    *Official* ICC Inter-continental cup 2006

    I am surprised that nobody cared to start a thread for this and it starts tomorrow Now, as I tend to support minnows, so I am staring this thread.

    Heres the schedule -

    Date Match Venue
    23 - 26 Mar 2006 Challenge Match: Namibia v Nepal Namibia
    29th Mar - 1st Apr 2006 Kenya v Netherlands Kenya
    11 - 14 May 2006 Scotland v Namibia/Nepal Scotland
    18 - 21 May 2006 Ireland v Namibia/Nepal Ireland
    29 July - 1 Aug 2006 Canada v Kenya Canada
    12 - 15 Aug 2006 Canada v Bermuda Canada
    17 - 20 Aug 2006 Scotland v Ireland Scotland
    9 - 12 Nov 2006 Kenya v Bermuda Kenya
    21 - 24 Nov 2006 Netherlands v Bermuda South Africa
    5 - 8 Dec 2006 Netherlands v Canada South Africa
    31 Jan - 3 Feb 2007 UAE v Scotland Shahjah UAE
    9 - 12 Feb 2007 UAE v Ireland Abu Dhabi UAE
    tba UAE v Namibia / Nepal Namibia/Nepal
    tba Final tba

    Its good that the Inter-continental cup has taken a global format than a regional format and now the 2 best teams will fight it out in the final. In the regional format, it made the European group tougher with 3 top non-test teams playing. Now, it will be played in a more even format. Best of all, the Inter-continental cup will have 4-day matches this year as opposed to 3-day matches in the earlier tournaments.

    The Inter-continental cup, starts with a play-off match between Namibia and Nepal tomorrow and the winner of this match, gets to be in the 8 teams which play in the Inter-continental cup 2006. Nepal, have a strong u-19 team which won the Plates beating New Zealand and South Africa and nearly beat Zimbabwe before losing in a thrilling last over by just 2 runs. Also, they came close to beat England as well, but lost their way in the middle. Nepals senior team hasnt been too bad and they thrashed UAE last year in the Inter-continental cup and got a ranking which helped them to qualify for the play-off for this years Inter-continental cup.

    Namibia, were one of the teams who played the 2003 World cup and missed out on 2007 World cup qualification due to a loss to UAE in the play-offs. Their u-19 team, threw a disappointing performance in the u-19 world cup as well.

    Nepal must be the favourites, just like the U19 WC!

    A tired, demoralised Kenya without Tikolo v Netherlands should be fun.

    Hope there's more cricinfo coverage this year - session-by-session updates aren't that good...

    Namibia v Nepal:

    Match delayed by rain. Heavy rain forecast for the weekend.

    Brilliant weather for a play-off qualifying match...

    warm up against Gloucs before Kenya-Netherlands
    Gloucestershire 208-7 (50 overs) (Weston 1, Adshead 0, Ali 26, Spearman 4, Taylor 58, Gidman 53, Windows 39, Hardinges 4 no, Ball 2 no; Stelling 10-3-23-2, Reekers 10-1-38-2, ten Doeschate 6-0-18-0, Grandia 2-0-21-0, Seelaar 6-0-37-1, de Leede 10-0-38-1, van Troost 6-0-27-0)
    The Netherlands 182-8 (50 overs) (Zuiderent 16, de Grooth 17, de Leede 13, van Bunge 9, ten Doeschate 40, van Troost 0, Kervezee 24, Stelling 25 no, Reekers 2, Smits 11no; Kirby 10-0-38-2, Lewis 10-1-33-1, Hardinges 9-1-27-1, Gidman 8-0-25-1, Ball 10-0-36-0, Taylor 3-0-10-1)

    Just hope that bad weather doesnt drain the play-off match between Nepal and Namibia with itself and there is enough time for both the teams to complete their 1st innings. If the match gets drained off, there should be a provision to replay the match in some other location.

    As for other teams, I believe Kweek is under-rating Holland. I have always rated Holland as of very high among non-test teams since they nearly beat India in the 2003 World cup. They have Kenya, Bermuda and Canada in their group and they should be able to beat 2 of these teams.

    I see more of Holland then any of you. and yes I underrate Holland, as I do see all county's know quite a few of Holland players irl, and played against another bunch of em.
    and Either im pretty good(which im not) or the level of Holland really isnt that hot.

    Whilst I wouldn't back Tarick's judgement on a lot of things, Dutch cricket is one that he's probably pretty accurate on. I think an Ireland-Scotland final is the most likely unless Kenya can bounce back from Bdesh pretty quickly.

    If I read the schedule right, there's no semi-final in there, so the top team from each group goes through to the final. So one of Kenya, Netherlands, Canada and Bermuda would make it.

    Day two, the first day of play.

    Nepal won toss and put Namibia in to bat

    Namibia 245 for 6 (104 ovs, Deon Kotze 90*, Gerrie Snyman 60, Jan-Berrie Burger 43; Aamir Akhtar 7-1-37-2, Maha**** Alam 2-50, Basanta Regmi 2-51)

    Both Akhtar and Regmi making debuts. I'm guessing that Namibia reached about 215 for 6 after 90 overs, which would give them 4 bonus points, though the rules may have been changed from last year (when you couldn't bat for more than 90 overs and thus couldn't get bonus points) - Nepal have 3 bonus points from bowling, but the weather forecast for Windhoek is similar to today (some showers but apparently not very serious). I'd think Namibia would bat to make 350-400 or so in the hope of making Nepal follow on, but I don't their bowling to do very much.

    One interesting thing: Namibia sent in Sarel Burger (specialist seamer) at three, perhaps suggesting that the wicket was pretty awful in the morning and they didn't want to waste their better players up top. Opener Dawid Botha (10) is a specialist bat, tho, so maybe it's just a scorecard error.

    Sarel Burger generally plays as an all rounder for Namibia, similar to Tony Suji i guess.
    The man, the mountain, the Mathews. The greatest all rounder since Keith Miller. (Y)
