No, the county game overall will be stronger.

16 mainly Friday T20s is the best option for that comp as a spectator comp and TV will be interested on those terms. A 50 over comp building during the season and a Aug final helps that. The championship is improved as it also builds during the summer.

Look at baseball and the way its the beating heart of the American summer, cricket should be the same here. At the moment it isn't, it can be and it deserves to be.

I agree i think a Friday night works, for me however it seems despite the initial negative feedback crowds seem to like the 20/20 format whenever it's played, which is good news to yccc.

Friday nights tagged on end on a 4 day game with no T20 practice. Standard will drop.

Trouble is the only game that equates to anything like baseball is T20.

I'm surprised the call hasn't gone out for the return of three day county matches yet. In a 14 game season, you can reduce the number of days from 56 to 42, making it much easier to fit the cash cow events.

The way Yorkshire are playing ATM 3 day matches are a bonus. We lost in under 2 at Scarbados

Calling a team Heroes may come BACK to haunt them when they finish bottom and no matter who they are they will never replace the cricketing heroes I have seen grace the headingley turf.

But we may get some decent sponsorship from Cadbury's and a few freeby chocolates thrown to the crowd by Flintoff via a cannon or similar

Expensive chocolate

Of course this new cricket is not aimed at members and attendance would not be covered by the membership fee.

If you did want to go it may well be cheaper than for proper cricket but it will almost certainly cost a lot more than buying a decent sized chocolate bar for you own personal use.

You wouldn't need to push any kids out of the way to catch it either.
