    Who will replace zimbabwae if...

    I was reading this HEADLINE ARTICLE on cricinfo and wondered after reading that if zimbabwae does infact fold out of the asia cup tournament (Which is very likely) then who will replace them? Don't feel like researching, but who is already in the asia cup tourney?

    well i would think that the Asia cup would consider all the asian nations. But drifting from the point i hope Zimbabwe's test status is stripped soon because they are in absolute shambles & are worst than Bangladesh now. So for the sake of preserving the standard of test cricket Zim has to go..

    The Asia Cup, is slowly being changed to the Afro-Asia Cup, so it will be Kenya or UAE replace them in that comp. If im not mistaken the comp currently contains Sri Lanka, India, Pakistan, Bangladesh and South Africa.

    Either Kenya or Ireland although I think Kenya deserves it more.

    If you guys are talking about a replacement for Zimbabwe in Test Cricket as whole, i serious doubt anyone will replace them. But if someone did replace them, then you have to consider the fact Ireland, Scotland and Holland all have better depth then Kenya. Kenya have a good 1st XI, but have next to no depth and have no real world class players coming through.

    Namibia would be nice, but they are probably not strong enough yet (although they'd still probably beat Zimbabwe atm)

    hopefully no-one will replace them in test cricket,players are already playing too much cricket,they don't need forgone walkovers of Zimbabwe.

    2.Scotland( depth and friends with the ECB, playing one day league etc.)
    3.Ireland(depth! and big future)
    4.Holland(depth, good development going on.....)
