BATFAST CRICKET SIMULATORS AT THE INTERNATIONAL CONFEX 2017 Londoners warmed up for a summer of exciting cricket to be hosted in England by taking on iconic bowlers on the BATFAST Cricket Simulator at the International CONFEX Show in the Kensignton Olympia.

This week, we explore what the market forecast for cricket looks like and shed some light to see if the size of the market is sufficient enough to attract business and innovation.
Arsenal have had a mixed start to the football season, but one thing is for sure. They are great fun to watch even in the cricket field. Wonder if they'd finish fourth if they had a cricket team in the Middlesex Sunday 2nd's League!! :)
The ECB is actively debating a reduction in the amount of Test cricket in an English summer - down from seven Tests to as low as five - to make room for a more integrated professional structure which could see England players performing in a restyled T20 competition. In a wide-ranging review, where nothing is seen as sacrosanct, a return to three-day first-class cricket and a single-division County Championship is also on the table for discussion.
Keen to see where they finish at the world Cup down under next year...
