Sorted
Because a thing seems difficult for you, do not think it impossible for anyone to accomplish.

wtf is with this 100 thing? root playing for trent, bairstow playing for wales. northern superchargers? is it 1988 again? it feels like the beginning of the RL superleague with all this marketing and ludicrous branding, for a game that'll probably be played in front of 3 men and a dog. what a load of fucking nonsense.

i presume the ladies aren't plying against the gents, but they give you that impression.
increasing doubt, decreasing hope, even my imaginary friend went and changed his mind.

The Hundred.
A difference is expected - but this much? I had no idea.
Figures from the Beeb
Men
There are seven set salary bands, with up to two players to be picked at each of the following levels: £125,000, £100,000, £75,000, £60,000, £50,000, £40,000 and £30,000. Captains will receive a bonus of £10,000.

Women
The women's seven salary brackets are: £15,000, £12,000, £9,000, £7,200, £6,000, £4,800 and £3,600. The captains will receive a £1,200 bonus.

Unfortunately the media coverage and marketing aimed at kids will probably result in large crowds interested mainly in high numbers of sixes and will further diminish interest in County Championship cricket. As such, the breeding ground for Test players will become smaller. The ECB should have looked to improve the quality of County Cricket adopt a short term position by introducing another form of limited over cricket.

I hope the 100 dies in a ditch with other monsters but I doubt that will happen.
