County Championship Predictions 2019

Predictions are like arseholes – you all know how this analogy finishes.

Yes, I am waving  mine around in public again; I won’t let the fact I thought Lancashire would be title challengers last year, and Somerset relegation candidates (when it turned out to be the complete opposite), stop me.

Division 1 remains highly competitive, though there is one county that clearly stands out when we talk potential champions.

Division 2 on the other hands remains something of an enigma, at least outside of the four teams competing for the three(!) promotion places this season – it’s quite conceivable positions 5 to 10 could be completely flipped by the end of the season.

One Stump Short provides a ‘pocket size’ preview of the day:

County Championship Predictions 2018

Ever tried to sort 18 teams into an order? Relegating two of them whilst promoting two others?

It’s madness. Especially when the unlikeliest of heroes can suddenly emerge to lift a team’s season and a broken schedule can warp a team’s hopes in a spring downpour or a sudden burst of fortune on green-tinged surfaces can shift the pendulum of momentum.
