When I asked for some input in to further things we could do on the blog during the non-England periods, or when finding something to say proves difficult, one of the ideas that I quite liked was the “Open Thread”. A post where you can post anything on cricket in the comments.
I don’t want this to be a lazy “here’s an open thread so do your thing” type affair. I’ll tie it, if it proves successful to a week’s fixtures, and so given the start of the County Championship on Sunday and the IPL on Saturday, this seems an ideal time to give it a go.
County Championship – Division One
Durham v Somerset
Hampshire v Warwickshire
Nottinghamshire v Surrey
County Championship – Division Two
Essex v Gloucestershire
Northants v Sussex
Worcestershire v Kent
Then there is the IPL and the competition kicks off on Saturday with KP’s Pune team in action against Jos’s Mumbai (if he gets a game!)
9/4 – Mumbai v Pune
10/4 – Kolkata v Delhi
11/4 – Kings XI v Gujarat
12/4 – Bangalore v Sunrisers
13/4 – Kolkata v Mumbai
14/4 – Gujarat v Pune
15/4 – Delhi v Kings XI
Also, feel free to comment on anything else unrelated to our posts. It’s all in your hands whether this works or not!
On other matters, I will have a lot of spare time at the end of May/beginning of June so will look to update The Glossary. Any suggestion of definitions will be welcome. Where’s Phil A when I need him?
