This way even Asia Cup can be scrapped & by making it Afro-Asia Cup ever 2 years, it creates more interest, awareness, Competition & sponsorship for both the regions? Wat say?
No Test nation would be ready to play such a lengthy tournament. It will have 10+10 + 3 = 23 Matches and with 3+3+3=9 (39%) valuable matches (As defined by many not me
). Rather the tournament should be a 12 nation, in 20-20 Format tournament as Follows
Top teams qualify for Super 4 and then Finals. This way we play 3+3+3+3+6+1=19 Matches with 2+6+1=9 Interesting matches ( 47%). Here the matches between test nations would be more sought after as they will be part of Super 4.
The quality of Cricket would be very decent. All the above teams have played ODI's except Nepal. Nepal have been doing very good and by some logic they should have been playing the Asia Cup.
