Re: Global T20 Canada

^ According to the Faraz Sarwat article (linked in the 3rd post above) one of the CC directors mentioned a draft was supposed to be held, in Dubai of all places. No information has been forthcoming since and time is ticking. The Global T20 is to be discussed at a Cricket Canada special General Meeti...

Papua New Guinea and Hong Kong demoted to WCL2 for 2019. UAE and Nepal that squeaked by Canada (on net run rate and a last ball victory) in February take their places as ODI nations.

Re: Associate 50 ov & First Class competitions 2019-2023

I wouldn't mind seeing the Intercontinental Cup scrapped in favour of more 50 over matches or a new T20 Associate competition.

Re: Caribbean Premier League (and Americas Associates)

Yes, you're right. It was one thing to help the Americans play catch-up after years of ICC inaction during the Dainty administration's tenure. However, it has gotten out of hand. At some point Cricket Canada, the Bermuda Cricket Board and the rest of the Americas boards have make some noise in prote...

Re: ICC favorite son/daughter (yet again)

The ICC just seem to be spending money on showy things like tours, not on the extremely difficult task of increasing the numbers of women playing the game.
