At least this idea seems designed to try to save 18 first class counties, rather than finish a few off.

In his various interviews in the last couple of weeks, Graves has talked about maybe having 6 counties that no longer play 4 day cricket (proving that was his secret agenda all along).

At least this is the county chairmen getting together, and seemingly quickly agreeing this is the best way forward.

Graves often talks about 38 to 3 voting in favour of the blundred, but that was because counties had a gun to their head, with threats of no funding if they didn't agree to it.

This looks like it could go through in a matter of weeks, with none of the resistance the blundred had.
