Richard Day started this petition to English Cricket Board

English domestic Cricket is having massive changes enforced on it. This is being done, not only without the consent of the regular county members and people who pay at the gate or watch on TV, but they are openly being told they are irrelevant to the future of Cricket because of age. The latter is not true as many are young and discriminates against those who are older.

The new format and domestic structure are due to come into force in the Summer of 2020. It relegates First Class, 50 over and T20 Cricket to fringe events played at less popular times of the year, and often not on Saturdays, Sundays or Bank Holidays. By weakening these formats it potentially damages the England international teams in these formats for the men's and womens' game.

The form of Cricket proposed to have the key dates, stadia and major financial promotion is The Hundred, with a new format that tears up the established format and laws of the sport of Cricket, is confusing, and has very little evidence of support in the public from cricket and non cricket fans.

The best course of action is for the ECB to hold a series of practical working  meetings with county members and other supporters to discuss and improve the poor and reckless decisions made for the 2020 English and Welsh Summer and subsequent years.

Also that the ECB boards, including the Main Board of Directors should have representatives of Cricket Supporters, probably via the Cricket Supporters Association, on them.

That the sponsors of all domestic competitions , the players, the county and other clubs at all domestic levels and their supporters, who are the game's customers, in future become part of the decision making system to make Cricket democratic once more.
