I like the notion that it will run alongside the Blast, but somehow won't affect it in any way

perhaps the 100 will be played by overseas players that the Blast didn't want..... and some robots... or bowling machines..... or something

The new five-week competition would take place alongside the existing T20 Blast, which the ECB says will be unaffected by the proposed format changes.

Increasingly likely that the hundred will be the torpedo that sinks Colin Graves and his merry bunch of idiots. It has been reported in the last couple of days that the ECB called the counties to a meeting to discuss finances, and the counties were told that the costs of staging the tournament had dramatically gone over budget, from an initial under 10 million, to a revised 13 million, to now a running cost of £40 million!! This is no small drop in the ocean!!!

Of course, what this means for counties is quite a stark problem, as with costs up 3-4 times their initial assessment, the bribery they were given in the shape of huge profits that the tournament would replace from the holes it blew in their turnover, are now pretty much disappearing. Reports indicate that counties are furious, with one unnamed person who asked to remain anonymous suggesting Graves position as head is under threat.

The counties under the existing model were promised I believe 1.5 million each as compensation for the tournament. That is 27 million quid.... the difference between the original budget costs when this profit share was promised, and the now budgeted costs is..... 27 million. The ECB have spent the profits that they intended to give away, so what exact benefit is there going to be? I have also seen that the trial events are seemingly being deemed failures.

The ECB has lost 72 million in cash reserves. They have made no lie about the fact the 100 is going to make a loss in the first couple of years. They have promised cash as compensation to the county game, but now costs have ate that up. With now no large cash flow to fall back in to cover the 100s losses, the continuation of this project seems foolhardy, and thats before we even debate that it seems the traditional T20 competition will run alongside it, and looks like it will even be swelled to an extra 2 games.

This is madness. The ECB seem the only people on earth who understand the need for this giant piece of rubbish, but in backing it, are they going to destroy the English game? Drive it to financial ruin?

We are consistently faced with business men in suits running the game on the perceived wisdom that it makes business sense, and in recent times the game has suffered for this, but at least financial stability was a result? Now, we seem to be getting neither.

Not surprisingly the ultra- traditional Cricket Society view the Hundred with contempt but in the true spirit of cricket offer their own innovations to the competition to Grocer Groves.
In the interests of equality each team must contain at least 2 females and one member of the LGTB community.
To assist in adhering to the limited time frame they suggest
1 During power plays the fielding team employs 2 dogs to patrol the outfield trained to chase, retain and return the ball to the bowler.
To avoid delays caused by 12th man bringing drinks and food supplements on to the field at the fall of the wicket
2 The umpire at the bowling end should carry a cool box and open a tinny for the bowler to signal the end of the over. He should also have an oxygen cylinder strapped to his back for the benefit of the bowler who is charged with delivering the 10 ball over.
3 To provide the energy supplements the square leg umpire must supervise the barbie
placed there ensuring that the chops , burgers and sausages are turned regularly.
Good to see the Cricket Society contributing to the frivolity.

Guardian
'Then there’s The Hundred. This has so far infuriated millions of people who like cricket, but, we’re told, will appeal to the many more millions who don’t, yet, but might if only it didn’t resemble cricket so much. The ECB has blown through £65m in cash reserves in the last two years, and the cost of launching the new competition has ballooned to more than £40m. This is why it’s also had to make so many cuts. And cuts mean compromises, mainly to its development programmes. The overseas placement scheme’s been scrapped and so has its specialist pace and spin bowling projects'.

A VERY BIG GAMBLE by the ECB. What happens if it doesn't work?

In 2015 Graves, Harrison and Strauss came together and by the end of 2016 the ECB starting losing millions, before the idea of the 100 came about. That is after having reserves of £70m for quite a number of years. I remember reading an article about it by Dobell that has since disappeared. Is the answer to the ECB's losses? They are in big trouble if it is not the answer.

well...... the modern way of dealing with expensive gambles that don't go the way you want them to, is to just walk away and let somebody else deal with the fall out, so I imagine this is what the two remaining 'three stooges' will do.

they'll console themselves by sitting around counting their own personal wealth, over and over again..... never gets boring, apparently

I'm still reeling with shock from the knowledge that the 'ordinary' counties with their players, staff, and supporters will find themselves limited to a 2 month long competition with only 8 matches in it..... at the height of summer

and....... in order to make the 8 matches really worthwhile, the counties that have been stripped of their best players for 2 months by the franchises, will not be allowed to bring any overseas players to improve the quality of the competition, in case they become more exciting than the franchise event

If you want to ensure the best possible audience participation in something new, untested and largely derided, then strip away as much of the competition as is humanly possible, before neutering whatever remains, and then claim that the audience has exceeded expectations.

I half expect them to try and get Wimbledon brought forward a couple of weeks so as not to confuse the women and children

Since there will be World Twenty20 tournaments in November 2020 and November 2021, might as well sack off The Hundred and come up with a flagship Twenty20 tournament starting in the 2nd half of August, akin to the Big Bash. Allows for more County Championship cricket to be played in summer.

Has been from the beginning, what started off as a "City Based T20" tournament has gone out of control.

I am more disappointed in the counties being blinded by proposals made from the ECB Administrators, representatives should be taking Graves and Harrison to task because it's the ECB who will have to repair any damage. Promised free money for signing some image rights away, at the expense of radically changing the County Cricket programme. Not even a risk assessment has been done should The Hundred fail to prosper.

the counties had £1.2M waved under their noses. hard to criticise them at a time when many have big debts

my guess is that they won't get to see any of that money.... like Corbyn promising to write off student debts before a GE and Boris promising the NHS £350m a week before the ref.... all bollix.... vote for me!
