Went to Lords today as a neutral, can really see why most purists hate t20. Half the crowd were barely watching, view obscured at least twice per over by people off to the bar... Still enjoyed it, but I like being able to hear myself think, and the person next to me talk rather than the constant murmur of noise from people who barely notice a boundary, or turn away or even leave the stands on a hattrick ball.
One thing amused me - they've introduced those reusable cups where you get a £1 deposit back if you return the cup. Hence dozens of young kids (and a fair few adults) scour the stadium for used cups - beer snakes are now worth a lot of dosh! (one kid apparently made £51)

Yorkshire, yorkshire, yorkshire.....not going to be a great T20 season either is it, without our ENgland players and having been done over a bit b both international signings we're not really set up for this lark are we
So Yorkshire move their game against Derbyshire to the 30th because of the England Semi Final. On the one hand, they'll have Willey, Plunkett and Rashid back by then so that's good for them. On the other hand, I put 2 Derbyshire players in my Fantasy Team as they were due to play two games...I think I might sue them...
Balladeer: Happy new year and Christmas and all that to all. (Sorry - again, I mostly browse on mobile, so didn't see your earlier wishes!)

pierredelafranchesca: Gale and Pyrah to support Lions as coaches.....OK, i mean Gale has been shit for Yorks and is potentially neck deep in this racism case, but sure why not. In fact, keep the useless prick.

Balladeer: Definitely needed to be a thread. I came up with one of the same answers as you because I can't see the chatbox on mobile.
