Looking forward to Lord's
While the debate rages about whether the England selectors have picked the right team for the first Test of the summer, you'll be pleased to know there is little controversy about our squad for Lord's.
Leading our commentary team as usual will be cricket correspondent Jonathan Agnew, who will be joined by Christopher Martin Jenkins MBE and the voice of West Indies cricket Tony Cozier.
Our expert summarisers at Lords will be the irrepressible Geoff Boycott, Phil Tufnell, who knows a thing or two about bowling at the home of cricket after his long Middlesex career, and Sir Viv Richards.
Viv enjoyed an eventful winter as part of the TMS commentary team. In Jamaica, we heard his excitement as England were bowled out for 51; in Antigua, we saw his understandable anger over the abandoned Test at the ground which bears his name and then in Trinidad, as the West Indies nervously hung on for a series-winning draw, Viv simply could not watch the climax to the match and instead stood at the back of the media centre listening anxiously to the roars of the crowd. Let's hope he's calmed down now!
On top of our ball by ball commentary we will be profiling England's new full-time coach Andy Flower during the lunch interval on Wednesday and among our guests will be the man who brought Flower into the England set-up, former coach Peter Moores.
We'll also hear from Ravi Bopara and Alastair Cook who have played alongside Flower at Essex and will now be playing under him with England and we'll be joined in the commentary box by Henry Olonga, who joined Flower in a black armband protest against the political situation in Zimbabwe during the 2003 World Cup.
During the lunch interval on Thursday we will be hearing about two forthcoming cricket based documentaries.
Actor Colin Salmon, recently tipped to be both the next James Bond and the next Dr Who, will be at Lords to tell us about "The Empire of Cricket", a major new BBC programme looking at the history of the game in England, Australia, the West Indies and India and we will also be hearing about a forthcoming film documentary, "Out of the Ashes", which tells the incredible story of the Afghanistan cricket team who recently against all the odds came close to qualifying for the 2011 Cricket World Cup.
For our traditional "View from the Boundary" on Friday, Jonathan Agnew will be joined by a man who will probably rather enjoy a relaxing day out at the cricket, the executive chairman of Marks and Spencer, Sir Stuart Rose.
As we know it is not the easiest time to be a top businessman and Sir Stuart will be giving us an insight into his current challenges and, of course, will be talking about his love of cricket.
During the lunch interval on Saturday, England's victorious women's team will be parading their World Cup trophy around Lord's and we will be taking the opportunity to celebrate their achievements and ask what the long term affect of their success down under will be on the Women's game in Britain.
Former captain, now the ECB's head of the women's game, Clare Connor will be joining us along with current skipper Charlotte Edwards, Wisden Cricketer of the Year Claire Taylor and other members of the winning team.
You'll be delighted to know that Jonathan Agnew and Geoff Boycott's now legendary "Test Match Special podcast" will be back after each day's play. The interactive scorecard running alongside our commentary will be available again as well as the text commentary - all the details at bbc.co.uk/cricket.
We will, of course, we welcome your e-mails and texts to the programme, email@example.com or text us on 84040 and there are lots of other ways to stay in touch with the action from Lord's. Arlo White will be joined by England's most capped player Alec Stewart to provide updates every 15 minutes on BBC Five Live and David Garrido will be broadcasting live from the ground for Radio One.
This promises to be quite simply the most exciting summer in English cricket history - and it all gets underway at 1045 on Wednesday morning on Five Live Sports Extra, Radio 4 Long Wave and online. Don't miss it.
