Looks like one of those frustrating days when everybody goes through the motions, knowing the weather is on the way and a complete washout is almost the certain outcome.

Sadly true - at Birmingham and virtually everywhere cricket is being played tonight.
The same seems to be the case for Sunday as well.

I can live with it if everyone else gets the same weather and a point each especially with us ahead of the rest. Sunday is disappointing though. Was looking forward to another trip to Trent Bridge.

Plunkett back in the squad is good news for us. Should strengthen us, if we play.

The weather is one of the major factors against having blocked competitions. A poor spell like we are having now and three or four matches can be rained off. Unlikely to happen if the matches are played weekly.

This, along with finance problems for perhaps 2 or 3 home matches in a week for a family of four, are the two major reasons for a preference, for supporters, for an un-blocked competition, as last year.

The crowds at all three home games in the past week were healthy, so I'm not sure that argument stands up. As for the weather, a three hour t20 game is far less likely to be affected than a championship game. Tonight is just one of those things but Sunday looks like sunshine and showers situation.

Despite Yorkshire's healthy crowd against Durham there is some evidence that the blocking of the competition is having a negative effect outside London. It's difficult to say, definitively, whether poor weather has been an equal factor but, clearly people are choosing which game out of three in a week to attend.
At Trent Bridge, after an excellent 14,000 crowd for the first game, the sequence of three in a week resulted in disappointing crowds of six to eight thousand. For the past two years, ten thousand plus has been the norm.
Somerset are getting attendances of 6,000 rather than 7,000. Northampton and Sussex are also experiencing some decline.

Whatever the truth of the matter, it seems clear to me that blocking fixtures leaves the programme more vulnerable to bad weather, confuses the customers who prefer a regular pattern and requires most families to make hard decisions about the budget.

The players and counties wanted a block because they didn't like switching formats Mon to Thurs Cc, T20 on a Fri/Sun. Left them no time to practice T20.

At the half way stage in the North group only 2 matches have been lost to the weather. Any matches lost over this weekend would have been lost under the old format anyway.
