    How about this for a result...

    UAE WON BY 367 RUNS
    Brunei: 92 all out in 40.1 overs
    UAE: 459 for 3 off 50 overs
    (A. Ali 213*, M. Iqbal 114, S. Ali 66)
    Man of the Match: Arshad Ali (UAE)

    A few questions, Is that the highest ever winning margain in a ODI? Could that be the new official record for highest runs ammased, or will they not botther with it only being UAE? and when was the last time anyone made a double century in ODIs?

    No to all questions, on the basis that it is not an ODI, and I'm 99% certain it won't even be List A.

    With neither UAE and Brunei having ODI status, it's not official, so statisticians needn't worry. I'm not even sure Ali Brown's 268* List A record was threatened.

    UAE ought to win it, though. Best batting in the competition by some distance (as seen above). I'll guess Afghanistan second, while Oman can't back up their surprise second place from last year and will get knocked out by Nepal in the quarter-finals.

    Unfortunately, Kaniska Chaugain who Captained U 19 WC and is a very seasoned batsmen has left for USA for higher studies and has no plans for playing for Nepal in near future. Indeed a huge loss for Nepal.

    Comfortable win for Nepal against Bhutan by 281 runs. Captain Binod Das with a 5 wkt haul is the man of the match.
    Wheather played spoilsport for Malaysia (one of the possible contenderfor the title??) who had to share points with Brunei

    More minnows: Asian Cricket Council Trophy

    Perhaps the most one-sided international match ever played? UAE beat Brunei by the little matter of 367 runs. And they still weren't good enough to make the World Cup.

    So what does that make teams like Brunei? Plankton?

    How amusing, I think my club could give Brunei a good game going by that scorecard.

    Does this count as an ODI? Several individual and team records broken if so.

    If it's any decent club it would give Brunei a good going over, never mind a good game.

    And no, not an ODI - needs two ODI-class teams or to be in a WC/CT.

    There's another thread this could be merged with hanging around somewhere (mods?).

    The group stages, with their farcical mismatches (Brunei, Bhutan, Myanmar and Iran should probably find something else), are now finally concluded, and we come to the juicy stuff. The tournament is now a direct knock-out, but last year's runners-up and World League Division II member Oman has been knocked out at the group stage, after being drawn into a tough group with Singapore, Bahrain and the Maldives.

    UAE are looking strong, with seamer Shadeep Silva demolishing Malaysia when Ali Asad had a rare off day (8 wicketless overs for 23), and with Saqib Ali providing good specialist batting (132* and 52* on the trot).

    Singapore went through from group B in style after bowling Oman out for 127, though admittedly with nine catches, four of them behind, in "hazy sunshine". Ruwan and Arora have batted well, however, putting on stands of 103 v Singapore and 170 in a comprehensive win over Bahrain. They're evidently accustomed to the conditions.

    Nepal have won all four matches, but have benefited from an easy group, and only made 211 in sunshine at the Kilat Club against fellow quarter-finalists Hong Kong. They proceeded on net run rate after a suitably dramatic last over against Kuwait; with three to win off five balls, Najeeb Amar was run out, before Amjid Mahmood hit a single. Two to win off three. But the next two balls were both caught, and suddenly Hong Kong needed two to win off one ball (but presumably knowing their net run rate was better than Kuwait's, so a tie would be enough). Seamer Afzaal Haider, who had already three wickets, hit the required single to give Hong Kong the win.

    In Group D, no team has provided suitable challenge for Afghanistan: after a shabby start against Qatar, Rais Ahmadzai steadied the innings with a measured 70 as they posted 239 for seven, and Nasser Khan demolished Qatar's top order. He struck again against Thailand, who eked out 117 for nine, then conceded 66 in 9.1 (of 16) overs.

    The interesting thing about Oman's knock-out is that there's only one spot in the World Cricket League available from Asia (this may be expanded, as there are rumours knocking about that the League is going to be expanded to five divisions come 2009), and this was to be awarded to the best team excluding UAE and Oman, who already had qualified for the World League. So conceivably, this could be a team knocked out in the semi-finals, but now all teams know they have to reach the final to make it.

    The quarter-finals, tomorrow, are as follows:

    U.A.E. vs Qatar:

    No evidence suggests anything but a heavy UAE win here. Qatar relied on their top order against Thailand, and they're going to struggle against classy UAE bowling. Meanwhile, Thailand scored 229 on them, suggesting their bowling is shabby too.

    Nepal v Bahrain:

    With big pressure on Nepal, this might just be the match where they crumble. However, Bahrain aren't going to find the going with the bat as easy as they did against Oman, where they piled on 283 and could rely on their opponents to crumble (sixth bowler Qamar Saeed and seventh bowler Malik Mohammed shared five of ten wickets, and a sixth was a run out), and I think, although they have a good team spirit (shown by winning the Middle East Cup in April), they will be too light here.

    Afghanistan v Malaysia:

    Hosts Malaysia may be better than they showed against UAE, where they were bowled out for 143 with allrounder Suresh Navaratnam gone for a duck. He made a hundred against Saudi Arabia, where they piled on 300. However, they shouldn't be strong enough against a Afghanistan team who seem to beat everything in front of them this year.

    Singapore v Hong Kong:

    Easy win for Singapore - if Ruwan and Arora can get another partnership going, at least.

    The semi-finals are then UAE v Nepal and Afghanistan v Singapore - an unlucky lot for Nepal, you'll have to say.

    The World Cricket League is essentially a Football League-style structure for one-day cricket, similar to what's in place for ice hockey.

    The 12 teams that participated in the 2005 ICC Trophy are all given places, along with Kenya. The six ODI nations (that's Bermuda, Canada, Ireland, Kenya, Netherlands, Scotland for the forgetful) will play in Division One, which is to be held in Kenya between 20 and 28 January. That's a round robin tournament, so there will be 15 ODIs + a final.

    Division Two contains the 6th to 9th placed teams in the last ICC Trophy (that's Denmark, Oman, Namibia and UAE for those with poor memories), plus two promoted teams from Division Three.

    Division Three contains the remaining three teams from the ICC Trophy (Papua New Guinea, Uganda and USA), Italy (handed the spot by virtue of 2004 performances), Fiji (won a tournament in the Pacific), Cayman Islands or Argentina (due to be decided in the Americas Championship, which started today), the ACC Trophy finalist (or winner, if UAE gets beaten), and the winner of the African qualifier tournament (Botswana, Mozambique, Nigeria, Tanzania, Zambia) which is held from Wednesday to Sunday.

    These tournaments are supposed to be held every second year, with Divisions one and two merged into a "World Cup Qualifier" every fourth year starting from 2009 (essentially a continuation of the old ICC Trophy)
