The whole BWT born out of necessity could offer the ECB a genuine option to reducing cc in the future, 3 groups by geography, 10 matches a year instead of 14 or 16, top 3 and best placed 2nd play semi final and final knockouts like the shef shield. Wonder how many counties would buy into it? For those on the extremes of the country a massive reduction in travel, guaranteed derbies for local rivals..... Cant imagine many would lose that much financially from fewer games and more time for white ball stuff....
I'm keen on't. Apart from anything else it means smaller clubs wouldn't haemorrhage their players to the chance to play against better opposition. Needs seeding for the groups otherwise they'll be unbalanced and certain clubs will barely play each other.

It's an interesting one, take the North group now, all D2 and D2 bound yorks were the real thing being played.... But... Historically you'd look at Notts, Durham, yorks, lancs as being strong counties and a potentially tough group. Can't decide if I'm for it or against it, obvious pros and cons
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.
