Bristol is one of the biggest cities in the country.

Interesting to go for employment rather than population. The aim is to get families isn't it? If that is the case then the kids can commute from warwick to London with their parents.

I think you have three packages. One for terresterial that you can almost give away to the BBC (think of it as a loss-leader and paying for advertising), the second for Sky and BT to get into a bidding war about and the third to sell to India.

I like the recently retired stars idea. They should all have links with a place. Kp ticks LOTS of boxes. West mids. notts, hants and Surrey. Plus wherever he rocks up this year.

No, I wouldn't have it as a family targeted event. You get the kids interested in cricket by the TV exposure though.

Isn't the big bash a success because it is full of kids?

Non internationals
Won 7 times.


So big international counties have won it 5 times and small counties (to be scrapped in franchise) have won it 7.

It is not all about money.

Hampshire's two victories have also been built around some good youngsters. The likes of Vince, Dawson, Bates (first victory), Briggs and Chris Wood were mixed well with old pros like Cork, Carberry, Mascarenhas and Adams alongside the overseas players. So its not all about internationals.

Good to see that one of the Dutch players (Cooper) is the top scorer for his team in a high profile match like this. To bad it's joint with Extras

Brilliant. Just as people were starting to come to terms with kp not being the player he was...after swishing and missing at eight balls today he now looks brilliant. Get him back in the england side.

Reading his book seems to have converted you.

Well done Mrs Virgs.

Some bizarre choices for the Super Over.

Brett Lee has just gone for 15 off his over; Look Right got a first ball duck; Faulkner scratched around for a run a ball.

Surely Bollinger would have made more sense and Triffit/Pietersen/Maxwell at batsmen?

Lee's had an absolute mare.

The Faulkner gamble however seems to have paid off. I guess the thinking is Faulkner was already 'in' and is dubbed somewhat of a finsher although like you say Triffit looked the better bet.

When was the last time Brett Lee bowled 5 overs?

Crazy decision.

At least Faulkner was in, although Triffit was also in and hitting boundaries so would have made more sense. Looks like they'll get away with it.

All the decisions look pretty sound to me, also looks like KP is a fully integrated and popular team member.

Why not bowl a spin bowler? Bizarre.

For Sharky and Sir Virgs. However I like how Dennis goes on about the English coveting the Big Bash reading out a comment from a guy from Edinburgh!

Nice sexist point "dads can take their kids"

somerset dropped trescothick so it does happen.

Our grounds are not anywhere near as big so simple economics dictates ticket prices. Somerset sell out home games so why would the price be reduced?

Overseas stars like carberry and cooper.

He argues about the quality but the flintoff appointment is clearly about marketing and not quality.

Decoupled from state system - YES. THEY CREATED MORE TEAMS.

Andrew gale the Yorkshire captain was also dropped at some points of the season. So two captains were actually dropped. The piece has more holes than kp's batting stats since 2010.

Well, exactly. And even if a county doesn't sell out, the first rule when pricing an event is that you ensure that your guaranteed audience covers the outlay as near as dammit (rather than blindly assuming that the venue will be filled).
