Am ticked too, being a Sussex fan.
Not enough games at the county grounds. Same old venues for all the group games hasn't been thought through in terms of spreading the interest et all around the whole country. It'll be the accountants purely choosing the larger capacity grounds to raise as much revenue as possible.
I seem to remember at the 1999 World Cup match the group game between India & South Africa being held at Hove and comments were for a fixture like that, the ground wasn't large enough. That said, as Eric will know, Hove's capacity has since been increased with the new south west stand so the ground could easily have catered to a match not involving England or India.
