Q: Sorry if this has been asked before but have the ECB considered bidding for the Olympic Stadium post 2012 as a regular,Nuteral venue for Finals and maybe an extra test ground (similar to Wembley or Twickenham), My logic in using it as a Finals ground is as i said it would be nuteral, and I can't help thinking that if the Host County such as Middlesex or whoever host the 20/20 finals day, If they reach that stage of the competition they have an unfair advantage.

A: No, not been asked before. Don't think that has seriously been considered. Footbll bids from West Ham and Tottenham seem the favourites

Q: At the end of the final Ashes warm up game against Australia A, The Commentators mentioned a 20/20 game between a Cricket Australia Xl and a team voted for by the fans, Would that work over here?
