County Cricket 2020

The annual thread for all things County Cricket for the upcoming season, including perennial topics such as good natured Kent/Surrey banter & fury over the shambolic County Championship schedule.

Also a place to spew bile regarding the upcoming Hundred

Go well, everyone....

More people watch T20 than 1 day or county games. The same will be the case for The Hundred. They will hope to get packed out grounds with matches starting and finishing at not too dissimilar times to evening football games. I suspect it will work in terms of being a crowd pleaser and bring money into the game. However where will that money go? With T20 you know that the revenue made can be invested by your county but with this format if you can make a profitable franchise who gets the money?

Have traditionally followed Surrey so do i automatically follow the Oval side or do i go with the team who will play a couple of miles from me at the ground i can see out of my window?

Plus it is good to get more live cricket back on free to air TV.

Pros: exposure to more players in more high pressured situations, cricket back on terrestrial television, more big pressure exposure to the women's game and brings in a new generation of fans to get involved in the sport.
Cons: it will slowly cause the death of 50-Over and County/Test cricket

The reason why limited over and county championship cricket has died is because the fan base cannot afford to and do not have the time to watch it. To follow your county home and away never missing a day you need the best part of 2 and a half months of spare time and funds.

County cricket is not a spectator sport for the majority. Ye sif you are retired and then there is the corporate aspect but for the working man (women are also available) it is not a spectator sport. Same to a large extent for 1 day games at county level.

For cricket to stay relevant, especially to the new generations things like T20 and The Hundred are important.

The question is how they can take the sport which will become dominated by hitting the boundary or being out, and ensure we still can produce players who have the patience and ability to bat a whole day knowing where their off stump is.

The Hundred is all about making lots of money for those grounds lucky enough to be chosen by the ECB. And the money won't come primarily from admission charges it'll come from the sale of alcohol. (Surrey fill their coffers from the sale of alcohol at T20 and didn't support the introduction of the 100 because a) they don't need the money and b) they know the damage it will do to the future development of cricketers.)

How does the 100 actually work, 10 x 10 ball overs?
How long do they think the game will take, have they had test events?

Currently T20 games should be completed in 2 hours 30 (i.e. 1 hour 15 of playing time each innings) I believe. This however, is rarely enforced and also doesnt allow for mid innings break. I would presume that the 100 would be aiming for 1 hour innings.

Like all things with cricket the issue, particularly in England too, is what happens when the rain hits. A 7pm game that should finish at 9.15pm ends up being pushed back until 9.45pm 2 over whack due to rain?

Good that it is on free to air TV and it may work, not sure myself though.

There is nothing relevant about The 100.

A glorified beer match, sponsored by er, Beer snacks

According to wiki, Surrey voted for and it was Essex, Middlesex and Kent who voted against. Also says each county guaranteed to receive £1.3m.

I share the concern about developing test players though.

Nearly .... Strauss on the 100: it will be aimed "at mums and kids during the summer holidays"

Not sure on the cons yet..

2 of the greatest one day and test matches this country has ever seen happened within about 6 weeks of each other this summer.

The sparse attendance at county 4 day games is granted though

And as I have previously bleated, the Oval saw just two days of weekend, domestic red ball cricket last season.
