Friday 09 March 2012
A proposal to cut the County Championship by two matches and play four more Twenty20 games from 2014 has been agreed in principle.The suggestion was made in a review of the game by David Morgan, the former president of the International Cricket Council.
The England & Wales Cricket Board has approved the principles of the review, which also suggest changing the 40-over competition to 50 overs.
The ECB's chief executive, David Collier, and managing director of the professional game, Gordon Hollins, have been asked to produce a plan aimed at ensuring the game's financial sustainability.
