    Back on topic: first-class games are a great idea...but it has to be covered by some funding, I'm afraid. The biggest problem the minnows face are that all their players are "happy amateurs", whereas cricket is a game where professionalism really is required. Especially first-class cricket. Nobody can afford to take four days in ten off work regularly - and add training to that as well.
    Precisely...

    which is why it has to be organised very carefully indeed and adequately funded. Unfortunately, first class cricket is a money drain anyway because it's not something specatators (for the most part) want to pay to go and see - and yet it is the grass roots of the professional game.

    Wouldn't introducing competitions like Twenty20 help in getting the games up and running?
