So the latest news to come out of 'The Hundred' or should i say 'The Madness'.......

1. 10 ball over at the end has been scrapped

2. It will now be 20x5 ball overs to make it 100 balls

3. Teams will bowl ten balls from one end but captains will have a choice of whether to split the deliveries between two bowlers.

3. Therefore captains could be given the option of keeping bowlers on for two overs in succession

4. Bowlers can bowl a max of 4 overs - eg. 20 balls

5. Trial matches to be held at Trent Bridge (men) and Loughborough (women) in September

6. It looks increasingly likely that England players will be made available for the first two rounds of the Hundred and the finals day when it is launched in 2020 in order to give the tournament more star quality

Thoughts?? if i didn't know already..... lol....

The format is obviously stupid and ill-considered, any fool can see that. It doesn't have any advantages over the existing T20 format, in fact it quite clearly makes it more complicated and counter-intuitive for new fans to follow.

HOWEVER: the format is the least worst thing about the idea. Having 2 T20 tournaments running in competition with each other was even more dumb. At least by becoming a complete laughing stock, the 100 has the virtue of making the blast look serious and dignified by comparison.


Why cant domestic cricket just do things simply. 1) A 4 day tournament, in a pyramid structure with 8-10 elite regional teams playing "test matches" once a fortnight, 2) a T20 tournament with 4 divisions of 10 each playing each other home and away on Friday night and Sunday afternoons, meaning that the minor counties can get involved, and a home nations 50 over competition every September. That's it.

Free to air is the way forward - putting live T20 games on YouTube and other streaming websites. That's more likely to gain a bigger interest with the younger generation rather than a brand new format which is even making it too complicated for cricketers to understand.

Problem with putting it on youtube is that you actively have to search for it to find it. Which would be fine for me, as I have youtube on my tv and would happily spend 30 seconds typing in "blast cricket" or whatever, but you're not actually going to attract many new fans that way.

The other problem is what to do to attract kids who don't live in one of the 18 major counties. The junior team I coach (ages 10-15) in Cambridgeshire would happily support Cambridge, happily support Cambridgeshire and happily support England, but put any other teams on and they lose interest within a few minutes - I speak from experience.

Hence I've come to the conclusion that they only way to save cricket is to get international cricket back on FTA tv.

Il admit Ive not looked into it for a while. But last I remember not all grounds have permanent floodlights. So have to fetch temporary ones in.
So arent always willing to do it for every game due to cost etc. So will start some early so they finish I. Light.



Some grounds are even given a certain amount of times  a year they can use there floodlights by the council.

I thought the point of The Hundred was to make the game more accessible to your man, woman or child in the street by making it simpler?.....

Probably explains it that would be my main point but in the facilities to have games slightly later so people can attend. Also get the best players like the other leagues. People want to see the like of Gayle,Kohli and de villiers play so lets make that happen. If de villiers is willing to play in the Caribbean were they dont even pay there international players, theyve got to find a way to have him play in england

That's it.

This is starting to sound like sense.

I've always argued the disconnect between minor counties cricket and the "elite" county systems is an issue for English cricket. Who doesn't want to have the chance to give on of the so call "big boys" a spanking. make cricket aspirational!

There's a bit of interest from media and the kind of hardcore cricket wonks who devise their own IPL fantasy leagues for fun, but no-one else even seems to be aware its happening. When is this "new audience" supposed to magically materialise?

Although it's pointless and stupid

If all the players who are supposed to have signed up have and play, the level of cricket should be very good!

In a bid to look urban and cool, it looks like they're launching this all in Brick Lane.

Can't wait for the derision of the team names, personally...

Is this "interest" from the media genuine, or are they being "encouraged" to try and get some hype around it?
As the BBC are going to be showing it I suppose it is in their interest to pretend to be excited about it...
