No Ashes Test will be played at Durham for the foreseeable future

 

The English Cricket authorities have long term contracts with Lords, Oval, Trent Bridge, Headingly and Birmingham - - the only one that is a bit dodgy is Manchester IIRC

Right, firstly I'm NOT a trekky you set of bastids. Secondly, I don't remember playing cricket at Anselms, but obviously things got a whole lot posher when it changed to Thomas Moore! But anyway, who can afford to take the 18 months holiday that is required to watch the thing?

If you don't like it don't watch it. It's not the sport of the privileged though Renton.

We played indoor with the nets out, just bowling and batting, despite my protests. I always wanted to be David Boon when I was a lad, so I used to stand with my hands in my pockets, occasionally shouting 'come in' and eating pies.

headingly is a right shithole. no suprise it's struggling to continue hosting tests.

 

durham is a nice ground but it needs some bigger stands if it's ever going to become a first class test venue.

 

i like the new stands they've made at trent bridge. lords has the tradition but edgbaston and the oval arethe best for atmosphere.

 

i at edgbaston for the final morning of the ashes test last year. it was unbearable but the atmosphere was different class. it was more like football than cricket.

The Oval is a bugger for getting around behind the stands tho'

 

They've extended the ground right up tot eh wall almost and its areal scrum trying to get a drink

 

I liek Trent Bridge mesel - Headingley IS a dump and Lords is full of wankers

Tests have been mainly rotated around 6 grounds for years now and continue to be.

 

Rose Bowl is in the queue before The Riverside tbh.

It's not actually, the Riverside is already a test ground, the Rose Bowl isn't.
