I don’t understand this fascination with Rosebank CC.. they are a successful club their NMCA record. Good luck to them in DVCA.

let’s be honest here, if they pay their players so what.
Let’s move on. Good to see some positive signs from the DVCA Board with start dates etc.

Will be interesting to see how it all works
exactly, for e.g they dont hang around for drinks after games, tbh most clubs i played against in dvca dont either.

Anyone else surprised playing additional overs did not get up? Even 40 to 50? I could not believe the majority of clubs did not support a hybrid style format. Not sure it will do anything for development of the game with bowlers restricted and batsmen who take a bit of time to get going shunnted into lower X1's. I wonder how many committees sought input from their players or did they make the decisions on behalf of the players???

It would have been great to watch some 50 over cricket. But at the same time, 40 over cricket is a pretty good format at well with how early games are probably going to finish.
Those boys that want to bat slow can practice batting a bit quicker.
40 overs is still 240 balls.

Yeah I would have liked to see 45/50 overs in the top flight but I think the deciding factor was all the times play will be stopped for covid reasons (cleaning the ball/hands ect) the day could drag on

Any talk on bowling restrictions eased slightly to 10 overs?
I know nothing with the amount of overs and we're sticking with the 40, but does anyone else agree it should be 10 not 8? Hard to find 5/6 bowlers..
