Question and Answer : Englandxxx
A: Always a possibility at some point - in same way England have played in Scotland and Ireland as warm-up ODIs for home NatWest Series. But nothing factored in immediately
A: No, not yet. ECB will announce the full major match schedule for 2012 later in the year
A: Stuart Broad
A: Not sure how you expect us to answer that question?!
Q: How can I get autographs of England players at the England v Ireland 1 day match being held in Dublin August 25th for my England Cricket supporter son - in -law who is a cricketer but sadly injured for the season, coming to Ireland to watch the match with us. Thank - you
A: If you're there for the match then there are often opportunities to get player autographs on practice and match days, no guarantees though
A: New Zealand and Australia will be touring in summer 2013
A: The calculation as to the number of overs to be bowled was based on a 7pm finish as there is provision to make up an hour for time lost on that day (see 16.1.3a in regulations at First Class Regulations and Playing Conditions 2011).
Based on 7pm finish time the overs due were 48. 16.1.1a makes provision to extend the scheduled hours of play by a maximum of 30 minutes in order to complete the minimum number of overs for the day. At 7.22pm 48 overs had been bowled so play ended at that time.
As 42 overs were lost from day 1 (equivalent of 2.8 hours), play will be extended by 30 mins on days 2,3,4 and 5 to make up this time as provided for in 16.1.3b.
A: Not centrally, as in we don't send them out; so it's the same old-fashioned way of getting players to sign when you can around matches, training sessions, events etc as it's always been!
Q: I have been looking for tickets for Ireland v England in Dublin on 25th August but everywhere I try it says they are not on sale yet? Is that true and if so when will they go on sale? I hope I'm not too late!
A: Hi - don't believe they have gone on sale yet - but please contact Cricket Ireland for exact details
A: You need to know people to be able to interact with them on the service
