County Championship games could be reduced under ECB plans
The number of County Championship matches teams play in a season could be cut from 14 to 10 with a First Division of six teams, under proposals from the England and Wales Cricket Board.
The ECB’s high-performance review also suggests dedicated windows for the One-Day Cup, T20 Blast and the Hundred.
The review – led by Sir Andrew Strauss – is aimed at improving the success of the England men’s team.
“We must be open-minded to change,” said former England captain Strauss.
