First Class Honours… Nope!

University matches are set to lose First Class status and rightly so. Such an honour should be reserved for competitive matches as well as some tour and A Team etc games. To have university matches hold First Class status compromises the integrity of professional cricket.

Don’t get me wrong, the university system has a part to play in the development of our cricketers and more should be done to put a competition in place…

… just like more could be done for those that don’t attend university.

Yes it’s a thrill for those involved to be able to look at their Cricinfo profile page in years to come but it’s without merit, untidy and illogical. This is a welcome move by cricket’s hierarchy though if history is anything to go by then they’ll probably flip it again in a few years!
