The new 100 ball format competition coming to England next year. Seven cities eight teams. Is it all it’s hyped up to be? The teams are Birmingham Pheonix, Welsh fire, oval invincible’s, London spirit, Manchester originals, Trent rockets and the southern brave. Now if they can fit the 100 in while still keeping all of the formats before there wouldn’t be a problem. But with the 100 the 50 over competition is going to be nothing more than a sub-standard second eleven competition. We win the 50 over world cup and ditch the 50 over the cup. Does this make sense to you? Furthermore, the scheduling is ridiculous. Somerset’s first game was in April and last was in place September. However, a new and different competition may be good for England before the t20 world cup. However, we are trying to create the next ipl, not the next format. Why is it a 100 balls? It is just changing it for the sake of changing it. In addition to this, it won’t help our failing test team. Only hinder them and make them have to choose between another competition.
