ICC Meeting, Regional T20 Previews; Associate and Affiliate Cricket Podcast
After a short break for lack of cricket, Andrew Nixon (@andrewnixon79) and Russell Degnan (@idlesummers) return to discuss the outcomes - those released anyway - of the recent ICC meeting. We discuss the non-decisions over the 2019 world cup (0:35), and USACA (3:24). And the hosting of the U/19 world cup qualifier in Nepal (5:00) which will hopefully still be able to go ahead, despite the recent disaster, for which we send our thoughts. We touch on the implications of any split, in light of the Essel Group plans to form a breakaway governing body (6:46). In previews, Americas Division One is taking place in Indianapolis (11:36), followed by European Division One in Jersey (15:58), and be sure to check the ICC Europe website for the live-stream of the final day. There are also previews of Ireland's ODI versus England (20:36) and the Namibia versus Hong Kong I-Cup and WCL championship matches in Windhoek (23:40). And there is some future tournament news out of Africa (26:45).
