Only one game lost a day to the weather in the opening round of County Championship matches and all six were played to a finish on the final day. In other words, an excellent start to the new season.
While Joe Root's unbeaten century for Yorkshire in their draw at Trent Bridge will make the headlines, with Gary Ballance also reaching three figures, Hampshire and Somerset are setting the pace in Division One following contrasting victories over Essex and Kent respectively.
In Division Two, East Midlands teams made the best possible start, with Leicestershire and Derbyshire both victorious, and an unbeaten 160 by Middlesex and England's Dawid Malan earned them a draw at Northampton - and provided more good news for national selector Ed Smith.
Thanks for your company over the last four days. We'll be back at 10:30 BST on Thursday for round two.
