No income to pay our cricketers.
No hundred money.
No ECB handouts

Let’s hope and pray we are one of them!!

Or maybe not?
I think we'll see some cricket, maybe no CC but hopefully we'll see some money spinning T20 later in the summer.

So when we go out to enjoy ourselves again, I don't think the priority of anyone will be the Hundred with its razzmatazz, the £6 million or so quoted for entertainment and high-end pyrotechnics.

Sitting amongst many in the Trescothick pavilion, wondering if the rain will stop to allow the covers to be taken off, will suit me just fine

If the CC season is to be halved (and at present that seems the best option), Somerset must insist that their points deduction is reduced from 12 to 6.
