Hampshire may be looking for a new captain this summer.

Former Aussie One-day skipper George Bailey, who not only led them in 2017 but was top Hampshire scorer in most formats, is suffering from back problems and says at 35 he no longer has the energy to meet the demands of an English county season.

He is under a two-year contract, though, and Hampshire are keen for him to return - so it is all in the melting pot.

I see the three most expensive England cricketers at the opening IPL cattle auction are all from the Second Division - Ben Stokes ($1.95m), Chris Woakes ($1.15m) and Sussex`s Jofra Archer (1.125m).

Out of Somerset`s first four county championship opponents, only Moeen Ali and Jos Buttler have been bought and will be unavailable, although that could change if Joe Root and Jonny Bairstow are more successful in the second tranche of bids.

It shows how closely I keep up with the county scene these days that I was unaware of Archer before the IPL auction.

I was slightly surprised that Jeffrey Archer had been chosen, but my lightning-quick brain soon realised that his reverse sweep wasn't good enough for the IPL and that it was some other Archer.

Jeffrey Archer's sweep is better described as underhand rather than reverse...

White lipped warhorse Peter Siddle has signed for Essex's early CC games, so we will avoid him.

England cricketer Ben Stokes pleads not guilty to affray.

That means he will be tried at Bristol Crown Court at some future date. He has to attend a preliminary hearing at Crown Court on 12th March and maybe on that day a date for the trial will be set.

I think it will be difficult for him to resume a full England career until the Crown Court trial is over, though he may appear in some one-day matches before then.

A bit unfair on "Gentleman" Jeffrey LOL - after all, we all assume that it was Mary who knew where the "bodies" were buried, and "Gentleman" Jeffrey did the time!! Allegedly!

I thought when it was first reported Stokes and one or two others were, allegedly, defending a couple of blokes from a homophobic attack. I reckon he may well be found not guilty!

Don't think the law works like that.

Whether he's found guilty or not of whatever, the footage of the incident shown on TV at the time tells me that he is guilty of behaviour unbecoming if nothing else.

England do not have to pick him again ever and I hope they do not. From his days as a player for England Under 19 he has always had disciplinary issues. Kick him out and kick him hard as he appeared to do to some poor bloke on the floor in Bristol. Let him bide his time in the murkiness of Durham or in the hot spots of India.

Ben Stokes, I salute you. (Sm44)

Regardless, both glasses need filling up.

Six Tests a year, half of them in London. Throwback to the old days and traditional grounds with no Tests in Cardiff or Southampton. Edgbaston retains its stranglehold on the (old) T20 Finals day, and qualification for the 50-over final earns you a trip to Trent Bridge. The new T20 venues for the Big Dosh League are the expected 8.

Underwhelmed.

Does that mean we have to pay for floodlights for the World Cup next year, then not switch them on again for at least another six years, and probably never again?

T20 new comp. games at Cardiff ?????

Even if they give tickets away the place will be empty & the atmosphere about as exciting as a damp cardboard box.

What a dogs dinner.

Makes you weep.

A total disregard to the other 10 or so counties.All the gearing up done by Mr Cooper in anticipation of getting a share of the new T20 competition, and one day internationals totally out the window.
There will now be no need to separate membership into 2 categories in the future,as no one will pay to watch a second rate competition.
