Is Twenty20 too much of a good thing?
Normally, Andrew Flintoff returning to the England fold would be the big talking point in cricket.
But even Freddie was overshadowed on Wednesday when the England and Wales Cricket Board announced the creation of an English Premier League, plus other reforms to the county structure.
The most important aspect of the reforms is that the County Championship remains intact and robust.
There was a real concern that a three-way conference system might have been introduced to free up room for yet another one-day tournament but common sense has prevailed...
The success of cricket in England will depend on the quality of its Test team, and the preparation of our players for that is paramount.
The 40-over format is irrelevant to the modern game - no one else plays it in the world - and although it was hugely successful here in the early days of one-day cricket, there seems little point in continuing with it when there is also a 50-over competition which will be run along exactly the same lines as one-day internationals.
So far, so good!
We have all been speculating about what format the much anticipated EPL would take, and now we know.
Some people continue to argue that a franchise, city-based tournament, would work but I remain entirely unconvinced by that.
Besides, English cricket needs the geographical spread that the 18 counties provide.
Market research suggests that people want more Twenty20 cricket in July and August, and now they will be able to watch it throughout the summer as not merely one, but two competitions - including the EPL - run side by side.
It is too much, of course, but the administrators are hell bent on squeezing as much money out of this shortened form of the game as possible.
There are some serious questions of the EPL that need answering, not least its identity.
Apart from the fact that it will include two overseas teams, what will the difference be between the EPL and the domestic competition?
What will make it stand out, or make it special? I can't think of anything.
And what about the overseas players - has this been thought through? Can it be possible, as the result of an IPL-style auction, that an overseas player can appear for two different counties in the two competitions? Goodness knows!
My view is that this seems rather hurried and, as a consequence, there are too many questions left unanswered.
Where, for example, will the current quota of Test cricket sit in this rapidly crowded summer - we have not mentioned the proposed Stanford quadrangular tournament or the Champions League?
This will certainly test the stamina of even the staunchest Twenty20 supporter, as well as its long-term popularity.
Meanwhile, back to Test cricket and a certain Flintoff playing in his first Test match for 17 months.
