Wonder how they are going to work this re pricing / full / 20/20 city matches blast 20/20 / Nat West 50 overs/ County championship etc. Cant see myself paying anymore. The razzmatazz of 20/20 and tv 50 over as well is not to my liking so I can see myself reverting more to local cricket and live on my brilliant memories of a once great game .

From todays YP

http://www.yorkshirepost.co.uk/sport/cricket/joe-root-wants-england-stars-to-play-in-new-city-based-t20-tournament-1-8465796

A sensible idea from Joe, that ensures it will not be implemented as "sensible" and the ECB are a million miles away.

Found myself shouting at the radio the other night when Michael Vaughan was talking about the new 2020 tournament and kept talking about how amazing it's going to be to see Ben Stokes running in to bowl against Joe Root!

Well if he does then I fancy a repeat of Stokes v Bratthwaite.....

I can't see myself supporting any team of liquorice all sorts with no identity. If each of the 8 teams have some players from Lancs or Surrey or Essex then I'm going to struggle

Your last sentence says it all TU.

Personally,without a sense of belonging, ownership, shared history,allegiance or commitment watching a team of allsorts is a way of passing the time not supporting YOUR team,.

Look at how MK Dons, known to all and sundry in football as 'the plastics', struggle to get a real backing although they have one of the better new stadiums.

Maybe there's a lesson there.

For me the new T20 will be something to watch if there's nothing better to do,no more, no less.

It will be interesting to see how well the selling of merchandise goes. Will anyone want a Trafford Red Sox or Northern Storm replica shirt?

I really don't think the players have grasped the concept of a draft. Root talking about how important cricket is to Yorkshire sort of illustrate the point.

Well Joe - in this comp there's no Yorkshire playing and if you're allowed to play you could be in South Wales whilst JBs in London and Lyth's Nottingham. Not sure that does much for the benefit of YCCC or our cricket identity. Not sure the casual 'fan' will get it either.

And if the payers are drafted into these random clubs, they will have to live away from home for a further 6 week solid block, something many will find less than appealing.

I have a feeling the money will be enough of an appeal for most. Who can blame them. Sports is a short career and regular first class players don't earm much compared to other sportsmen. Whether a county player can manage to get himself into the T20 city draft could make a substantial difference.

My main concern at the moment is that with T20 continually becoming more specialist. (Just compare how many T20 internationals play test cricket compared to a few years ago.)Young players will soon have to decide which route they want to go down and the longer form will be less attractive.

Just a thought but are we assured of a team based at Headingley?

I see some other franchised sports include teams from both France and even Canada. Perhaps one of the t20 franchises might do similar!

TU:

"Just a thought but are we assured of a team based at Headingley?"

Steve Dennison addressed this issue at the AGM. Headingley is not assured of a city-based franchise. However, it is in a strong position to bid for one from the point of view of its catchment area. Against that, without the redevelopment of the Football Stand it was in a weak position from the point of view of its infrastructure; in fact, it would be ineligible.

Surrey don`t need it.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/cricket/39491424

From the article

".....But could the ECB have invested some of this money directly, before going the full hog with a new format, to try and help the financial problems some counties have found themselves in - those who have taken on massive debt to bring stadiums up to Test standard, for example?....."

He makes a very good point here. We take on an extra 17m of debt to play ICC & ECB matches on our ground while we play OUR matches elsewhere in 2019. Shouldn`t that money be coming from the ECB??

And this sad old Yorkshire member thinks its the begining of the end. My prediction is that we'll lose 2 or even 4 more matches from the Championship

This worried 24 year old Yorkshire supporter is concerned that he may not have county cricket to watch for much longer, and will have to live with just the memories for 50-60 years

yes, one consolation of approaching the three score years and ten is i have had many years watching a great championship competition. now the hierarchy are about to ruin it, but i would have been very upset if this had happened when i was 30. another 2 years before they ruin it completely with only a slightly reduced programme. goodnesss knows what they will do to the cc after 2020.

While I still have a few playing years left in me yet to occupy me, it's the medium to long term that worries me. There will always be local cricket to watch at least, unless the ECB manage to kill the game altogether.
