Glad the lankies went early, surprising that it took Sussex so long to get going in the tournament with the bowling attack they have, not really fussed who wins it to be honest, just glad the weather didn't fuck it with the seemingly deliberate scheduling by the shower, one may think they didn't want a successful blast finals day with a mid sept schedule

6 years in a row it's been won by a northern side interestingly, and 6 years in a row at Edgbaston - in fact Sussex the first Southern team in the final since 2013! Impressive figures - coincidence or not?!
Similarly, Championship won 8 years in a row by Northern teams until they changed the toss rule (now 3 in a row for South)

It’s curious that each team only plays 14 in the groups still, and that it’s relatively fixed as to who doesn’t play who (big games e.g. Roses, El Classicoast always happen twice). In the t20 season you’ve got teams bored (source: radio commentary), playing 1-2 evenings a week. Surely with t20 being the main money source for many clubs we can fit in another two games?! So many Friday-Sunday dates not being used even! Unplayed games like Hants vs Surrey would’ve still got a bigger crowd than about 20 days of championship, probably - easy money
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.
