Countdown to the 2012 fixtures announcement

Better start this, as I today read that the counties have already been given draft copies to assess and then it is also a matter of Sky's say in which domestic games they wish to televise.

The 2011 fixtures were released on December 14
The 2010 fixtures were released on November 19
The 2009 fixtures were released on December 18
The 2008 fixtures were released on November 14
The 2007 fixtures were released on November 16
The 2005 fixtures were released on November 12

Based on that info, November 10 or 17 would seem to be reasonable dates to expect something.

I'm always impatient to see them so I can find out whether Surrey are due to play at any grounds I've never visited before. Little chance of that this time. Of our Division 1 opponents only Middx, Sussex & Lancs used any outgrounds for CC matches this year unless I'm very much mistaken, and I've already been to all the Middx & Sussex grounds. Edgbaston and Old Trafford must have changed substantially since my last visits (2007 in each case) so it will be interesting to do those again if I can. I always enjoy going to Worcester, and I'll try to get to Taunton next year too.

Probably less chance of any outgrounds being used for T20 now there are only five home fixtures per county instead of eight.

Hopefully it will be mid-November rather than the week before Xmas. Last year, KCCC offered a discounted membership to those renewing before 31st Dec and it was seriously getting to the point of "well, are we going to get a fixture list before parting with our dosh?". Modern life is rubbish - I remember the days of picking up the following year's provisional list during the penultimate game of the season.

Anyway, I'll be hoping that the relegation of Yorkshire will bring a Kent or Essex fixture up at Scarborough - surely the best away trip on the circuit? I'd also warmly welcome a game at Colwyn Bay. Oh, and at least one home Championship match between 1st June and 10th August, ie the summer, would be nice, cheers.

Obviously the advent of promotion and relegation means the fixture planners now have to wait until those issues are settled before they can get started.

Have Glamorgan ever played a southern county at Colwyn Bay? It always seemed to be Lancs, and more recently one of the Midlands counties, so probably Yorks next season?

Middlesex and Sussex a couple of times, also Worcs. It's crying out for a visit from the sunny far-South East.

Not definitively, no. Though tickets are probably on sale for the fixtures already, you can go on individual countys' websites to find out dates.

My guess would be Yorkshire ... we played at Colwyn Bay a couple of times in the 2000's. The reason is simple ... Glammy are more likely to get bigger crowds if they play a 'local' club. There was a large Yorkshire contingent at both matches (although I only attened on the first year).... one mate tells of chatting to a Glammy member. My mate had taken just under 2 hours to get to Rhos-On-Sea from Yorks, the Glammy member took 5 or 6 hours from Cardiff.

I've bought Headingley test match tickets but have no idea when the other games are!

This is true...but I think all those months of short days and wretched weather play a big part in making the cricket season extra special when it finally arrives. It wouldn't be quite so precious if it were an all year round event like the football season has virtually become.

Maybe you should ask Chris Adams if he remembers who put Glamorgan in at Colwyn Bay
and conceded 700+ for 3....its blotted from my memory

Finally....a proper tourist match for Kent - and it's over a weekend. That could turn out to be the pinnacle of my season.

So it isn't just the BCCI arranging pointless ODI series, it's basically everyone and especially the ECB despite the line fed. Could have cancelled those ones with Aus and had two more tests with SA? Oh wait that would actually not be devaluing test cricket. And two tests between SA and Aus soon? What fun.

That England schedule is appalling. Five days between the last WI and first Australia match, and nine between the last Australia and first SA match.

I know it's wishful thinking, but I'd like to see the ECB stick two fingers up to the rest of World cricket and tell them England won't play 50 overs ODIs from now on, you can just carry merrily on without us and we'll stick to hosting Test series because they work in this country.

13 ODI's for England at home next summer. I wouldn't say it's wishful thinking, more like deluded, ECB is firmly set on the money spinners despite what many England fans want to think. If this was the BCCI doing this, there would be threads of India ruining cricket of course.

I've banged on about this stuff, but when you feel like you're talking to a wall one starts to give up hope.

They said they would do something about back-to-back Tests, but we still have them.

They said England would stop playing 7 match ODI series - so now we just have more series instead.

They said that England would "never again" face the sort of schedule that saw them play the away Ashes, followed by ODIs and straight into the World Cup. Why then do England barely have chance to draw breath in the whole of 2012?

Besides this, if you've managed to get used to the era of your county heroes making just fleeting appearances once they become England regulars, get ready for that to become no appearances. They'll still be in Sri Lanka when the county season starts, and the sausage factory of fixtures at home starts in May.

To think that there was once a time when the summer schedule could readily consist of 5 Tests and 3 ODIs with just one team visiting.

Looking forward to seeing a fair bit of South Africa on their tour. Will certainly try to see a day at Worcester, the one-day game at Bristol (first tourist game for Glos since 2000) and a day of the Lord's Test. Think I'll miss West Indies and Australia.

Nice to be able to put a couple of dates in the diary!
