There's a lot of ignorance of Associate cricket. I'm sure I'd be the same if i were from a test-playing nation, but the general attitude (personified by Scaly Piscine) is to assume they're crap because... well... everyone knows they're crap. They've never heard of any of their players, but that's just used as more evidence of how bad they are.
