2012 Twenty20 Cup schedule

There’s little point criticising the 2012 county cricket fixture list. They’d made a report saying how they might change it before it had even been released. That said, we still find the Twenty20 Cup schedule bizarre.

They play every day for a month. Then they play quarter finals two-and-a-half weeks later. Then they play the semi-finals and final another month after that.

For a sport so besotted with momentum, they sure know how to screen its calls and forget its birthday.


Mike Gatting wasn't receiving the King Cricket email when he dropped that ludicrously easy chance against India in 1993.


Why risk it when it's so easy to sign up?


  1. Don’t you see? This is a cunning plan to decide who will win even before they play. Because clearly, during the final, only one team will hit the ground running. Therefore it stands to reason that the other team will just hit the ground, forgetting the running part. This in turn will mean that, after about forty overs or so, we the spectators, will KNOW that the team that won won because it hit the ground running. Bi-winning if there ever was one.

    1. There’s always the chance that one of the semi-finals will be decided because one team has forgotten that it has qualified and neglects to turn up.

  2. Ideally a team would build up so much momentum that they would actually travel forward in time and arrive at the finals ready to go. That’s the only way this makes sense.

  3. It’s all part of the excitement isn’t it? You pop along for the second day of a championship game to find out they are playing unicycle frisbee instead and the cricket is being played in Dubai by werewolves.

    That literally does happen. Literally.
