    Icon6 Minor counties in britain

    Alo , im new on here but i was just wondering what the equivalent to one of the american cricketing sides is compared to in britaint like a very large succesful county like sussex or something or closer to a minor county like buckinghamshire , that i play for although i am only 14 i still play for part of the junior academy , i also could play for surrey , but any way the main part of this post is to find out if it would be any good coming over to america when im older to come over to america and see if would triumph at getting into these american teams since the pay is relatively good.

    if money is your reason to play the sport and you dont back yourself to make a career out of playing for a county or country, i guess its always an option...however I couldnt imagine playing this sport just for financial reasons

    The standard's likely to be slightly higher than an English Minor County senior side.

    You won't get professional employment in the ProCricket unless you're a fringe (or, most likely, ex-) International, and you're more likely to succeed as an Indian or West Indian due to the huge ex-pat market.

    Most county junior cricket is a chasmic step below any of this, so there's a long, long way to go yet, although having said it does vary from county to county and district to district. Still, unless you're at least in the regional age group squad then you don't have much chance.
