News: Scotland to make “All the right moves” …

Hmmm…… ambitious indeed…..

T20 championship, 15 players on part time contracts, $50,000 per year for the domestic game, increasing playing numbers by 20% (which in their case is about 4K out of 20K), 700 new coaches, improvement of facilities…..

Nice…… now lets see if they can actually do it……

Additionally, they have made another move, which I mentioned while thinking out loud a year or 2 back on this blog. They are going to have the Scottish U19 participate in the Premier league in Scotland. The U19s will have a very tough go in those games, playing against older players who are more experienced and physically stronger. It is a great way for a country to expose thier U19 players to tougher cricket. My point, which was essentially mentioned only as a wild idea, was to not only have this, but also have the U15 national team playing in the u19 domestic league, and the U13 playing in the U15 domestic league.

    That’s $50,000, not $50million! Cricket Scotland would kill for that much!
