Every game will observe a minute’s silence in memory of the Queen today, with players wearing black arm bands. Here is a tribute from Northamptonshire:
Northants today host Surrey, where the Queen was patron up until the turn of the century, when she passed the patronage on to the then Prince of Wales, now King Charles. The Queen was also the patron of Lancashire CCC – though she never visited Old Trafford.
The County Ground: Northants v Surrey
Edgbaston: Warwickshire v Somerset
Headingley: Yorkshire v Essex
Grace Road: Leicestershire v Durham
Lord’s: Middlesex v Glamorgan
Hove: Sussex v Worcestershire
Good morning! Surrey on the charge, shoot-out at Lord’s and more.
