What's the issue?
The Strauss High Performance Review is due to report this autumn with recommendations to the ECB on changes needed to improve the standard of professional cricket in England and Wales.
A number of media reports state that reducing the number of first class matches in county cricket from 14 to 12 or as little as 10 is a favoured option. County CEOs met the ECB on 3 August to discuss the Strauss review.
Cricket fans should be involved in this debate but the ECB have yet to do so despite promising to do. We fund the game through our TV subscriptions, ticket purchases and county memberships. The counties own the media rights to games played on their grounds. 15 of the 18 counties are owned by their members.
Drastic changes to the schedule or structure cannot be made without 12 counties agreement. The counties should make sure their members and supporters also agree to any significant change.
Now is the time for cricket supporters to make their views known.
THE HUNDRED WAS IMPOSED ON CRICKET FANS LET'S NOT REPEAT THAT HERE!
