English cricket chiefs have handed the sport a £30m cash injection in a bid to develop the club game and improve facilities around the country.
Among the plans Giles Clarke, chairman of the English and Wales Cricket Board, is keen to implement is the erection of floodlights at every county ground.
The move is designed to give fans more opportunities to see matches live.
Money will also be made available to improve coaching, ground drainage and access to the game in schools.
