When England lost the Ashes, as usual many fingers were pointed at our domestic structure - particularly a marginalised Championship.
Yet we have degraded the 50 over game much more, it gets absolute bottom billing in the season, most of it is played out in May-early June - any player at a club not qualifying plays just 8 days a year at first-team level and it's over and done for them on June 7.
So, when we succeed at ODIs we can hardly say it's down to the great domestic set-up.
Thoughts? I am curious to know what people think.
