A 10 team World Cup is starting to sound like a good idea....

Post by HenryBraxton » Mon Apr 22, 2019 7:49 am

As long as those 10 teams are Ireland, Scotland, Zimbabwe, West Indies, Netherlands, UAE, Afghanistan, Hong Kong, Nepal, PNG

This tournament has been far more competitive, played with more passion and had far higher stakes than any other international tournament I’ve ever seen. Almost every game has been close, every third game has been an upset and the standard of cricket has been awesome.

Tbh I’d rather see these teams play when every game is high stakes than the dead runners the new World Cup format is going to promote.

This US Side looking strong, can be more competative with Zimbabwe then UAE. Recently, they smashed a good eough Zimbabwe A side in a practice match.

Some top recruits from India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka and Windies making this US Side looks best till now, in their Cricket History

Zimbabwe will never make it to the World Cup with this format ...The best chance we had is when we lost to UAE..

Wait....Is there a WC in 2019 in UK? I have no idea because I live in UK and there has been minimal marketing and no British white has any idea if there is WC next month, They know about Ashes though which is after WC. ICC, stop sucking India's cock and look toward globalizing this beautiful game before it becomes like field hockey

I'm beginning to think this once sensible and enjoyable forum has been infected by some form of wireless LSD transmission, if our noble and hard working moderators had a month to spare they could delete 80% of the threads and nothing of any interest or value would be lost
