Don't like the points per game thing after the covid cancellation.
It worked in football, but over 7/8 games, it's not very fair - if Worcestershire and Hampshire win their final games they finish on 9 pts from 8 games (1.13) while Gloucestershire finish on 8 from 7 (1.14) with a win. Their net run rate is far below Worcs & Hants, so in reality, they'd need to have beaten Middlesex too to finish above, but will be carried up there on a technicality with a win over Kent, who are bottom.
Don't see why match abandoned due to covid is any different to match abandoned due to rain - personally think it should be 1 point each and should have been that in the blast. It probably would have been rained off today anyway given how it went at the Oval!

Super frustrating the way they've devalued what was otherwise a great tournament today...
Tournament for those not playing in the Hundred - but Raine and Potts are allowed in for the final. Then the final on a Thursday, 2 days after the second semi... set up to fail!
The tourney has been compact in recent years, but the final has been about 2 weeks later and at the weekend => packed house. This today is disappointing and totally avoidable! No county (or franchise, or international) cricket scheduled for Sunday, no brainer to have it then suuurely
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.
