Re: ICC favorite son/daughter (yet again)

"hard to determine" why USA deserves several times more cash than any other AA?
Actually, pretty easy: ICC still Dreaming The Dream of bringing the world's largest,
wealthiest, sports market into the game. :P Sadly, ICC has been hopelessly lost in the woods chasing
this dream. :oops:

Re: 2019 ICC Americas Regional T20 Qualifier final

Good to see the Shorts back in the picture. They've pretty much dropped off
the radar in international cricket (still don't understand why there's no Bermuda
women's team in the ICC Americas qualifier).

As for GT20...still no official announcement of 2019 dates on their website.

Re: ICC favorite son/daughter (yet again)

USACricket now searching for CEO. Job description says the person will also hire support staff. So along with picking up his salary ICC going to pay his staff support. Will CC demand the same?

Re: WCL Div.2

Very compressed schedule; 6 games in 7 days (if you make the playoff stage).
CC, USACricket better be planning some warm up matches/tourneys or the teams
will be going into this not having played for almost six months.

$40K men

If CC's announcement that they're planning to offer full time contracts to 18 players, with an average of $40K per annum, is true, it'll be one of the most generous arrangements for any Associate. Since this will cost CC more than half a million they better hope Mercuri will keep their promise of ru...

How to do it

How many know there's a pro rugby league in the states that will be starting
its second year in January: www.usmlr.com (Toronto will have a franchise in 2019)? Yet to see
how it will turn out but the King City Cricket Caper people might learn something
about how to start up a pro sports league.

Re: Cricket Canada announcements and news

Also says the 2019 Canada T20 will be held in Toronto and will
have twice as many Canuck players. If true, all teams will again be
playing in just one location. More Canuck players...lower quality :?: :?: :?:
