Some comments to add to the discussion here....................

Grateful thanks to 57deacon for an excellent summary of the horrors to come. If only there were more at ECB level with his grasp of how the real cricket supporters feel. The quote that still sticks in my mind is that "100" is for mothers and kids to enjoy!! Presumably no thought to the rest of the cricket fraternity! 25% of the season in the height of summer given over to entertainment which is best described as - toytown play games - means that our leaders must have a death wish. Can we not sack them before the whole of summer is given over to some real stuff for mother and kids - American football because nobody with any sense is interested in watching "100" rubbish. My original suggestion of little holes all over the pitch with bunnies sticking their heads up at unexpected times has never been taken up!!
Old Boy!
