The ECB is driving force and they've upped the ante very significantly by telling the Birmingham League that at the end of the 2019 season they must cut their membership to two divisions with just ten clubs in each.

If the clubs vote that down, the ECB will then withdraw all funding and its ECB status.

So 28 clubs could well be going back to their feeder leagues. Unsettlingly for those that want to remain, it won't necessarily be the top 20 clubs in 2019 that survive. I understand that those clubs wishing to stay will have to make some kind of application process and membership will be decided on ground criteria etc.

There's going to be some league points awarded for T20 matches, with the 20 clubs split into five groups of four (geographical?) and playing semis and finals. It's all linked to the massive rebranding of the first-class city franchise for 2020.

Lots of devil in the details, most of which are still undecided. But the 2nd XIs will remain.
