Royal London cup final on a Thursday.

What’s the ******** point, a great competition in its different guises over the decades and now reduced to a 2nd eleven competition with a final they’ll be praying nobody watches and will be a poor game or rained off. All so the T20 might look a bit better.

Yep, it's been downgraded to a development competition that'll be getting played at the same time as the Hundred.

No doubt in a few years time we'll get to a point where England are crap at 50-over cricket again because none of them play it and they'll wonder why, without being able to make the obvious connection.

I meant to say The Hundred

🤢🤮

I may at best tune in to watch 1 game to see how it actually functionally works but otherwise I have zero interest still. Seriously why the f did we have to try and go reinventing the game, again! I probably would have been looking forward to a franchise T20 competition even if they had separated the teams as they are now (just rename the team Western Fire).

Sadly all about promoting the 100 this summer

Not a fan of the hundred in any way however I feel bad for Abell and Byrom being dropped by their franchise, Abell particularly with his performances in T20, hope another franchise picks them up.

I'm guessing we may see a shifting of fixtures to put as many 4 day games before fans can come back? Wasn't the 2nd stage of 4 day games due to be later in the summer?

Not sure that any fixtures will be moved, and not entirely sure why they should be?

Because you can see counties wanting as many limited overs games with crowds in as possibles to make money compared to 4 day games where people don’t really turn up. So shift the latter stage of the 4 day game to before June 21st and move back all t20 fixtures

Point more being the counties have been starved of income, allow them to put on games which will attract full houses when fans can be allowed in rather than 4 day games where you're lucky if the ground is quarter full
