‘The Cricketer’ reports today rumours of the Championship being reduced to just 12 games from 2021.

Just sad.

How the hell can 12 games work with 10 first division counties? These people have no brains to speak off.

Uhhh easy........7 city based championship teams playing home and away.
The remaining 12 teams playing each other once with no promotion.

Aren't there 8 'city' based teams? Aren't they not all in Division 1? Is that expected to change in 1 year without prior notification?

They can do whatever they want it seems........ I expect they will change it to an english CC , and then they can get rid of Glamorgan as well.
I expect Somerset, Essex and Kent will get relegated because of their pitches...

I look at the food analogy a different way;
50 over cricket is the perfect starter.
For main course the County Championship.Get as much of it as you can!
20/20 for dessert. Take it or leave. A full member might find just enough room to have most of it.
The hundred. All that's just a tiny chocolate with your coffee. Probably best to leave it altogether as it will just make you sick!!!

It's only a tiny, little, thin one

The Hundred is that bowl of peanuts on the bar when you order drinks. You see some people, who weren't planning on eating, dipping mindlessly in them. Then you tell them that studies have shown on average each bowl has seven different types of urine in them.
