Forty over league offers possibilities

I've not yet reported on the draw, but think we could do fairly well in the following group:

Unicorns, Derbyshire, Yorkshire, Kent, Warwickshire, Sussex, Northants.

Sussex and Warwickshire will probably start favourites, but we have done well against Yorkshire and Kent this season and I don't expect Northamptonshire to be such a force next year. Their key players are aging and cannot go on forever.

The Unicorns have to be beatable and at least we have avoided the Netherlands. Sad to relate on a personal note, no Scotland, so no home game for me.

Still, there's always Yorkshire at Scarborough.

This competition needs quarter-finals. If not, and only the top team in each group qualifies then half of the matches are meaningless as we find out every year.
