Canada @ 2020 Challenge League A (2nd round)

Post by ray » Mon Oct 14, 2019 12:47 pm

The ICC October meeting appears to indicate Malaysia will AGAIN host Challenge League A in 2020.

Challenge League A and B

Malaysia will host the ICC Challenge League A from 14-27 March 2020 whilst Uganda has been appointed to host ICC Challenge League B from 27 July – 9 August 2020.
Of course, it seems quite ridiculous, offering advantage to the same country of hosting twice in such an important series. It also disadvantages northern hemisphere countries like Canada and Denmark who will be playing out of season. Can the ICC not be even-handed in these matters? Namibia got to host 3 tournaments in 5 years and now Malaysia. Why? At least let a Full Member host so no one gets an advantage.

I agree. Also, the terrible smog.

Yup for some strange reason, Malaysia is a very preferred host for a long time. Canada could have easily been the hosts. Having said that we dont know if other countries have even put forward their names to host. Ranjit Saini can answer that.
