Maybe no one would notice if Yorkshire sent Brensan out twice, the second time wearing an Steve Patterson mask (Available at all good retailers)

hello, up early today this blog innit! Stupid ODIs eh, if it wasn't for Englands resurgent form and what was a pretty cracking world cup last year i'd happily see it jettisoned, still would rather have had one last test than 5 ODIs

I'd happily see it jettisoned in all forms apart from the World Cup.

Just think, we could be having a decider to a cracking Test series RIGHT NOW.
by StaggerBreaths8/24/2016 9:08:23 AM
Yep, a fifth test should really have been put together at the last minute, but never going to happen sadly

There are two many ODI world wide, Look at the Aus, SA, WI tri series played in front of no one but I still really like attending them them as as a day out. Player have the chance to bat a decent length of time ect

Just think, a 5th test could have been given to a northern county when the weather is nice too! No Joe, don't talk crazy, that'd never happen. Opens old wounds.

You know, Nick, there's another cricket format in which players have the chance to bat a decent length of time...

The ODI at Headingley will be the first played under the permanent floodlights, will be a full house as well. Who would have thought Cricket in the summer...
by nickcricket8/24/2016 9:12:22 AM
StaggerBreaths - Yeah but I like that I can go and see the whole game in the one day
by nickcricket8/24/2016 9:13:11 AM
Morning all. Nemo, good work with the fantasy league... I was pleasantly surprised to see I had moved up three places to 16. Probably not going to challenging for a medal at the end though

That's the positive argument that I have heard about ODIs: it's a day out in which you see an entire game. I'm not sure that it's a sufficiently good argument for maintaining the format in a sport where schedules are as conflicted as they are. But then I barely go to see cricket live, so I'm not the ECB's target audience.
