With the ground flooding seven or eight times this past winter I would be very surprised if you played at New Road before July, the target of the end of May is looking optimistic at best. It was flooded recently and Iím not sure when the spring high tide is, but if this wet weather continues then in all likelihood the ground will flood again.

A move away from New Road is inevitable which would be a great loss to cricket.

I would agree, May feels v optimistic having seen the pics last week of the latest flood.

It canít do anything for the quality of pitches for rest of the summer that the ground staff have barely been able to touch it since about October.

Also agree itíll be a loss if New Road goes but bigger picture the whole club could go if this continues every summer

It's been rain affected, but I have quite enjoyed the start to the County Championship.  I like that it has been in a consistent slot of Friday - Monday and that has made it a lot easier to follow. 

If only that consistency could continue throughout the season instead of it descending into the disjointed mess it becomes when the white ball stuff starts.

Good start with the bat again for the Bears.  Add Sam Hain in at 4 and that top order looks solid.  Hassan Ali will add to the bowling attack as well.

Pretty abject batting display from Worcestershire. Looks like a really healthy lead for Durham.

Tragic news, so young to be taken at 20. 

Thoughts with all his family & friends

Nice gesture to wear Josh's shirt for the rest of the season and doing him proud today with a solid first day performance against Kent.

...and doing him even prouder today, declared at 618, with 3 centurions,  1 in the 90's then taking a Kent wicket in the first over!

What a great unbeaten 7th wicket stand between Ed Barnard and Michael Burgess! Rescued a tricky situation batting first against Essex today. I have to say Ed Barnard is proving a great signing for the Bears!

Thoughts are with Chris Woakes who lost his father at the beginning of May and will return to playing when he is ready. Heís released a statement confirming the news and Iím sure Villa fans and cricket fans in general will give the guy some virtual support.

Going to that there Edgbaston today, for the double header.

Basically Warks (Brum) and the East Mids teams.
