I think there is room for expansion maybe ACT now and the northern territory in the future.
I see where berry is going look at basketball,look at rugby league or afl how they expanded,often more teams in sydney,adelaide,perth etc,its a more commercial friendly model.Does offer the CA some options and food for thought.
The loss of players to union,league and especially AFL is a huge threat to cricket,how many promising cricketers have gone to AFL brad green for example.If a player is signed on a rookie contract thats 10,000 dollars nothing compared to what they would earn in league,AFL etc.Imagine if soccer australia had offered moises hernqiues a contract or he was signed by a english soccer club for 200 grand.
I think managed right with money put in,players recruited overseas pros for a canberra side it could be up and running and competitive in no time.
The format of 6 teams is a bit outdated.Fact is the comets should never have been sacked in the first place,the CA should have put big money into it rather than put in the 2 hard basket and canberra should have got a major sponser.
