15 years ago 264 would be a competitive TEAM total; now individuals are getting it.

at least the ICC have fought hard to ensure little teams don't play "proper cricket" under the tenuous argument that it would cheapen the record books. so, well done there. did you know they confirmed the decision this week to make the 2019 World Cup a 10-team tournament only? ridiculous. boo-hiss.

Dropped on 4. A sitter by all accounts but fair play to go on like that. Wonder how the fielder feels now

A friend of mine has helped write a book on associate cricket. Will be out for the world cup. Would recommend it.

i'll look out for it, but a name (of the book or the author) would help :fishing:

this was a good piece on the decision and the ICC's bullshit: http://www.cricketeurope4.net/DATABASE/ARTICLES7/articles/000054/005481.shtml

for what it's worth, too, i know some high-ups in Sri Lanka :brow: and while they were "happy" to step in for this series, the players are all pretty pissed off because they're not "ready" for cricket at all. they were basically in offseason mode, doing light training etc, not even netting much... so the opposition here might be a bit undercooked (it's 3-0 already, right?)

There was quite an interesting stat that was put up on Sky that Sharma would have won about 6 Wirkd Cups on his own with the score he got today.

I like Wiggy, he's written some great stuff on the lower levels of international cricket. Miller's a bit of a nob on twitter and as a result i have not really read much of his longer-form...
