WCL2, ACC T20 and QTV Sports with Tim Brooks; Associate and Affiliate Cricket Podcast
World Cricket League Division 2 concluded with an epic final day that saw Netherlands over-take Nepal and Kenya surpass Canada to survive relegation. Andrew Nixon (@andrewnixon79) joins Russell Degnan (@idlesummers) to discuss what happened and the repercussions (7:20). We also look back at the Dubai Triangular (0:32) and the Asian T20 qualifier won by Oman (3:45). Some of the repercussions were shortly over-turned by an ICC about face. We go through that and the various bits of news from the ICC meeting (37:00), the tournament schedule for the coming year (52:00), and an apparent end-game for USACA. Finally we preview the cricket world cup, and the associate prospects there-in. (60:00).
Prolific writer on associate cricket and newly appointed head of cricket for QTV sports, Tim Brooks (@cricketatlas) also comes on the show to discuss some of their initiatives and the challenges of providing tv coverage in the associate world (20:00). Some technical difficultes mean the sound quality isn't great, but it is worth a listen.
