After a winter of some discontent in the southern hemisphere, it may be a relief to get back to domestic matters for Englands cricketers but Ashes defeat has left Test Match selection wide open and that makes for a very exciting 2007 LV County Championship.
The LV County Championship has long been seen as the proving ground for Test Match players and it is the players considered to be on the fringes of the Test side who may stand to benefit most from good performances in the County Championship the likes of Chris Tremlett (Hampshire), Jamie Dalrymple Middlesex), Sajid Mahmood (Lancs), Ed Joyce (Middlesex) and Liam Plunkett (Durham), all of whom have worn Englands olours in Australia over the winter.
With Test Match places almost certain to be up for grabs until the first match of the summer against the West Indies on May 17th at Lords, we are sure to see a competitive start to this seasons Championship.
