The big problems I have are:
- Being gauranteed 1st division cricket in a multi tier system (seems
some of that implementation has changed but the initial idea was
- The whole way cricket is scheduled. If the game is to grow around
the world you absolutely have to come up with a standardised tour model
that evokes interest in all the games. You cant just play the big sides
against each other because they attract eyes. You have to make other
games interesting. A test championship in the form it was initially
suggested was never a starter. It made no sense. A test championship,
aligned to a T20 championship, played over a 4 year standardised
schedule with thh trophey being awarded after every two year cycle is
doable and would add so much interest to every single game played!
- Having 3 gauranteed seats on a board of 4 (originally but now 5) is
just asking for trouble. No matter what these guys do they are going to
be able to push it through. Everyone else is at their mercy.
