Interesting article. I'm not a really a fan of having associate members play in county cricket. I never liked it when Ireland and the Netherlands played in the one day competitions.

One format that hasn't been muted would be two divisions of twelve team, with each team facing each other once. This would mean plucking six teams from minor counties cricket, who would go into the second division, and the top twelve teams in the top division.

Let's take this (non-t20) side of the discussion to the new thread I created in the domestic forum. I don't have time to address his point now but I'll put your post in there.

I make it three - Glamorgan, Middlesex and Yorkshire?

Or maybe there's only one county in the whole thing - County Durham

Aren't Sussex and Yorkshire similar in that they're both amalgamations?

Whereas we look absolute car crash, Leicestershire do have the makings of some decent T20 side - certainly capable of sneaking into the last eight anyway.

A tweet from Charlie Dagnall: "Wasim Khan CEO at Leics CCC told me today there will be NO franchise T20 cricket in the future".

Whether that means he doesn't want any, or that the current plan is for there not to be any, I don't know.

Looking forward to continuing out cracking run in the T20 tonight with Somerset giving us a thwacking live on the radio.

Just seen Sky's announcement of this evening's T20 coverage, not that I'll be watching, of course; Derbyshire Falcons v Lancashire Lightning. I know the dark side of the Pennines is famous for all sorts of bad weather, but what's Derbyshire's connection with small birds of prey?

Chris Gayle is going to be chasing over 250 at this rate!

This 'joke' didn't need two airings on two different forums.

Good call from Sky not to show the match that will probably be the best of the whole tournament. They had a clue with it being Chris Gayle's debut.

Fricking rubbish batting from Essex especially when gifted runs by Somerset's awful fielding.

We just wanted to ensure you had enough runs to let Gayle get a ton. He messed it up though. Fool.

Never told the same joke to different audiences?

Have you ever told one at all?

The 'Falcons' name was chosen because the Rolls Royce automobile of that name was built in Derby. The club's previous T20 name was 'Phantoms', for the same reason. I have no idea what their original name of 'Scorpions' refers to.

I have an alternative suggestion - how about 'Derbyshire County Cricket Club'?

Thanks for that. It's in honour of Derbyshire's engineering heritage then, whilst Lancashire's must be to do with all the poor weather they get.
