The 2005 English cricket season started early, on 8 April, with MCC playing the Champion County, or at least it would have done if the rain hadn't delayed the start till the next day. The other games played were all between the first-class counties and university sides. The first matches showed a bumper crop of centuries, with little joy for bowlers, but there were no surprises. The MCC ended up beating Warwickshire. Away from the cricket field, on 8 April the ECB announced that triangular One Day International tournaments would no longer be played in England. On 11 April Kevin Pietersen, England's South African-born all-rounder was reported to have a foot injury that could see him miss the start of the season, and Chris Schofield began his case for unfair dismissal against Lancashire, which he eventually won. The first round of the Frizzell County Championship saw Warwickshire gain maximum points, with Hampshire also winning in Division Two. Durham replicated Warwickshire's feat in Division Two, where Worcestershire also won.show more
