News: ICC suspends USA

They are dropped from WCL Div 3, and it will be very unlikely for them to get through to the ICC Trophy 2009…….

All I can say is….. can this farce that is USA cricket get any worse?

    Well yes it can.

    I heard a number of rumours on a recent business trip that raised some alarm but need some further confirmation on them over the next few weeks.

    What happens to the WCL Div 3 then?…Will it continue as a 7-team event?…I don’t think it’s even possible to promote one team from Div 5 into Div 3 and give an additional team the chance for WC qualification from Div 5…But then, atleast USA cannot get into the ICC HPP now 🙂

    A quick roundup on today’s warmup games: Bermuda were as usual pathetic…so were Scotland especially while batting..Kenya aren’t getting disgraced..But, Ireland nearly pulled it off…they would probably be disappointed with the result considering they had SA 91-8 and then were themselves 134-4 with an asking rate of 5 an over…Running SA so close, that too in hot, alien conditions is quite good..they can be a force to reckon with in their group..

    What is wrong with U.S. cricket? Ever since I’ve been following them, almost every year they’ve had some controversy or setback (largely down to their own making.)

    Dr. Gul,

    How’s that possible?…On what basis can the ICC pick Afghanistan ahead of the other contenders?…

    Afghanistan were picked for division five as strongest contender, and it whould be logical to promote them cuz there is no other country which has a strong case as they have….and they can compete at that level more importantly

    I strongly support Gul Khan`s comment.

    I agree, Afghanistan are probably the strongest contenders, with Nepal in second place, and we all want both those countries to succeed. But the ICC has to at least try to be fair and pick countries based on actual past results – that’s why Oman are in Division 2, even though they’d probably struggle to make Div 5 now.

    Well…Argentina is the team that has been asked to replace USA in the WCL Div 3 event to be held in Darwin, Australia in the last week of May 2007…With the ICC maintaining secrecy on such issues, it’s not known on what basis Argentina were picked from Div 5 ahead of other teams such as Afghanistan…But more importantly what this means is that Argentina will now get two shots at making the 2009 WC qualifiers, which is good for them…

    The answer to that is quite simple Ram……. ICC picked the next best team from the same region as USA….. Caymans was already there, so Argentina was it……..

    Why promote the next best team from the SAME region?…USA made it to the WCL Div 3 by virtue of their international rankings, not by regional standings which means it makes sense to select the highest ranked team from WCL Div 5 for promotion…
