New t10 competition set for October

A new t10 competition is set to extend the 2013 domestic season into October.

The Vatican City Airlines t10 Cup will be played across three weekends in October, as a straight knock-out between the eight sides who reach the Twenty20 Cup quarter-finals.

A tournament spokesman said: “October is traditionally a quiet month for the counties. With the new t10 Cup we will instead create new and exciting revenue streams for clubs going forward. Cricket’s new economic paradigm shift demands that we explore new commercial possibilities to increase income across all sectors going forward.”

Innovations for the competition will include that all players bar the wicket-keeper bowl just one over, making up the 10 in total. Flashing bails will, whenever dislodged, automatically trigger the club’s public address system to play Eric Idle’s “Always Look on the Bright Side of Life”. A giant screen will relay the cricketers’ tweets as they happen, making sure that the players don’t miss out on any of their Twitter action while the game is in progress.

In addition, fielders are being completely dispensed with, so only the bowler, wicket-keeper and two batsmen will take to the field for each over.

“Cricket’s all about money… I mean, runs,” the spokesman continued. “Here we’ll see lots of runs, which is sure to please the customer going forward.”

The traditional county cricket fan has been waiting for a new format to replace the tired, old Twenty20 - this sounds perfect!

Nicely done. I also enjoyed Somerset's 'Domerset arena'
