    ECB reveals strategy for English cricket

    The English Cricket Board has announced how it plans to strengthen English cricket through leadership, a vibrant domestic circuit, getting the participation & following of the youth and creating successful English teams. Something to be noted though is the fact that the goal of becoming the best test team was postponed to 2009, presumably since neither Warne nor McGrath would be bowling then. Mike Selvey compares the 2001 and 2005 vision documents. Christopher Martin-Jenkins notes that the plan was announced at a predominantly Asian school in Southall. Derek Pringle points out that the domestic game could suffer in spite of counties getting incentives if they produced national players.

    Last year, the domestic calendar was given a working over.

    The theme though, of "From playground to Test arena", is too similar to Cricket Australia's "Backyard to Baggy Green" strategic plan.

    I know visionary statements need not be taken too seriously all the time. But why cant the BCCI have even half the transparency other boards have?
