The state of county cricket

Following on from Cricinfo's report: England ponders six-region option, everyone knows in their head (if not their heart) the current county set up is too weak to really squeeze the level of quality, whether its 4-day or the basis of a Twenty20 content.

It's not going to be an easy change, years of tradition and memories, tears will be shed, but surely common and financial sense say it is the way to go?

No offence to all the pros currently performing, but 10 regional sides would force our current first-class set-up to work harder and the viewing audiences along with the England team should reap the rewards.
