Anyone for 10/10?

Post by Duty281 on Tue 12 Dec 2017, 4:57 am

No not a joke, I can assure you!

The first high-profile ten-over cricket league starts (and finishes) in the UAE this week. Adil Rashid, Alex Hales and Eoin Morgan are some of the English players signed up to the various franchises.

Featuring two-over powerplays and 90 minute matches, Eoin Morgan reckons this format is ideal for the Olympics.

Future of the game, or soon-to-be forgotten fad?

Ridiculous , I think. Unless it involves just four per side fielding and bears on unicycles...

I know the younger generation is supposed to have short attention spans , but really ?

Globalisation and run for time has damped the cricket. I know that being into Olympics will bring world wide recognition to Cricket. But we need to ask one question to ourselves, 'Do we need recognition at the cost of our self?'
Though shorter format are getting more recognition these days, thanks to the leagues like IPL, BBL etc. the longer format needs to be nurtured.

The thing about 20 over cricket is that it is what most people play whether at school, week night leagues and weekend leagues. I have certainly played in all of those.

This 100 ball stuff is just a gimmick. It doesn't relate.

If people aren't watching cricket it's because the competition structures don't work. The calendar structure doesn't work. There is too much cricket.

I certainly started to lose interest when they split the county championship into two divisions. Now I never know what is being played? Some days it's the county championship then the T20 Blast then the Royal London Cup. The calendar seems too sporadic.

Also cricket have become less accessible. I can't remember any live cricket on free tv since the 2005 Ashes. I also loved checking the games on Ceefax on pages 340. I used to go through all the games. Know most of the players, batting and bowling averages.

I like the counties. Don't like the nicknames. Don't like franchises. Don't like 100 balls.

I have been saying for 10 years scrap all cricket apart from 20 overs domestically and 20 overs and test matches internationally.
