RIP Fardin Qayyumi (AKA "cricket player"; "Bob"), 1/11/1990 - 15/4/2006
I have a feeling he'd want to play for a country that qualifies for World Cups!Originally Posted by BoyBrumby

- As featured in The Independent.
"The committee discussed the issue of illegal bowling actions, and believed that there are a number of bowlers currently employing suspect actions in international cricket, and that the ICC's reporting and testing procedures are not adequately scrutinising these bowlers."
- Even the ICC's own official press release thinks things must change

Mine doesn't, yet I qualify for one. Weird world, eh?!Originally Posted by Craig
TBF I did say might qualify. Although, that said, I'd say for someone born in London with an Irish surname there's a better than 50/50 shout they have at least an Irish grandfather.
Craigos is Irish?Originally Posted by Craig
Heard on the radio today that Killkenny has stated to Graham Arnold that he wants to play for Australia....Originally Posted by Cloete
He has played a bit of 1st team football for Birmingham this season, so will be interesting...
I other news Mark Bosnich is reportedly taking a contract up with Conference Team Gray's Athletic... He has reportedly stated he wants to get back to the Premiership...
Well Guus is going to Russia after the World Cup, so who do you guys think should coach as after the WC, another overseas coach or local. Any of you guys know the coaching background of our current co-assistant coach Johan Neeskens?
Just noticed that bit. I'm pretty sure you can't represent another country after playing under-21 or senior games for one.Originally Posted by Cloete
wow, just saw this, Kilkenny is a real gem, just looks so special on the ball.
IIRC he only played for England U20 btw
Think they changed the rule a while back. Should be called "Cahill's law" 'cos he was the driving force in getting it changed. He played for Western Samoa Under-14s which debarred him from playing for the crims until the change.Originally Posted by steds
It's a bit of a mess tho, with no consistency. Kanoute was allowed to play for Mali despite having played for France U-21s & Ben Thatcher (boo! hiss!) played for our U-21s (IIRC he was captain too) before playing full internationals for the Taffs courtesy of a Welsh grandfather, but JLloyd Samuel can't get permission for a switch to Trinidad now. I think FIFA's ruling was he's too old now (at 24) to switch. Which seems a bit tight.
Reference Samuel, there was a time when those over a certain age could switch.
Jlloyd only found this link after that age, so rules is rules...
