Egblaston on Saturdya

I wondered, if at matches such as the ICC, when the team members come onto the site, if they can be seen and photographed, and if there is ever any chance of autographs etc!

I'm not sure precisely what you mean, but as far as I know, even given some of the hysterical security and stewarding that can exist at some major matches, there is nothing to stop you taking personal photos.

Whether players sign autographs is up to them, but you have to go and find them - there won't be a "session" for it.

Usually getting famous cricketers' autographs and photos with them is a billion times easier at a low-key county game etc, for obvious reasons.

At any matches there's nothing to stop you taking photographs. Autographs are possible as well. Players fielding near the boundary often sign autographs for nearby spectators during breaks between overs etc.

You may also catch them before the start of play after or during their practices and warm ups, or after the close as they leave the ground.

And if all that fails, Phil Tufnell will sign his latest book for you. You'd have to buy it though.

With ICC matches, autographs are very hard to get. They own the grounds for the purposes of this tournament. Last Trophy at Edgbaston was so regimented that it was virtually impossible - acquaintance of mine got thrown out for trying to get Pollock's as he got off the bus pregame - and Id imagine security will be far tighter now.

MF is right - get them at the boundary during play if you can.

Thanks for that info Kim. When I think about it I haven't been to any ICC tournament matches, only the usual ODI series. Once got a nice photo of Strauss who also gave my friend his autograph, coming up the Old Trafford pavilion steps after a match. You know, before they pulled down the pavilion and banished the players to a media centre at the opposite side of the ground with no access by members or any other spectators.

Have to say we have to hand it to mawallace. Threads started 7. Total posts 10. He may be a WUM but the threads he starts get us talking about the topics he raises, with or without his response.

As mentioned they are unusual because they pay a fee to the ground and then own it. Tickets prices (very reasonable) are set by ICC, they are sold by the ICC, club shops are cleared out and filled by ICC stuff etc...

So if anyone is cheesed off by what goes on at Edg its not #Warwicksfault - (tho probably still Trott's in some way)

So I am a Windup Merchant! I have to apologise for not taking part in the conversation! Seems unfair that ICC would clear out the club shop as well - would have thought it would have been a good time to prompt County Cricket to the masses!

Wonder how much each venue will make on the various additional sales? Good for the club, but how much will get to the rest of the game?

Seems ok to take pictures - per their terms and conditions

My apologies maw. I didn't know what to think when you have asked us some questions then not come back to see and/or reply to our answers.

I look forward to seeing you participating a bit more in future.

Probably? It will be entirely #trottsfault.

Stewarding at Headingley last week was a bit heavy handed, and provided by the notorious G4S. Their attempts at calming down some only slightly boisterous chaps (dressed as power rangers) was shouted down by those surrounding them to chants of "you ****ed the Olympics up". Defeated, they turned away and asked the coppers to step in. One wag near me said "it didn't take long for the private sector to hand over to the public one once trouble occured".

ICC can be comical. When I was in Antigua for World Cup 2007 we were allowed to take bottled water into the ground but not with the lid. With the lid the bottle became a missile apparently whereas you can't throw a bottle with no lid very well. This did of course ignore the fact we were encouraged to bring money to spend on stuff which could never be thrown.

It was probably easier to smuggle in drugs than a bottle top.
