3TC – I Like It!

If you were struggling to stomach The Hundred then 3TC is likely to make you choke on your cornflakes! But do you know what? Having watched the little explainer video on YouTube… I actually quite like the idea!

Yes it’s another South African cricket competition that isn’t going to get off the ground as anticipated and how practical three-team international matches outside of a major tournament would be is debatable but it seems like it could be really exciting.

One thing the video doesn’t make clear but is presumably easy to figure out is that if a batsman is left on their own then they have to keep walking back to the other end to be on strike even if they ran a single or a three.

Excuse my laziness but please watch the video presented by Mark Nicholas via the link above that does a better job of explaining it than I would. It seems really dynamic and like I say, I like the idea… though it’s probably not desperately necessary to rush to commence it in a coronavirus hotspot in the middle of the South African winter!
