With the start of the County Championship only two days away, thought it was time to start a new thread !

I see Morne Morkel has signed a two year "Kolpac" deal at Surrey, will he give their bowling attack a "shot in the arm" or are his best days behind him ?

A shot in the arm possibly, much as I hate the whole Kolpak concept.

TC is at the IPL and is then likely to be with England for the white ball side of the summer, at least. Sam is therefore the leader of the attack with backed up by the inconsistent Meaker with Rikki Clarke as 3rd/4th seamer. Jade doesn't suit red ball cricket and Matt Dunn has gone backwards.

Somerset have signed Aussie Matt Renshaw. Have to confess I don't know much about him.
Decent signing IMO and only 22. Opening batsman who can play a long innings as well as changing up through the gears. Will not be available for about 6 weeks from the end of June though.

Born in Yaaaarkshire. :(

Talksport have won the rights to live commentary for the winter tours of Sri Lamka and West Indies. :(

I know this is the 2018 thread and 2020 is 2 years off, but what do posters think about the new city based franchise competition ? Clown outfits, custard pies to throw, 100 ball innings with a 10 ball final over.

As far as this particular curmudgeon is concerned they can stick it all where the sun don’t shine.

Curmudgeon number three! I won't be taking much interest in the doings of Bristol Bashers or Southampton Sloggers.

Stay in the bar until those last 10 balls are due to be bowled.

Will Surrey have to play in Guildford as Guildford City? Will Pompey supporters boycott Southampton Sloggers? Will Middlesex get the right to be London Lions?
