Scotland-Afghanistan and Ireland-UAE I-Cup; Associate and Affiliate Cricket Podcast
Russell Degnan

As the first round of the Intercontinental Cup and World Cricket League Championship continues Andrew Nixon (@andrewnixon79) joins Russell Degnan (@idlesummers) to discuss the most recent matches. Ireland defeated UAE by a heavy margin (4:12) but Scotland and Afghanistan had more rain than play (8:50). In news, there were retirements galore, and more cancellations of projects than good news, with Scotland curtailing their high performance centre, and Indonesia looking to drop cricket from the Asian Games (24:30). And we have previews for the Netherlands-Papua New Guinea matches, Uganda-Kenya, and tournaments in Czech Republic and Rwanda.
