I've been saying this for nearly two years, and been decried as a parochial Yorkshireman.  What has changed?  ;)

A very public and serious threat to the future of (the proper form of cricket) red ball cricket in England, at a decent standard anyway!

Yes we have heard you  :)

There are a lot of forums and comments being said and the England
Management are getting a pasting

As for Stokes....how committed is he to test cricket

We all want to see him play but is it realistic when the money is moving so fast to limited over and t20

Will there be anyone left ?

I decry you as a one-eyed yorkie because you think Bairstow is the second coming, have never disagreed on Strauss! ;)

Hales has great temperament for club cricket. I don't know how he has survived cricket at the international level. Good riddance!

He's fully entitled to make his decision and anyone complaining about his motives is an idiot.

This is his livelihood, he has a right to earn as much money as he can. He owes nothing to the club, much like Rashid.

Trouble is with this logic - how does this earn him more money? He won't be available for any more overseas white ball tournaments than he is currently.

Hales and Rashid have one day International contracts, as does butler/Plunkett/wood so it's these guys that will be following together you would think.

hales has released himself from all championship cricket, so he plays for England in limited over cricket, and for Notts

Apart from that he can play for whoever he wants if there are no Notts or England games.

That's as I understand it but please correct me if I'm wrong.He will of taken a pay cut from Notts, not that he is bothered you would not think.

Oddly enough....very oddly actually I read today Morgan is available for all cricket from the start of this season with Middlesex.

In the recent past, Morgan and Middlesex had an 'agreement' he was not picked. Whether he is/was good enough is a mute point, but he was not going to be selected in the past regardless.Looks like that might change for him.

Anyway, it's got to be Butler next. Personally I think it's a bit of a shame this is happening, but do you blame the players? Definitely not, sport is a short career, they cash in when they can.By opting out they might prolong their limited over careers.

I just worry about Stokes , he is a our diamond along with Root, I cannot see both playing all 3 forms of the game much longer.

Bye bye

Wasnt ever going to be good enough technically or mentally for red ball Cricket. Ecb should cancel his contracts full stop and so should notts but both are mercenary so wont care

Hopefully the likes of buttler and co follow suit as they simply arent good enough either so might as well get them out the picture

If they want to play IPL then just let them be guns for hire

I can not blame them they have earned the right to do what they like.

They do not see cricket like most of us do..
