Like the Champions League of Cricket. He even has some Champions League executives from the football world involved because they are interested in expanding a new sport.

This is being broadcast in all the major cricket playing nations. It's getting thousands of people streaming on youtube and facebook. I think people are buying into it because it is closer to our cricketing experiences then watching the same old international players rocking up to wherever the new T20 Franchise is
Wisden's Almanack has a regular "Cricket Around The World" section - the number of countries in it seems to get bigger every year.

Excellent news.

somethings gone on behind the scenes deffo. The fact his batting has been shite obviously isn't helping but Lancashire look like they've had enough.
