I went to Chelmsford for the first day against Middlesex, and the ground was gratifyingly busy. It wasn’t full, but there were a lot of people there. Sure, the weather was good (too good in fact, I had to bug out at tea time due to a massive headache - and I had been sitting in the lower tier of the Tom Pearce for most of time), but even so, it was really busy. Definitely puts to bed any notion that the public don’t “get” 4-day games.
