Michael Vaughan suggests a shorter English County season

Amidst the global pandemic, the cricket boards are trying their best to figure out solutions for their stranded fixtures. Whilst this all, the former English cricketer Michael Vaughan has suggested a shorter English county season with no overseas players.

“You have to look at every area where you can save a few quid. Traditionalists will go mad at this, but these are unprecedented times. In the next two years, could you look at not having overseas players for the four-day game”, Vaughan told a popular news network.

Vaughan signed off by saying, “Four-day cricket costs the game ... it is a cost that could, just for a couple of years, be worth reducing. If you reduced it from 14 to 10 games, you'd miss the games but I don't think it would be a huge problem for a couple of years.”

England Cricket Board (ECB) has already postponed the cricket season in England till 1st July which will result in the cancellation of 9 County fixtures. On the other hand, ECB is also seeking options to shift the fixtures of the England team to other countries.
