Finals Day
#99
The game has changed. Memberships have been declining for many years (certainly before the start of this century). My estimate of 180,000 county members in this country is probably now on the high side? The group of those who have views on the game marginalised…. Sadly to the powers that be an irrelevance. Sky and the corporate boys pay the piper…. and the hundreds of thousands who buy tickets. My company spends a lot of money on corporate entertainment at Edgbaston. It is sad to say, but they are not interested in 4 day or 50 over county cricket. They are only interested in T20, Thursday and Fridays at the Test and certain ODIs. In reality it is getting harder for them to get people into some of the ‘lesser’ tests and may cut back in that area. They want something that is an event, people there and the best players… they want to entertain their clients. I remember many saying that T20 would fail nearly two decades ago … well attendances continue to grow, with many counties depending on the revenue. Both county and city based T20 will do well in this country. We all have our views … probably all are valid…. But a schism is happening for many reasons in the game … money being the main driver.... so yes, like it or not, T20 is the present and the future..... it funds the game.... lets hope we can support the longer format with the money.
