The Future of County Cricket
If only the ECB could realise we do not want a second competition. Market the Nat West Blast in the way Surrey have and it could become the most successful financially outside of India.

Running a national T20 competition can be ruinously expensive. 
The ECB says "let's have two."

Why not reduce it to that used in rain affected games - T5 or go one better and use that used in tied games - T1.

It will end up with - win the toss, win the game

Yes, reductio ad absurdum as they say in the Hollies Stand.

From memory, there was a finals day a few seasons ago where both semis went to a T1 knockout... if I remember correctly a six off the final ball set up one of them. Excellent day... happy memories.

Considering the obvious difficulties that County (and to an extent international) teams face trying to get girls to come to T20 cricket, let alone county championship games, I think that Warwickshire and co should all take note of this girl. She manages to pick up quite elegantly all the issues surrounding the bears this season and gives a great indication of how clubs can integrate the young audience into the club in a friendly, positive manner. Posts such as these give me great hope for the future, knowing that the membership is in safe hands.

I agree with this.
I believe that she has met with some of the key people at Edgbaston who read her blog and were impressed.
Also, I am hoping to get her to write something for Deep Extra Cover.

Thank you all for such lovely comments about my blog and the 2017 cricket season post.
Fingers crossed for a more upbeat post next season about the bears, and if you want to check out the new blog layout & name then please feel free to as I have attempted to make it more cricket based - http://emsviewfromthepavillion.blogspot.co.uk/
Thank you again, look forward to next season...in division 2..woooooo..:(

Em - your eternal optimism is a lesson to us all!
Someone said that optimism is fine so long as you don't get your hopes up but at this stage of the year, it's good to have total optimism about the Bears in 2018.

I'm not really sure...I just do! Makes a nice change I think from a big stadium, same with Kent & Derby. Feels like proper cricket!

I agree about the change from stadiums. Because the playing area is one of the biggest in the world I just feel you sit so far away from the wicket.

Interesting item from Somerset:
http://www.somersetcountycc.co.uk/news/c...statement/
Despite the denial that Somerset are now opposing the new tournament, it is clear that ten counties have written a letter to the ECB which presumably at the least expresses reservations about the effect that the tournament will have on those counties.

Fancy running the new T20 competition?

It says you will need "University (or equivilent level) qualification"; but ability to spell is obviously less important.
