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.

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. First Class cricket has no bearing on how the ICC funds Associates (and is of limited use for preparing Associates for the competitions that do determine funding), and is no...

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.

Re: Canada Domestic Season

The ICC Americas qualifier is the tournament in August listed on the Cricket Canada site- USA/Belize/ Panama /Canada – California. Top 2 advance to ICC Americas finals the next year I think.
