    Wait for the badges to come out and let Cameron Carter loose on them.

      They should do what minor league baseball teams do. Put out a list of six name options that nobody likes. Then hire a consultant to come up with some better ideas and let the fans vote.

        Trent Chihuahuas
        Birmingham Rumbleponies
        Manchester Trash Pandas
        London Blue Wahoos
        Wales Lugnuts
        Southern Railriders
        ...

        It would make as much sense as the current selection.

            They're still better than the IPL names (Knight Riders, Royal Challengers and Super Kings being the worst) and that's somehow survived.

              The website Southernbrave.com and Twitter account @southernbrave have already been taken. They belong to a Texas based country band called Southern Brave.

                There is a Belfast franchise in the Euro T20 Slam, which is due to hold it's first edition in August/ September. The six teams have fairly dull names - Amsterdam Kings, Belfast Titans, Dublin Chiefs, Edinburgh Rocks, Glasgow Giants, Rotterdam Rhinos.

                There won't be any games in Belfast - the first ten games all take place in Amstelveen, the next ten in Edinburgh and the last ten at Malahide, where the knockout stages will also be held.

                  Cheers Zeb. Suppose Belfast could have used Cranes/ Wardrobes/ Lilliputians are our locally marketable name

                    I won’t be watching, but if there has to be a racist name, why do “we” have to have it?

                      E10's suggestion of "Metropolitan Elite" for the name of the Surrey franchise is too brilliant for words.

                        Indeed, though I was also quite taken with the "London Prices".

                          Have we covered the fact that the "Surrey" side in this godforsaken farce will be called, and I kid you not, Oval Greats?

                          Hellfire, that is a pile of shit.

                            Oval Fruits would be better. With the youth team Oval Teens...

                              Oval Greats seems to have been the equitable solution by which nobody quite got what they wanted.

                              I'd have gone with London X, just to enable any reports of disappointing ticket sales to appear beneath the headline London X: No Sell Out.

                                It seems Wales isn't even allowed to have its name in a franchise for this abomination, let alone its own national side ;

                                The Hundred: Cardiff franchise could be 'Western Fire'

                                  But Welsh Fire does bring back memories of holiday cottages, doesn't it?

                                    10 ball overs but the bowler can be switched after 5 balls. Will they actually call them 'overs' though?

                                      "Bowler"?

                                      "Pitcher", surely?

                                        Here's a bit of maths fun. Maths that I'm sure the ECB has done. If The Hundred is going to sell more tickets than the T20 Blast, it will have to attract more than 26,000 spectators to each fixture.
