@SB - Twitter is a dreadful medium. Hence I avoid it where possible. It's hard to make a reasoned case, but a good place to put an attention seeking headline. I do suspect this tale has many twists yet, before we get anywhere near a live competition

Once the counties are reduced to having a T20 comp which will have to rely on players who can't get in the England Side and can't get a City Contract the funds that generates will fall though the floor and teams like Lancs and Yorkshire will either put out the youth side at an outground or refuse to play

@nick - yes, indeed that's what will happen. It'll just fade away quietly. That's OK - it could become a "futures" type competition. A place for new talent to make a case for being snapped up by a city in the future.
