Robert Key is worried about the addition of a second Twenty20 competition to the domestic schedule in 2010.
Key skippered Kent to a second consecutive Twenty20 Cup final on Saturday, although Middlesex prevailed by three runs in a thriller to deny his side back-to-back titles.
The 29-year-old opening batsman has noticed a more gruelling schedule this season with the expansion of the qualifying groups.
And it will become even more demanding from 2010 when there will also be an English Premier League (EPL) coming into operation.
Key believes there needs to be more time between matches so they do not become monotonous for players and spectators alike.
"You get a lot of buzz from Twenty20. I think as far as being a professional sportsmen on a stage, Twenty20 is the best one for a county cricketer," Key said.
"It is also massive from a business point of view for a county like Kent, with a non-Test playing ground, in terms of being able to sell out Canterbury.
"But with Twenty20 they've got to find a way of not overkilling it - and overkill to me is day on, day off, day on, day off. Give people a bit of a build-up to a game.
"It became very hard towards the end of the group stages with the extra pressure, the big crowds, the TV and with the importance of Twenty20 going up and the chance to stake a claim as an individual player like Graham Napier at Essex.
"That takes a lot of mental energy and I think the problem with it this year, much as we need more of it, is we also need a bit more time in between games so it doesn't become monotonous.
"As much fun as it is to play in, with the travelling and maybe playing the next game the following day, can be tough."
"You need to make sure there is a build-up to each game, that people get a couple of days to look forward to it, the players and the punters.
"You don't need two or three different tournaments. My worry with that is if there are two different competitions, who is going to follow it almost. Who is going to understand what is going on?"
Key was disappointed to be dismissed shortly after reaching his half-century when it looked as if he was leading Kent to victory in the final.
He added: "That final was a great advert for Twenty20. I said I'd rather be bowled out for 100 having a good crack rather than ending up 20 short but without ever really looking as if you were going to get close so I thought it was a fantastic effort.
"It was frustrating to get out for 50 odd. The stage was set for me to play a serious Twenty20 innings and get a great victory.
"I always say it is not the blokes who go in and get a good ball or get less than 10 that win or lose games. It is the blokes who get in who win or lose you the game and I was one of those who got in and got out."
