The ECB are planning to launch another review of domestic cricket this winter - just three years after their previous one.

The governing body believe it is justified because the county landscape has changed significantly through two seasons of Covid-hit competitions and now has to accommodate a fourth format in the Hundred.

In 2018, then Leicestershire chief executive Wasim Khan chaired a working group that recommended the flipping of the County Championship's divisional balance to a 10-8 team split, retained 14 matches and banned overseas players from the Royal London Cup - but the pandemic meant they were not adopted in 2020.
