Amazing how much cricket has modernised to become more professional. As Butcher says after beating SA in 98 there was no time for most of the players to celebrate as such as they played for their counties the very next day. Imagine that happening now...back then players had even less days off and could go 20+ days solid playing with cup runs and reserve days etc.
At that time the change to 4 day cc was incremental them became the norm...With the Sunday League retained between days 3 and 4...to possibly play elsewhere. As Steve James said in his book at that time it's amazing to think that no one was killed from travelling fatigue.
Very interesting and balanced documentary and funny in places.
Thoughts please from the wise....
