Summer ruined again already (for cricket fans)

Postby RegencyCheltenhamSpa » 23 Feb 2021, 07:50

So a few hours of looking forward to the summer again until new bombshell news broke this morning.

The Hundred cricket tournament is back with a vengeance. Fixtures and player selections being made today.

I was hoping Covid had killed it off.

Can we not vaccinate ourselves against this mutant variant of the sport?

:lol:

No way, the ECB aren't going to let a potential new cash cow slip away that easily.

Some of us have only begrudgingly accepted the ODI format...

As one of many GCCC members boycotting the '100 garbage'; I certainly hope it falls flat. Problem being the media coverage will be right in ones face [rather similar to Brexit and Toryism - easily led sheep...etc]. Grass root support is minimal; with most against it. It complicates an already overcrowded - short - season. When crucial games are played in mid to late September it is plainly ridiculous.
I don't mind the 20/20; it is a money spinner to county sides; my personnel distaste is that the majority of 'new' fans watching these games are there solely to consume alcohol in excessive quantities spoiling the enjoyment for others. Having witnessed numerous instances of inebriated idiots causing mayhem, and thereby causing distress to family groups [especially with younger children[, I am less inclined to attend. Better stewarding and quicker ejection of those required - the inebriated ones, not families!
I do however enjoy the atmosphere at Cheltenham where such problems seem to be less.

Similar at Bristol; the "family" stand - in fact the area where I normally reside - is for families. However the good intention never materialises; due to poor stewarding and a reluctance to chuck out loud, foul mouthed, alcohol fuelled scumbags! Especially so in the floodlight games; which is rather late for some youngsters and even some oldies!
I have yet to venture to the far north to see DurhamCCC; I gather it is well thought of and a delightful venue.
