New County Championship Starts 8th April 2021 Empty New County Championship Starts 8th April 2021

Full Story is at BBC Cricket website

The 2021 County Championship season will start with a full programme of fixtures on Thursday 8 April.

Essex, county champions in 2017 and 2019 and Bob Willis Trophy winners in the shortened 2020 season, start at home to Worcestershire at Chelmsford.

Somerset, runners-up two summers running and losers in the BWT final, are back at Lord's to face Middlesex.

The 10 rounds across three groups run to 14 July, then there is a break until the divisional stages on 30 August.

That will be to accommodate the delayed start of the England & Wales Cricket Board's new men's and women's competition, The Hundred.

When the first-class season resumes, the top two counties in each group will go into the six-team Division One for the four-match divisional stages.

The other 12 first-class counties will go into Divisions Two and Three - also six teams in each.

The winners of Division One will be crowned as county champions.
