sport news English cricket could be set for a NEW red ball competition to be played ... trends now
Counties will be offered the chance to play a new red-ball competition in August from next season as compensation for the proposed cuts to the County Championship.
Sir Andrew Strauss’ high-performance review will push to reduce the Championship from 14 games a season to 10 or 12. It is, however, being resisted by counties who are worried about a backlash from members and concerned about players being left idle for long periods.
Strauss’ review panel will meet next week to agree concrete proposals, with a view to a vote of the county chairmen being held in September so the new structure can be put into place
