Madsen. I honestly don't understand what they're trying to do here.

    The first eleven doesn't look too bad, though there are a couple of places I'm scratching around for a player:
    1. :eng: :bat: Ben Slater
    2. :eng: :ar: Luis Reece
    3. :eng: :bat: Billy Godleman
    4. :eng: :bat: Wayne Madsen
    5. :saf: :arwk: Daryn Smit
    6. :ire: :wkb: Gary Wilson
    7. :eng: :ar: Alex Hughes
    8. :eng: :bwl: Tony Palladino
    9. :saf: :bwl: Hardus Viljoen
    10. :wi: :bwl: Ravi Rampaul
    11. :eng: :bwl: Will Davis
    But if a couple of guys get injured they've got precisely no back-up. They also have no proper spinner, but that seems to be something most counties aren't bothering with nowadays

    Another season beckons. Personally feel Essex are the overwhelming favourites this season although Yorkshire and Lancashire's batting should be really fun to watch too. Extremely disappointed with Somerset's business in the summer. It was clear that the squad needed massive upgrades yet we've bought only one high-class player in Renshaw (who replaced Bancroft). Could be a rather long season.

    Kohli's move to Surrey could be a game-changer. We could now see a lot more top batsmen in the county arena. Very nice of him to play on nominal wages too.

    Pains me to say Essex look good, Surrey should progress with Kohli and, Dean Elgar (sorry). Hope it's a good season.

    Totally unbelievable nothing wrong with the short form of the game.

    As an aside to the modern day game, thumbing through Wisden from 1875 came across this gem of a bowling statistic from Alfred Shaw in MCC’s second innnings against Nottinghamshire. Some economy rate that!
