It does exactly what it says on the tin. If it's not about football then it belongs in here for discussion. Once again we ask that you respect your fellow posters.

Can understand the decision, but the timing of it is piss poor.

Good. Save it for the proper cricket.

They didn’t think that pre match firework display through.

I see they haven’t made the on screen graphics any easier to follow.

I'm not a fan of this.
Didn't enjoy it last season.

It’s entertaining enough but I still don’t understand why an already too full cricket calendar with three already well established and successful format needs a fourth. It adds nothing.

Not enjoying this game 27/3 off 29 balls, against a side littered with quality, game was designed to make it exciting not to be a one sided, spectators have probably paid good money to watch this and its being dominated by the bowlers, I'm not getting it. :x

I though cricket was designed to be a contest between bat and ball?

Thought this format was to make decent totals with boundaries galore, therefore entertaining, sides need to be better matched quality wise, not one side overloaded with quality and other side thrown together.
Same sides will dominate again this year, people be turning their noses up the way its looking.
Welsh fire be lucky to make 75 and bat out the 100 balls

Absolutely, shocking run out, Duckett trying his best to put a total together though, fair play.
