County Cricket in 2014

It looks like Somerset and Lancashire will have another season in Division 2 next year, as the fixtures for the 2014 season have been released to the counties, although I have yet to see them published anywhere in full.

Division 1 will again have the same nine teams as last season - Berkshire, Essex, Kent, Middlesex, Nottinghamshire, Surrey, Sussex, Warwickshire and Yorkshire and the league fixtures will be all-but over by the end of June. There are two week gaps in mid-May and at the beginning of June, which could be for the Super 3s, and the first ywo weeks of July are clear of WCC games which would suggest a touring team could be in the country - no news on this yet.

We do however know that India will be in England in August which is being kept completely clear of all WCC games, although the T20 finals will be held on Sunday 3rd August 2014.

The only confirmed fixtures I have to date are for Berkshire and Sussex (email me if you have others -
