Team Name Suggestion Theme for The Hundred Franchises

The suggestion is that the team names for franchises participating in The Hundred won’t have geographical references.

My suggestion for team names is that we combine colours and trees. I found doing this alarmingly fun!

Alabaster Aspen

Cyan Cottonwoods

Emerald Elders

Blue Yew

Burgundy Beech

Celestial Blue Sycamores

Deep Space Sparkle Service Tree

Indigo Cedars

Green Apple

Jet Elm

Monochrome Basswoods

Opal Maples

Pine Green Pines

Red Oaks

Scarlet Sequoias

Sonic Silver Birch

Violet Ash

White Willows

#FFFFFF Onyx

Flippin’ ‘eck!

Firstly, please let me be clear. I don’t mind change. I’m grateful for change in the past and there are changes that I’d welcome in the future… but this is embarrassing!

The Big Bash is set to replace the coin toss with the Australian backyard tradition of flipping a bat. This is professional sport right?

I’m all for trying something different in cricket, as has been done in the English County Championship. Alternative methods could be that the away team, the team highest in the league or the higher run scorers in a tournament get to choose whether to bat or bowl first but a bat flip, seriously!

We’ve got The Hundred coming to English cricket and the bat flip to the Australian game. What next? A Kabaddi fight between the captains before an IPL match?

A Brand Spanking New Audiocast!

Hi all

It’s been a while but here’s a brand spanking new audiocast. Not much prep went in to this but I thought that the Commonwealth Games merited a mention. What a great opportunity it could be to help provide more exposure to Associate nations and cricket in general.

Many thanks for following and bye for now.
