The entertainers in the rain
County cricket endured its wettest season for 100 years but BBC Sport's Kevin Howell says on his blog that every week brought a special story as he picks his team of the season.
Picking my team of the year is a job I almost hate because difficult choices have to be made and deserving candidates have to be left out.
This year no Derbyshire player gets in - although Martin Guptill and Tony Palladino and Ross Whitely came close - despite the story of their promotion being my favourite of the year.
And I have not found room for anyone from Sussex even though until the last few weeks they were challenging for three titles - Chris Nash and Steve Magoffin are especially unlucky.
In the end, I have gone for players who entertained me the most.
