    Personally:
    John Davison (Canada).
    JB Burger (Namibia)
    KJ Van Noortwijk (Holland)
    GM Hamilton (Scotland)
    Adding to that list:

    John Blain - Scotland - decent bowler for Yorkshire, good talent, only 25-26 years old. Took 7 for 50-odd against Canada in the ICC 3-day final. There's a batsman called Cedric English (who's born on the Cape, SA and nevertheless plays for Scotland) too who's good.

    van Noortwijk's retired, I think? Didn't play anything last year...

    Khuram Khan and Ali Asad (bowlers) and Arshad Ali (batsman), only Emirates people who are reasonably decent cricketers. Although they're probably all Pakistani originally.

    Don't know much too much about cricket in these parts but i would expect either Holland or Namibia to take the title out.

    I would like to remind y'all that Ireland did beat Surrey in the C&G Trophy last summer, and blitzed a pre-rebellion Zimbabwe side in the summer of 2003. They're far from no-hopers, especially with home advantage and I expect them to qualify.

    From the two groups, I'd back Ireland and the USA to take the places from Group A (is it just me or are the two groups seriously uneven?) with Scotland and any from three of Namibia, Holland or Canada (so long as they have Davison) leading the way in Group B. Expect the final playoff to be between whichever Nam/Hol/Can doesn't make it directly, with the UAE outside bets.

    I'd hope so, but I guess it will be down to whether Warwickshire will allow him to.

    Yup. The ones who will really struggle is Denmark. Their only good player is Søren Vestergaard, and he's pushing 40 soon (plus young Frederik Klokker, but he seems to be more talent than head, and Amjad Khan, but Kent won't let him go).

    Just saw that Norway won ECC Trophy in 2003, pretty impressive and they beat Croatia by 143 runs

    Yeah. Norway were the only unbeaten side in Europe for a while - played 16 games without defeat from the start-up - until we got hammered by Italy.

    It's getting a bit of coverage though, in newspapers and on the occasional TV report (not about results, obviously, just the way the game is going) - I'm crossing my fingers, but most people just seem to think of it as "the weird game all the Pakistanis play"

    Two turf pitches, I think, and a domestic league with 15 teams - all based in Oslo. The second pitch is absolute tripe, no drainage whatsoever and the outfield is completely soggy...the first one isn't too bad, but shared with footballers most of the time.

    I think they are part of the WCQS. They did play in the asian cup, i completely forgot about that.
    Personally i've got a soft spot for Namibia. I cheered them all the way as the pushed England. I was loving Jan Berry Burgers Innings and remember feeling gutted when he got out, realising that might be the end of it.
    Who do you reckon the players to look out for are?
    Personally:
    John Davison (Canada).
    JB Burger (Namibia)
    KJ Van Noortwijk (Holland)
    GM Hamilton (Scotland)

    I think Van noortwijk is a very underrated player. his ODI Batting average is in the 40's.
    Hamilton is great too. His 1999 world cup was excellent and he's now back with the Scots after playing 1 test fot England (made a pair).
    oke time for an update mate...KJ van noortwijk isnt playing for the dutch team anymore, and tbh he totally lost his touch with the bat.
    the guy to look after in that tourny got to be Daan van Bunge, problem is...it clashes with his MCC fixtures so mcc and dutch board need to get around the table and talk, i really hope he plays for us !
    P.S. We beat England at Lord's

    What's the standard of cricket like?
