For a number of reasons, 2013 has been a bit of a taxing year, but 2014 sees me embarking on a new career which should hopefully allow me to spend more time on my writing. I have lots of ideas, but sadly I haven’t yet had enough time to develop many of them, and I am looking forward to doing this in 2014.
I am currently working on an in-depth preview of the Women’s Ashes, which starts on 10th January and follows a similar structure to the Ashes series that took place in England last summer.
I also plan to countdown to the 2014 County cricket season with a series of weekly previews, each concentrating on one County. This will look back at their successes and failures in 2013, analyse the the players that have come and gone and try to foresee how they might fare in 2014.
I also want to write about a number of wider issues, such as the future of Test cricket, the decline of the West Indies cricket team and the difficult question of match fixing in County cricket.
As a Kent and England fan, I will look back on 2013 with mixed emotions, but, thankfully with my passion for the game intact, and with lots of excitement for the upcoming year.
