It's a quite radical move, effectively extending the clubs' competitive period by two months, but has received negligible attention, even though they are participating in the West Indies' official 50 over cup.
Even though Kent will be playing the USA, which is a great story, the cricket media would rather focus on anyone in the England set-up failing to be in bed by 10pm, while of course the mainstream sports media is more interested in someone signing a loan deal at AFC Fylde.
For the digital age, coverage seems scant, and I do not know if there is commentary on any games, but please post if you know of anything. There was some very simple fixed webcam coverage at at least one venue last year.
Given that coverage is so poor, please post any news, views, links, etc., here!
