I know Kent face Sussex five times - 2 x CC, 1 x RLC, 2 x T20. I think that's the maximum any two teams can meet in the preordained fixtures so, add on two potential knockout ties and that'd be seven.

Notts have Derbyshire and Leicestershire both 5 times. Hopefully it will just be for the one season.

I noticed that Sky are referring to the Royal London Cup games on June 13 as "play-offs" and while cricinfo's fixtures call them "quarter-finals" there are only 2 matches slated - also only 2 matches slated in the fixture list that was in the Cricket Paper in November.

Has there been a change therefore that in fact it is a play-off, presumably between the 2nd and 3rd teams in the groups, with the winners going straight on to the semis?

Did you ever find the answer to that? I've searched and can't any info on the competition format anywhere.

edit. The BBC also only lists 2 quarter finals as well. I have no idea how you search the new ECB site for fixtures beyond the next handful.

Here's the explanation:

The knockout stages have changed this season, with only the top three from each group qualifying. The winners will progress straight to the semi finals on June 16 and 17, in which they will enjoy home advantage. Their opposition will be determined by two play-offs on June 13 between the teams finishing second and third in each group – second in the North Group at home to third in the South, and vice versa.

Thanks for that. I quite like the idea of making real advantages for finishing higher.

I bet Notts finish 4th.

Or they'll finish top in the T20 by a country mile where the play offs don't happen and lose a home quarter final, again.

Some big milestones passed:

Cricket season begins this month.

Less than 4 weeks to the start (3 weeks and six days).

Less than 30 days to the start (27 days).

Obviously not so many years ago, on March 28 cricket fans would have been saying "just a few weeks to go" and many players would still be working at the town hall or something.

Several records will come under threat or be simply broken by default - earliest date for first-class cricket, first time a domestic first-class match has been completed in March, plus records such as earliest century of the season, which currently stands on March 31.

It may become generally cold around the middle of the month, with more in the way of frosts and perhaps snow, especially in the north, before turning milder later.

Towards the end of March there is a degree of uncertainty, but there is some evidence in favour of a more settled spell of weather. This could bring drier-than-average conditions, with temperatures probably around average for late March, however the confidence for this set-up is low.

We will definitely have a unseasonably warm and dry April, May & June - but the wettest July on record.
The first two weeks of 2018 will be glorious, but nobody will notice because the Football World Cup is on.

T20 Blast is such a good idea.

UK Outlook for Wednesday 22 Mar 2017 to Wednesday 5 Apr 2017:

There are currently signals for the end of March and into early April to see some kind of blocked pattern for the UK weather. This means there are signs for generally drier than average conditions and more settled weather than normal across the country.

Is the North vs South match the official start of the season?

I certainly wouldn't count it as such at all, though it's part of some sort of prelude I suppose. I would count all the matches in the UAE as being "other matches" abroad. Certainly the statisticians don't count any of it as part of the season, using "First Class Averages in England" as the definition.
