Will fans in Hove flock to the Ageas to watch Luke Wright? NO.

Will people feel an affinity to these new manufactured teams in the way they do to counties? NO.


Few will watch this garbage, fewer will care. If we have to endure it for five years: it will be reform quickly, then aborted.

The hope:

We never hear from the architects and champions of this risible rubbish again. That means players of the current and recent past.

There was an alternative. It was for the BBC to have say, ten, T20 matches, the local derbies with the bigger crowds. Surrey v Middlesex, Lancashire v Hampshire, Glos and Somerset, Hampshire v Sussex, Warwickhsire v Worcestershire, Notts v Derbyshire and so on.
