Ian Bell flys out to the West Indies this week looking forward to helping England maintain their recent run of inmproved One-Day form and g]taking it on to World Cup success.

"We were delighted with the way the side came together in the Commonwealth Bank series, playing for one another and really beginning to show the talent that we know exists in our squad," Bell said.

"With the guys having a well earned break for a few weeks and with Michael Vaughan back at the helm, who knows what we may achieve out in the West Indies?" "We're all very confident that we can put up a really good showing."

Dougie Brown and Navdeep Poonia are already out in the West Indies with Scotland and Dougie also has high hopes that Scotland can perform well enough to become one of the top dozen national sides in world cricket.

At this week's Annual General Meeting, Warwickshire CCC Chief Executive, Colin Povey unveiled preliminary plans for the future development of the Edgbaston site as the Club enters its 125th Anniversary year.

The plans are being put in place to secure the long-term future of international cricket at Edgbaston. The staging of international matches at Edgbaston generates in excess of 10 million per annum for the local economy and the venue is the epicentre of cricket in the Midlands.

In recent years, Warwickshire CCC has been mindful of other developments within the cricket world. The emergence of smaller county grounds bidding for the right to stage international cricket has forced more established venues such as The Oval and Headingley to undertake extensive ground development and refurbishment in order to extend their staging agreements with the England & Wales Cricket Board.

Edgbaston’s current staging agreement expires in 2010 and the development plan aims to ensure Edgbaston further enhances its reputation as one of the premier venues in world cricket.

Birmingham City Council is fully behind the scheme as Councillor Ken Hardeman commented, “This is great news for the city as a whole. International cricket is a great asset to Birmingham and it is crucial that we do not lose such an important part of our history and sporting culture.

Colin Povey is excited for the future, “We’ve been delighted with the response from the Council and while this obviously, just the start of the process we will be consulting with the local residents and other interested parties in the months ahead. We are confident that this regeneration will provide enhanced facilities and benefit the local community."

Sort of. I think the objective is to replicate the .net facilities and community on here but without the oppressive ownership.

I notice that the Bears thread has currently been removed from the other site. All this confusion is a bit sad.... The BBC counties forum seems a long time ago......

as for the plans - well our hon finance guy (Mills) is in many ways correct - It is not good for the game if the big test venues can not upgrade because they have lost out to a field geographically in the middle of no where, a tent, a temporary stand and a failing park and ride system. If new venues want to join the party they need to build a new venue to high standards to take drive the games infrastructure forward in areas where there is enough of a population centre. What should those new ground standards be (perhaps Floodlights, roofs and 30,000 capacities for the 21st Century should be the standard for the new boys - not a tented village)? Otherwise why would traditional grounds invest ? Our heritage would just crumble away, with no real investment in the games future.

Stageing agreements should be set for 4 fixed annual Test Grounds (2 London, 1 Birmingham and 1 Manchester) which should be given 10 years to get 30,000 min capacities, 3 additional (18,000) (eg. Notts, Durham and Cardiff) that rotate them 2 from 3 on an annual basis and 2 additional grounds for ODI (Hants plus one other). That would allow for a minimum of 7 tests and 9 ODI's a year.

Driving standards forward and providing a reason for investment

Is that the stand with the old bar in it ? Certainly a good view from the gods...... although I'm not sure if its an area of Eulogisers or Visionaries..... another good location is near the press box, on a hot day with few spectators when the windows are open. A few oppotunie words often get quoted in the next days paper by some bored hack who is short of 20 words or so
