Well it looks like we're going to get some cricket...

SCCC

Format(s) still to be decided, as for spectators who knows?

All sorts of implications spring to mind.

Well there is going to be a limited press coverage. Not sure if the local press will get accreditation but the ECB are only accrediting 12 outlets for national coverage it seems. I would expect crowds to be severely limited simply because of the logistics and manpower a county would need for that. More likely to stream.

While in principle I am pleased that Ms Connor is to be MCC President, I cannot forget that she was part of the tripartite Axis of Evil that robbed Somerset of twelve points last year.

It would be interesting to know, if county cricket had been due to start on 1st July, and Leicestershire been due to play at home if the game would have been permitted to proceed. For example, Leicester's hotels have been required to remain closed for another two weeks and non-essential travel banned.

Oh my God, I have found something to agree with Jacob Rees Mogg on. Can i recover from this? where can i get help? Will my friends desert me? Will my family still love me? I'm an emotional mess here!

I doubt they'll expect supporters will be travelling Farmer. Getting players on the pitch maybe. 'Filling' the stands.... highly doubtful.

You are a disgrace, Railboy, but so, alas, am I. If only the aforesaid would leave politics alone and just talk about cricket...
