The sooner that the ECB get their act together and replace this out-dated relic with some form of early-season T20 tournament (Or possibly some kind of 73 ball a side slog fest) the better!

Careful what you wish for !!

Against a Durham side in turmoil and predicted to finish bottom, they still manage to dig out a defeat in the race for the wooden spoon.

The first time in their first class history that Durham have won a match after following on...

Typical quote from someone who is negative about proper cricket-  proves again why it is a great game, ebbing  and flowing and as with Yorkshire's win a side has snatched victory from the jaws of defeat

After five decades of watching championship cricket, I don't believe the 18 county model is fit for purpose... The standard of some division two teams is continually very poor.

The real negativity is from those who don't see a problem and only seem to think the problem is that red ball cricket is played in April, May and September... If you cut the number of sides down, you may squeeze the championship into 12 weeks of summer? Problem... What problem?
