Problem with CSA agreement

2014-02-10 14:33

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 terrible)

- 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.
