    European T20 League

    Because the world needs another T20 League...

    In fairness, this seems a pretty cool concept -- two city-based franchises from each of Ireland, Scotland and the Netherlands. Games played across all three countries in August to September. Up to 5 OS players in the XI.

    Sounds like Dublin/Belfast, Edinburgh/Glasgow for Ireland and Scotland respectively. And they've apparently negotiated for 10 seasons upfront.

    Awesome. I'd be so pumped for this if it wasn't T20, but to be fair it probably wouldn't exist at all without T20, so I'll take it.

    Yea been following the Instagram pages for this for a while now. Should be interesting. Always good to see an alternative to English club/country cricket as a source of income for cricketers within Europe.
