Whatever it takes!!!
Have quietly been a fan of how Pakistan are restructuring their domestic competitions tbh. They also seem to be prioritizing women's cricket which is good to see. I hope these last and are not a flavor of the month stuff like a lot of their decisions seem to be.

I assume that cricket finishes in the Windies with the CPL (currently on) and that the 50 over and 1st class stuff has already finished.

I like the idea of a general thread like this for some of the less discussed comps. Don't know if AUS or NZ needs to be on here, and there's a fair amount of discussion for the SA season usually isn't there?

for such a big country with so many domestic teams the lack of discussion on Indian domestic cricket beyond scorecards on here is weird while other country men discuss even youth level, minor counties and grade cricket
