Not enough quality in this Welsh Fire side to compete against the Southern Brave, they struggled last year as well after showing some promise in some games, all down to finances though.

Aren’t the eight franchises equally funded? I know there’s a salary cap.

Aye keep the best leg break bowler in world cricket back until they need 8 runs from 30 balls with 10 wickets remaining...
Great captaincy

20 fewer balls and a few other rule tweaks. Otherwise not very much. It’s superfluous.

I don't know, but it doesn't look that way with the massive difference in the quality of player's in both sides.

Its taken 49 balls for them to take a wicket. :roll:

There's a couple in the South African and Indian squad's that'll give him a run for his money, he's decent though.

Watched the game earlier , BBC hype declared it new , groundbreaking , exciting cricket with 4s / 6s everywhere , what a let down that game was , and , how are they titled Welsh ?

Also total overkill by all the presenters on field , side lines , commentary box , how many do you need , Arlott , Brian Johnson , Benaud , that era of commentators put you there , in the venue describing the game without the hysterics , and I do like and follow cricket .

Thought that band at the interval The Big Moon sounded good too .

Gonna watch it again tonight Dicky, can't be any worse than the one sided debacle we saw last night.

Games like that wasn't what was being portrayed at its inset, the quality of players between the two playing sides were far to one sided, it was a joke.

Tyrell’s and KP sponsors tonight. Definitely better than gambling sponsorship.
