So sense prevailed.  No one saw any advantages in a reduced program of first class cricket, preferring the more obvious trimming back of limited overs matches, which have proliferated recently.

Championship division one stays as a 9 team concern and the Championship stays as the fantastic 16 match per season event that we know and love.

Would have been mad, having just produced an away Ashes winning England team, also presumably Counties would have risked a lower income from reduced memberships which include Championship matches but not T20.

The ECB have listened…. I’m nervous – this is a new thing, surely that can’t last can it?

But while they are at it….. Summer [and weekend] Championship cricket …..Please?????

  1. Well thats nice. Aus cricket is apparently set to undergo a radical change by mortgaging themselves to create a club T20 league separate from the state system. Is there long term interest in watching slog and giggle? Who knows.

  2. Are the still going to cut the number of Sheffield Shield matches?

  3. Not sure but if they do they are just threatening the strength of the FC system and test team, although considering they develop so many T20 style players now they might think its progress.
