Straight from the Bookies. Over winter the tracks are all going to get harder to run on but with an all weather track like the one we have got we should be able to prevail (maybe we need a new one - I'll talk to someone about that). Anyway keep those entries rolling in as although conditions might be a bit adverse winter events will happen (unless thay are too adverse and the meet has to be called off).

Insider's Advice. We leave the shorter version of the game and get into the 5 day test (although there will be awards for players of the day). This test will last 5 days (irrespective of the weather - we just add on another day). It will be important to manage your bowler rotation as you will encounter multiple pitches and multiple oppositions (some will be twice such is the draw). Be wise in your team selections as they will need to go the distance albeit substitutes are allowed.
