Reece Topley, could he play at Test level? Tall, left handed. Iíd like him to be looked at.

Well the Summer of cricket is rattling along wonderfully only to be all but stopped in it's tracks by the Hundred.
About as welcome as Keir Starmer at the Durham Miners Gala.

Hoping against hope that the stupid competition falls flat on its face this year & that group of supporters it was designed for completely lose interest.

I think that the upcoming announcement of the FTP hot on the heels of the focus on player workload could force their hands. Something has got to give.

The IPL is expanding and is almost untouchable. Pretty much every test playing nation now has its own franchise white ball tournament, weirdly we have two!

Sam Curran has just 98 T20 runs in 20 matches.  Wow!

The Hundred is confirmed until at least 2028

England Women comfortably won against Sri Lanka without getting out of second gear.

Good to see Capsey and Bouchier score runs. Kemp and Wong continue to impress with the ball.

I know I'm not the only one here, but I don't understand who supports this. The one good thing to come of it is having a women's match before the men's. The rest is a complete waste of time, and nothing that couldn't have been achieved by rebranding the blast.

Yep. It's also piss poor that the BBC hasn't given the slightest shit about county cricket for decades but will free up hours of the schedule for this rubbish.

I donít like it much but it was obvious from what I saw last year that was firmly aimed at families with young children and from that point of view it was probably a success. They upped the razzmatazz, games rattled along quickly and finished at child friendly times and they appear to have attracted their target audience. So itís always going to be this time of year to coincide with school holidays but similarly is always going to annoy a lot of normal cricket fans.

And what about families with small children from Worcesteshire, Somerset, Essex and all the other counties that have been dumped out?

They could easily have revamped the T20, kept those teams in and made the game more appealing to fans all over the country. Even more so if the BBC had shown the same interest and actually tried to promote the county game.
