Do you mean to tell me you are not salivating at the prospect of the forthcoming titanic clash between The Spirit and The Invincibles?
Believe me, I'm no friend of Mr. Graves. we 've clashed in the past when I have dared to disagree with his views.
No one is a greater supporter of county cricket than myself, as many on this board will testify.i've spent most days of the last 60 summers watching it religiously all over the country.
Nothing would please me more than return to one division.34 three day matches for all counties and the abolition of bonus points. I am one of the dinosaurs too, but I know it ain't gonna happen.
As for the demise of the shire counties I've been hearing that for years, I think the last one to lose their first-class status was Cambridgeshire in about 1867. Are not The ECB giving them all over a million quid each to keep them going?
When they introduced 65 over games back in the day, then 50 overs,40 overs, then 20 the end of civilization as we know it was forecast by many,it never happened.
I do understand that franchise cricket, made- up sides, drastic changes in the playing conditions may be anathema to many, but I prefer to remain optimistic that it will catch on, attract a new audience and eventually benefit and enrich the game.
I respect the views of others but choose to differ on this occasion, and certainly do not want to get into a debate on the subject.Let's wait and see,
