Given that the introduction of two divisions, promotion and relegation, has largely been a good thing in the county game, could the principle be extended to the bottom side in Division Two and whoever wins the Minor Counties Championship?
Appreciate the gap between the two leagues is pretty significant, but would incentivising the Minors increase interest/media coverage and help to bridge that gap?
It would effectively become a cricket equivalent of the Conference in football.
Automatic promotion/relegation took decades to be brought in and the old re-election system was pretty corrupt. Couldn't imagine league football without it now...
Thought appreciated - thanks.
