    Considering the potential money making at hand here for the Royals brand, I'm sure Worcs can hold them to a nice ransom that would pay for completely new facilities, and perhaps their own fleet of jets with money left over for diamond encrusted cricket balls.

    All about making more money surely. The bigger the brand, the more pots that fingers are in, the wider the money-making potential, the more money for the owner of the brand, as well as the individual clubs.
    Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    Not quite sure how I feel toward this really, have an awful lot of good will towards Warney after all he did for us so I guess I am prepared to go with it and we have already have Dimi and now Lumb play in the IPL.

    Weird idea IMO. Especially when it comes to thebenefits it will have on the actual cricket developments of either of these 4 clubs.

    All these money making schemes in T20 *Sighs*

    You can't own the Hampshire, Victoria teams, they are not private entities as far as I know. Nor do I think ECB or ACB have put those domestic sides up for sale....

    Worcestershire chief executive Mark Newton, whose Twenty20 team is already called the Royals, said he had no issue with Hampshire being given the same name.

    "We have known about this for a while and we have no problem with Hampshire being Royals," Newton told BBC Sport.
    What? Really? I hope they got a nice seven figure settlement.

    Also mentions a little more about players being able to move between sides.

    I'm not sure how that'll work though. IPL won't get rid of two overseas players per side....I don't think Victoria or Hampshire would like that either. And if they will say that if a Hampshire player wants to play in the IPL, they can only do so for the Royals, they might run into some restraint of trade I bet.

    So I don't really see how that would work practically.

    Indeed. Haven't read anything about this specifically, but it would crimianl if ECB, ACB & WICB put their sides up for sale. I sort of doubt it though..

    Minor point people, but the ECB don't own any club and I rather suspect the ACB and WICB are similar.

    Yeah, exactly, Hampshire are their own free entity, albeit heavily reliant on the ECB.

    Well yes they probably dont "own" any of those clubs, but their influence over them is strong enough to prevent such a thing happening you would think.

    Plus with WICB, the Trinidad team is like a national board in itself - rather than a club.

    Would be interesting to see how CA react to this, given they've spent a lot of time focussing, marketing and controlling Twenty20 in the country over the past year. It's most likely a moot point anyways, with the club system possibly taking over here Victoria might not have much longer left in Twenty20s.
