Good point. While it would undoubtedly benefit Yorkshire, I'm not too comfortable with Sky picking our team just because we're on tv, IF it happens.

The Lord moves in mysterious ways, Seadog.

Seriously, though: Sky lobbying the ECB to change its position on JB and Root, against the wishes of the England coach, who, in turn, had a week ago got his way against the wishes of YCCC. I think the Americans call it 'jumping the shark'.

Here's my Back To The Day Job post after all the stuff I've hit on re new T20 & Player Availability.

For those able to attend Lord's for the Middlesex game next week. Here's a plug for the 2016 Lord's Beer Festival.

https://www.lords.org/lords/things-to-do/lords-beer-festival-2016/

Now, the Ball Sup Army know the problem with Beer Festivals in cricket grounds. Most Counties are tied in to a single Pouring Partner Big Industrial Brewery. With the notable exception of the Kent CAMRA Festivals at Canterbury & Tunbridge Wells, choice is limited to a single Brewer & their offshoots.

But, gift horse and all that. At least there might be a bit more variety in styles, if not Brewers. Anyway, it's an initiative I'm going to support ..... enthusiastically.

I'm giving no guarantees - but my reading is....

There's gonna be some Beer set up in The Harris Garden. If you've paid to get in the ground, you can just walk over there & fill yer boots.

Anyone want any hints or tips about good beer things to do in London - give us a yell.

Anyone with any hints or tips about good beer things to do in London - get 'em posted.

I blame the ECB ...... etc.

Another piece of good news, at least for the OAPs going to Lord's, is that admission is £8 per day, except for day 4, which is free.

That's £24 to watch the entire game, assuming always that Middlesex stick to their usual prices. Contrast £21 x 4 days = £84 at the Ageas bowl, for which greedy Hampshire deserve to be relegated, and I hope they are.

Peter- yes, there is a restriction on day usage of the floodlights too, please see details below. I think if they nominate a day and don't actually end up using the floodlights it still counts towards the quota.
