Rolling news

We're now used to what the media call rolling news but is just the same story repeated endlessly to fill up space and so it was amusing to see yesterday's morning papers saying Ricky Ponting is set to retire from International cricket and is looking for a county to captain and then see the evening papers saying the opposite.
The much more important news is that there will be a reduction from 16 to 10 in the number of group stage T20 games in 2012. Is it possible that the ECB is listening to the cricketing public? and does that mean that the ridiculous notion of having 8 teams (14 matches) in the First Division of The County Championship and 10 ( not sure how many matches but not the mathematically logical 18) in the Second will be dropped?
