2023-2031 FTP news, updates, etc

Post by Kriterion_BD »

The new FTP is due sometime in June or July, since the last 8 year FTP was finalized and publicized at that time in 2014.

This thread will be for any information pertaining to the new FTP and not the existing one.

With the ODI Championship scrapped, Mukuhlani is going to have to use all his negotiating skills and them some to get some bilateral series against top 8 sides.

Predictions? I think Pakistan will be the New Zealand of this FTP in not touring or hosting us due to poor performances in recent series.
India, Australia and South Africa will probably tour but not host. That leaves Afghanistan, Ireland, West Indies, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka who we should get home and away tours.

I hope there is some plan for a balanced FTP. A test fund would also be a very positive step.

I hope we use the old trick of getting teams to warm up here before they go to South Africa.

Only if you can't get any stand alone tours. I don't see why ZIM/IRE/AFG can't play a one off Test + 3 white ball games against any WTC side. It takes a max of 14 days.

If for example you got South Africa and West Indies in for one off Tests one year, India and Bangladesh the next and then got 2-3 Tests amongst ZIM/IRE/AFG each year you are already looking at 4-5 Tests a year which is far more volume than at present.

Lol why are they asking him questions about the players? This guy knows as much about as cricket as my long-dead aunt :lol:

NZ, WI and Afghanistan 'are coming' - does he mean 'coming up' or 'they are coming to Harare'. Feels like 90% of our cricket in the past few years has been at home. It would be nice to have some away tours.....

It begs the question why these crazy new ideas like adding depth and playing more cricket weren't tried before :lol:
I'm not sure how they take credit for bog standard stuff that should be ongoing and if they've failed to have done it before why are they still there? I mean what's changed that they are now doing the absolute bare minimum to keep us alive, and on top of that having the audacity to try and take credit for it.
We have fallen so far behind its mind numbing.

Has anybody heard any further news about Gary Ballance?
I guess his arrival is not imminent. It would seem he'll be here at the end of the County season.
