BBC ready for Twenty20 bonanza
And with the potential pot of gold that could come with qualification for the lucrative Champions League, this is a really important few days for five county sides. I say five, because of course there is some unfinished business before finals day.
One of the few positives to come out of England's four-day demise at Headingley is that we are able to bring full commentary on Five Live Sports Extra of Tuesday evening's much-delayed Twenty20 quarter-final at Chester-le-Street.
It's been a strange few days for Durham. They were originally due to play Yorkshire until that game was controversially postponed at the last moment following an argument over the registration of a Yorkshire player. Then it looked like Nottinghamshire would be Durham's opponents, until an appeal led to Glamorgan being surprisingly given a quarter-final place instead.
The match will be a great opportunity for Paul Collingwood and Steve Harmison to remind the selectors of what they can do, and they will be joined in the Durham side by former South Africa captain Shaun Pollock - fresh from the TMS commentary box. Even if the Test match had gone into a fifth day, we'd agreed to let Shaun go and play in the fixture.
To be honest I am not sure there are many other members of the TMS team who could play in a major fixture 24 hours after a Test commentary. But I do have to report that although Shaun may be in great shape, he has not been able to resist the odd slice of cake which has kindly been sent to us over the past couple of weeks.
Whilst Pollock is moving from the commentary box to the playing field, Australian bowler Jason Gillespie is going the other way for Tuesday's match. Glamorgan have decided to leave out their Ashes bowler for the fixture, but we are delighted that he will be joining us on Five Live Sports Extra instead. Gillespie will be joined in the commentary box by England and Lancashire batsman Mal Loye, one of the country's top one-day batsmen and master of the slog sweep off any kind of bowler.
Coverage starts Tuesday evening at 1715 BST on Five Live Sports Extra.
Then whatever you do, don't miss our commentary on Twenty20 Finals Day live from the Rose Bowl on Saturday. If you've heard our coverage before, you will know that our commentary on this special day is a little different.
We have broadcasters not only in the commentary box, but also out on the boundary edges and in the players' dug-out as we bring you our unique '3D style' coverage. It will be dynamic, dramatic and at times dangerous as the ball lands inches from our brave boundary reporters, especially if the likes of new Twenty20 star Graham Napier get going.
Coverage starts on Five Live Sports Extra at 1115 for the first semi-final between Essex and Kent - shortly before that, listen out for first news of the squad for the third Test. Will Darren Pattinson keep his place or are the likes of Harmison and Matthew Hoggard on for a recall?
Before that, from 1800 BST on Five Live you will be able to take part in a special Cricket 606 with Mark Chapman and Phil Tufnell.
Tuffers will be with us throughout the day as part of a commentary team which also includes Mark Pougatch, Arlo White, Alison Mitchell, Kevin Howells and Simon Hughes plus Essex and England fast bowler Alex Tudor and England spinner Graeme Swann.
And make sure you are listening throughout the day, because as well as all the cricket action don't miss our now legendary commentary on the mascots race, this year with a very special twist!
