This is Moneyball: Cricket shake-up incoming with launch of The Hundred - is it all about the money or can it help grow the game?
This week, broadcaster Georgie Frost and assistant editor Lee Boyce are joined by cricketer and author Isabelle Duncan, to talk about The Hundred, which is set to launch next year and what it could do for the game (and its finances). How do the 18 county clubs feel about the move, who will be involved, is it all about the money, can a draft system work and can it help encourage the next generation of cricketers to get involved? Elsewhere in the world of cricket, they talk Mankading, grassroots level, whether the old format will die off, why the game is booming in… Germany and what football can learn from the way women's cricket has boomed. Also on the show, Tottenham Hotspur finally move into their new ground this week with a game against Crystal Palace. We speak to broadcaster and Spurs supporter David Levene who has visited the new stadium about his first impressions – and whether it will spell a stint of success on the pitch. And Georgie gets caught up in a protest at Craven Cottage, as Fulham FC fans fightback against high ticket prices.
