It is not just cricket that we should be concerned about. I have been a governor of a number of schools and colleges over the past 25 years, during which there has been a worrying policy of flogging off playing fields and, indeed, school sites to developers.
It will take a good number of years yet for many of our major team sports to recover from this short-term policy of eating the seed corn. No doubt we will recover - we always do - but it would be nice if the nutters were not quite so profligate with our assets.
