Q: What advice can the ECb give to local Cricket clubs in SE England regarding the watering of their cricket squares? We are increasingly concerned that our own square has been devoid of water for some time, grass has not grown as it should (and has in the past) and local water company's are threatening to impose further regulations. Can the ECB negotiate on our behalf and /or offer some help? Dave Gracey Frindsbury CC (North Kent)

A: Hello Dave. This is a situation ECB is aware of and is currently in discussions with the appropriate authorities as to the nature of 'water bans' and their appliction with regards to sports venues. We can't negotiate directly with your local water company on your behalf; although we would suggest that you make contact with them by yourselves or with other clubs from your area/league to see what you can negotiate.
