2021 Word Test Championship Final

Looks like a good contest brewing. If they get 250 overs they might be able to get a result here.

Re: ICC will track test performance of lower ranked teams for including them in test championship : Geoff Allardice

Afghans defeated full strength Bangladesh in Bangladesh and also Zimbabwe in UAE. So, they can compete in asian tracks against the best non asian teams if given an opportunity. Zimbabwe defeated Bangladesh in Bangladesh and Afghans in UAE but have struggled against other sides at home with Zero lev...

Re: ICC will track test performance of lower ranked teams for including them in test championship : Geoff Allardice

ICC should either include Zim, Ireland & Afghan in the championship or should start a Tier 2 championship with promotion relegation system, things shouldn't go like this in longest format 2 tiered system was proposed in 2017 but abandoned mostly because Bangladesh, SL, and Windies opposed the idea....

Re: ICC will track test performance of lower ranked teams for including them in test championship : Geoff Allardice

Whether they play the volume of Test cricket needed to be part of the championship is one of the things we'll be keeping an eye on over this [2021-23] cycle. Ireland don't even play any Tests and both Afghanistan and Zimbabwe play 3 or 4 a year. Getting to 6 Tests per year will be a challenge. ZC, ...

Re: Andy Flower: ICC Hall Of Fame Inductee

Also if those were world class stats then why did Andy Flower only get 4 ODI centuries? This is not an attack on Flower, just a critical analysis. Also Flower in the test arena had his glory moment in the India series, what about in ODIs? Let's not forget the way BT played in the 2015 World Cup. I ...

Re: Andy Flower: ICC Hall Of Fame Inductee

Now I know people will talk about the quality of the opposition but cricinfo breaks it down nicely these days. Quality and context are ultimately important. Flower averaged 35 in an era where 35 was a world class average. Good batsmen averaged 30. We're now in an era where the best batters average ...
