Joyce waiting for ICC clearance?

I saw this on cricinfo today, and was wondering if anyone knows any more on this special clearance that Joyce has applied for. According to ICC rules, a player cannot play for 4 years for another country after representing a full member. He probably has another couple of years to go on that, and may miss out on Ireland’s world cup team. Perhaps the special request is to allow him to play for Ireland after less than 4 years, but that also means that he has to take the decision on England right now.

    This is a tough call. Do we want to encourage Associate players to try their luck to play Test cricket with a Full Member with no consequences should they fail? I’d like to see Joyce try to obtain a place with Ireland – they could use more depth, but he knew exactly what he was doing when he played for England at the last World Cup. It doesn’t quite seem right that he could switch countries again after not serving the necessary waiting period.

    Maybe. There would still be consequences of not being able to play for 1 year. I think the onus is really up to the Test team for not making their qualification rules so easy.
