2012 English Domestic Season September 19, 2012

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.

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.
