End of Year Review; Associate and Affiliate Cricket Podcast
Andrew Nixon (@andrewnixon79) joins Russell Degnan (@idlesummers) to look back on some of the major themes of the past 12 months: promotion of associate cricket (14:40); the ascension of associate teams to test status (25:25); some of our highlights and players of the year (35:15); and the state of A+A cricket (46:30). There are a couple of tournament reviews, with the Africa Women's Trophy that serves as the regional qualifier (0:20) won by Zimbabwe, and Africa U/19 Girls won by Uganda (05:35), and a women's tournament in the gulf, won by the UAE (07:35). Afghanistan completed their tour of the UAE (10:00) but lost the series; and Kenya turned in some very poor results against Pakistan A (12:48). There is also governance news from Nepal (50:40), more proposed tournaments of questionable value in Canada and Europe (52:50), and some emerging opportunities for players and umpires in full member nations (59:15).

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.
