They’ve taken the things I liked and arranged them all in the wrong way. The knockout stage for the cup is still one game. The CC is up for grabs but will be won by a team who never has to play the second-placer, apart from as part of a separate competition. It feels like an attempt to appease everyone that as a result will appease no one. It’s a mess and I hate it.

YES! Love a bit of fantasy cricket, until game day 1 when I realise 6 of my players are either injured or not selected, and my oppo's captain takes an unexpected 5 for and makes 100 not out off about 60.
We going to stick with just one thread this year for all fixtures rather than a thread per game week? Not many contributions going on, would be good to keep it all on one thread so we can look back at absurd predictions et al
The unfortunately nuanced answer is that in order to be genuine preparation for international cricket, players need to experience all kinds of conditions. People who said Taunton of a few years ago wasn't representative should be sat down and made to watch this winter, but at the same time not every ground should be like that. Some need to bounce more, some need to be roads.
God knows how you'd reconcile that with a points system mind.
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.
