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.
