There's none so blind...

The choice facing county administrators was to have all the best cricketers in the world (sans Ricky Ponting) playing to packed houses of young supporters throughout April and May, or serve up the usual diet of county championship matches to eight men and a dog.

Quite depressing, therefore to read this in the Torygraph -
Yorkshire chief executive Stewart Regan labelled the IPL move a “risky” proposition. “At the end of the day the domestic cricket season has to come first"
Just one reason why South African cricket fans woke up this morning and couldn't quite believe their luck.

Good old predictable counties!

Shouldn't be surprised - it is Yorkshire after all. Not exactly the most forward thinking of counties.
