Re: 3 conference County Championship

Further details in the Times today. The 18 counties would be split into three six-team conferences of roughly equal strength, with the teams playing one another home and away. Depending on their final positions in each of these groups after ten games, the counties would then be divided into three further conferences and would play the other teams in that conference just once. Points from the first ten games would be carried forward and added to those gained in the final five matches to produce a full 18-team table at the end of the season.
It is proposed that the winners should get £1m split between the club and the players, and there would be prize money down to 15th place.
This seems to me an inspired idea. It maintains the eighteen counties, it leads to more competition, it avoids play -offs, and could rejuvenate First Class cricket.
