County championship cricket 2019 - division 1

It is here. A rainy horrible day, but it is here.

Enjoy everyone.

Just 16.5mm of rain overnight at Taunton and I am going out on a limb to suggest it is not a great drying day.

Never had any issues with Notts' Live Streaming service last season. Looks like they have changed providers this summer and it's not as reliable already!

That'll be Brexit's fault NE, nothing to do with the provider.

James Vince begins his campaign to bag an England openerís berth by taking three fours off fellow hopeful Jamie Porter. Despite my Essex affiliations, Iím rather hoping Vince exceeds my expectations of a boundary laced 72.

Do you think he can control himself enough to make it as a Test batsman though So77? He has the game but not the concentration from what we've seen thus far.

Bopara > Vince

Thatís always been my worry too. Heís 28 now...is that too late to change if, indeed, concentration is one of those virtues one has such control over?

It’s good to have cricket back, even if the weather is not cooperating at Taunton.

seems like a genius decision by Patterson to bowl first. Is it a strange modern fad or what?

It's rare you bat first at Trent Bridge in early April. Can't blame Patterson too much, the suggestions are that Mullaney would have done the same.

The BBC report states that Vince played across the line to Bopara; this would have been on the stroke of lunch so, suggestions again of a wavering of concentration. He left Sam Northeast, who has developed into a very fine builder of innings in recent years, to take advantage of the surface - 94* overnight at a decent tempo.

How on earth did Northeast reach 29 years of age? It was only yesterday that Wealden judges were naming him Kentís most talented schoolboy cricketer since MC Cowdrey.

Great to see another young player doing so well for Notts. Another one off the conveyor belt.

From an England perspective, great to see young players want to move to a bigger county to compete for honours in division one, rather than have their game atrophy in division two.

I agree. It is a pattern we will see more and more as the hundred takes off. The test match grounds will throw cash around to make it even harder for the smaller counties to compete. They will have to keep producing home grown players and hope to get enough from them before they get signed by one of the big boys. I know I get stuck on here about it but Somerset haves system to be proud of these days. Could easily pick the following at some point this season which is 9 who played age groups.

It will be ligitmised by transfer fees. This is the way it is going and as a supporter of a competitive small county it makes me a bit sad. https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/t...ches-lq20n7zsd

It was originally hoped that this would be one of the consequences of the move to two divisions - that the cream of talent amongst the smaller clubs would gravitate towards the stronger counties. It has been happening increasingly over the past two decades, although itís taken a while for the culture to develop to one in which almost every young player at a small club is now seen as a potential mover.

With the change next year to ten clubs in Div One - presumably featuring almost all of the big city clubs - it may be that the two divisions project will have fulfilled a large part of its goal.

Good for Somerset. I think they are an example to other small counties about how to successfully run a club.

With regards to players moving, transfer fees etc, I always find it strange that sports people are expected to suffer employee rights and benefits that most fans wouldn't accept in their own job. If a player wants to move county for better opportunities, chance of winning trophies, playing for England or pay that should be his perogative.

With 2 division cricket the top clubs have become a self perpetuating elite, able to poach the best players from the other counties. Preferred it when it was more equal.
