EAP Trophy, Americas Division 2 T20; Associate and Affiliate Cricket Podcast
A silent moment to mark the sad passing of Phillip Hughes and Hillel Awaskar, but cricket moves on. Andrew Nixon (@andrewnixon79) joins Russell Degnan (@idlesummers) to review Americas division 2 (3:58) which saw Suriname assert themselves as the best team in South America. Papua New Guinea's win in the EAP Trophy is then discussed, along with Fiji's victories to take them back to the WCL. (10:40). Afghanistan dominated the ACC U/19 tournament in Kuwait, but the UAE has improved (19:20). And there have been various matches involving the leading associates, with some good and bad results (21:30). There is news from the ICC: the 10-team world cup has been confirmed, the ICC awards were announced, and there is some disturbing news about the umpiring panel (39:32). And there is news from Afghanistan, and Kenya as we lead up to WCL2 (48:03).
