The other totally predictable downside to emerge from yesterday`s meeting of county chairmen is the initial cost of staging The Hundred more than trebling from £13 million to £40 million.

So, as some of us have predicted right from the start, the £1.3 million bonus, used in an attempt to bribe each county into acceptance, is just pie in the sky.

And all this is completely divorced from the reality that we shall be one year out of the EU by then. Even the most ardent of Brexiteers is now admitting their will be a major fall in disposable income at least for the first few years.
