Re: ICC favorite son/daughter (yet again)

"...will just have to sit on their hands for the next
three years."

Not exactly. There are the ODIs and the 2021 T20 WC to aim for. I expect there's head shaking and cursing at the ICC but also discussions of what to do next.

2021 T20 WC

The guys on the emerging cricket podcast remind us that there is a T20 WC in 2021. They say there are plans underway for regional sub qualifiers.

Re: WT20 Qualifier

Oh Holy Cow! Did not see that coming! To me, this is an epic fail for USA (AND ICC 8-) 8-)). Canada definitely should play an inexperienced side to develop for the future or does winning the tournament mean financial bonuses?

Re: WT20 Qualifier

0-2??? I'm gonna say they shouldn't select Cheema anymore. He gets out for very low totals too often.

Re: WT20 Qualifier

The way I see it...

Can 5 points
Ber 5
USA 2
CI 0

Can beats CI and Ber and they're through.
Ber beats CI and they're on 7.
USA beats CI and Ber they're on 6 and need to beat Can.
CI are out.

Obviously NRR might come into play.

Re: WT20 Qualifier

I think England even has plans or at least puts a lot of thought into reaching out to their asian population. With huge drops in participation they'll have to.

Re: WT20 Qualifier

Not really a big game against USA. Beat CI and Bermuda twice and they're through. Of course, weather can upset those plans. Surely, they should make up abandoned games on days off!

Re: Global T20 Canada 2019

Right now, at least, CC has the T20 WC Americas and then, presumably, the global qualifier. Also, the Challenge League. After this fall, though, perhaps not much. I wonder if there are unpaid bills yet from the GT20. Probably.

Re: Global T20 Canada 2019

"There were grave concerns for the broadcast preparations which were behind schedule as, similar to the GT20, budgets were slashed after agreements had been made, resulting in deep frustration felt by contractors and media houses alike." https://www.emergingcricket.com/events/euro-t20-slam/euro-t20-...

Re: Global T20 Canada 2019

Euro Slam cancelled. Financial difficulties of organizers.
