We got the fantasy league up and running in time - only five rounds, and half the players are unavailable with England or overseas, so it's an exciting opportunity to pick unknown players with good names and see them do well (or Ryan Higgins and Darren Stevens, if you're a born winner)

Haven't looked at many squads for tomorrow, but covid blocking some overseas players (& Kolpak) from coming over will be interesting. And 2 separate England squads ravaging a few teams too.
Hampshire for example likely to line up as something like Soames, Weatherley, Northeast, Came, Alsop, McManus, Holland, Barker, Fuller, Organ, Crane in some order, which has about 2 solid dependable county level FC players (Northeast and Barker)
With the lack of match practice for most teams, expecting absolute carnage and stumps flying across the nation. Should be fun!

Seen that you'll get 8 points for a draw now, and also the follow-on target is 200 less, rather than 150. 90 overs before new ball, too. All of this surely encourages defensive cricket plodding for a draw?
The only change countering this is the fact you only get 120 overs to bat in the first innings...
Not sure why we needed any new rules at all, but there we go
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.
