First up, an apology to fellow Lancastrians. Last year, for the first time, I decided to start up a County Championship thread and lo and behold, Lancs only went and won their first title for donkeys years. I was away when the new season started so didnít get round to starting a new thread and as a result Lancs were duly hammered by Sussex in their opening game.
Division one looks strong this year with the promotion of both London counties Surrey and Middlesex last year. Will Lancs struggle to repeat their heroics of last season? In all likelihood yes. They have signed Ashwell Prince as there overseas player which may bolster the always potentially fragile batting line up although it didnít do much good against Sussex. At some point in the summer I think Old Trafford will become available again for 4 day games. Will we see an increase in rain affected games as a result?
So belatedly, here we go then. A thread for all Domestic County cricket for 2012, be it County Championship, Twenty20 or any other unsatisfactory one day competition. Enjoy!
