Quote from: Harry Badger on May 27, 2022, 11:41:09 PMIn the last two decades or so, the usual practise has been to have the lesser Test series first and start it in mid-May, with the feature series starting in early July. This has gradually eroded with increased amounts of white-ball cricket and money-spinning ODI tours by Australia. We are playing the Dutch at some point this summer in 3 ODIs - why not Ireland or Scotland? Anyhow. I got into cricket in the early 90s - this was the itinerary of the first series I watched: http://static.espncricinfo.com/db/ARCHIVE/1992/PAK_IN_ENG/ And that was a pretty modest tour by the standards of thirty years prior. I agree, it's hard to give a fuck now. The World Number One test side coming over (like they did last year) to play two test matches (like they did last year), India somehow allowed to play a test match they should have played last year or forfeited. The South Africa series I am looking forward to more because after several years on the register, they do now appear to be solid men with healthy sexual interests.

Not that it is hated or disliked, I think more people would follow it if it received attention. There should be a weekly CC match screened on terrestrial TV throughout the summer.
