It’s pathetic honestly. Scrabbling around for ideas is exactly it. Why would 100 ball crikkit appeal to folk that 120 ball crikkit doesn’t. They should focus on getting bums on seats in the T20 Blast. Or expanding it somehow.
If they were strict (batting and bowling side) with fiddling about timewise then T20 would get done in the time required for a 100 ball cricket match. But that would be too easy though for the ECB to do, instead they go for a stupid idea.
