Gawd bless Sussex. It was a good run, made all the harder by all those rained off matches.... meant you had to come round very wide on the bend to catch up

Congrats to Worcs

(we thrashed them once, and then lost a tight one by 1 ball when our superstar arrived late and wasn't included in the line up..... which I think means we would have done the double over them, so really it's a moral trophy victory for Durham)

so congrats to Durham too :halo:

We did the double over them this year in red ball cricket and won the whole of the 50 over thing and didn't lose to them in T20, so we must be the all round best team on the planet!!

The most pleasing aspect of this years finals day is three out of four teams are not test counties, nor part of The Hundred competition. Whilst the winner have achieved their success consisting of a youthful, homegrown team. It's a shame Worcestershire's New Road holds barely over 5,000, where the county has ingredients to repeat further success and encourage new supporters to the club.

County identity is just as important when it comes to following a team, something The Hundred competition will never replicate because of it's regional nature along with a squad of random individuals.

the hundred isn't about any of that county/identity/development stuff... it's a cash cow for the ECB, and something for the broadcasters and sponsors to soil their pants over

which is why I like the idea.... move all that sort of rubbish away from the county stuff, so that perhaps eventually county cricket will be played in the summer and T20 will be played on a Friday night

I'm not entirely against another competition, but The Hundred should be played in September out of harms way. All it does is have no County Championship cricket for most of July and August, while devaluing the 50 Over Cup to a 2nd rate competition. How do England prepare for a 2023 World Cup campaign if the best white ball players are playing circus cricket?

In September it would coincide with the football season. Would Sky cover it? Would the T20 crowd watch it?
