Associate and Affiliate Podcast: Germany with Andre Leslie
Russell Degnan

The associate and affiliate cricket podcast is an attempt to expand coverage of associate tournaments by obtaining local knowledge of the relevant nations. If you have or intend to go to a tournament at associate level - men's women's, ICC, unaffiliated - then please get in touch in the comments or by email.

Deutsche Welle journalist and Cricket Germany batsman, Andre Leslie (@andreleslie) joins Andrew Nixon (@andrewnixon79) and myself. We talk about the World Cricket League Division Seven, cricket development in Germany, particularly the difficult aim of promoting cricket in the local media, and discuss his hopes for European Division One in July. In the news: we note the proliferation of tours to full member nations, and chat about the distribution of TAPP funding and ICC priorities.

Associate and Affiliate Podcast: Germany with Andre Leslie
An excellent analysis by Andre Leslie. Regarding womens cricket in Germany, I agree with his comments. It is growing all the time and the DCB is putting in a lot of resources. In contrast to the mens game, the women playing Cricket in Germany are almost all German born (and heritage). The German Womens side will be travelling to Bologna, Italy, in August for an international tournament.
