Pre-season
#1
It's that time of year when county squads head off to exotic lands.
For example, Worcestershire are off to Abu Dhabi and Sussex are going to Cape Town.
As for the Bears:

It's my understanding that the cost to build, heat and manage the marquee that has been put up for practice on the number one nets site, combined with the army boot camp, is not that much different from the total cost of a pre-season tour to the Caribbean or the UAE.  The Cricket Management Team think that playing on UK grass wickets in February and March could well be better preparation for an early start to the County Championship season, as opposed to last year’s trip to play in the Emirates T20 tournament in Dubai.
It will be interesting to see how early season form pans out between the exotic travellers and the marquee men.

I know it's a friendly, but Derbyshire have scored quite quickly against our pace attack this morning! I had hoped to pop along this afternoon after work but the weather forecast is looking slightly ominous!

The pitch is over the Pershore Road side of the ground with a fairly short boundary.

The wicket-taking ability of the bowling attack is however a concern for this season. Can our attack bowl the opposition out twice on enough occasions to win a sufficient number of matches to finish in the top two for promotion. Nottinghamshire, Worcestershire and Northamptonshire, last season's top three all won at least 9 matches out of 14 last season.
