Opinion: Making the best take on the worst…

I have mentioned this before. I think what is needed is to have a yearly 10 day tournament, on the same footing as the world cricket league, having the bottom 3 test teams taking on the top 3 associates. In the current set up, it would be a tournament featuring WI, Ban, Zim, Ken, Sco and Ned. This would allow the 3 associates with a shot to flex their muscle against those teams that they are likely to beat. Although, in my opinion, WI is going to be much stronger for all the others, Ken still has a better chance of beating them than say….. Australia.

In a way things are moving forward in this direction, though not on the same footing. Ireland and Holland are going to be playing a triangular against WI after the world cup. Scotland just toured Bangladesh, and Ken has been having a good go at both Bangladesh and Zimbabwe. A home series against Zim is what Kenya would like to have at the momment.

    Amen to that!

    I think a lot will depend on how the Associates fare at the World Cup. If they put up a good showing, they will add weight to their side of the argument. If they don’t, then it will make life very difficult indeed in terms of securing more games against Test teams. At least until the next WC rolls around.
