Radical Proposals by the ECB

Postby Aidan11 » Wed Feb 25, 2015 4:12 pm

I've put this in the Domestic section although part of it does involve international cricket.


A bit worrying to me. I though Graves was on our side?

Seems to be a list of the worst possible suggestions! 3 day cricket, back to 1 division and a t20 franchise system :facepalm

It's frightening isnt it?


It's as if they just want to steamroller T20 cricket in at the expense of everything else.

I'm gradually coming round to the idea that a franchise T20 would be a good thing.

Everything else i disagree with though.

Surely a reduction in international cricket would have to be cleared by Sky, they'd be justified in reducing the value of their TV rights.

This is clearly nothing but blue sky thinking by the ECB as shown by suggestions of 40 over ODIs and 4 day tests.

Whilest it looks alarming, I'm trying not to jump to conclusions. At the moment, all I am seeing is a desire to put everything on the table, with nothing non-negotiable.

early days yet.

certainly the idea of 3 day cricket and such like would be less than desirable, imo, but that it is even being considered demonstrates a willingness to thoroughly examine all possibilities, rather than the usual fiddling around the edges, whilst bowing and scraping, with cap in hand and much forelock tugging, to Sky.

Lets see what concrete proposals come out of it. Dobells article has a whiff of scaremongering to me.

How are proposals voted on? Do they require unanimous support from the counties or just a majority?

guessing this is a radical ploy for ECB to scrap one or two counties so their can have enough space to have a proper first class structure, T20 and ODi competition and still start the season mid may and end September.
Hard part is persuading or choosing the two counties to get scrapped although I know ECB are waiting for time and any county getting bankrupt I believe won't get bailed out in the future.

I just hope ECB don't become like CA and actually only play commercial friendly games all the time to reduce home fixture congestion that will be the saddest aspect of this since teams like Pak, NZ, WI, Sri lanka will hardly tour England any more since Aus, India will tour every 4 years guaranteed, SA should tour every 5 years so the others are basically Gonna a very short series every 5-8 years.

It turns out that the proposals are not set in stone and that these proposals were leaked.
