    I started a thread yesterday about Dave Mohammad and pledged a fiver to Children In Need for every reply before the thread was locked. I knew the lack of humour on here meant it wouldn't cost me much, but we've had such a laugh at those fixtures that we've passed the hat around and raised another £70.

    Game could develop an alternate tour like Rugby World 7s - players just below top rung concentrate on this form of game and play in non-traditional rugby venues such as Shanghai in carnival atmosphere
    well they already play 1 20/20 per home tour and thats why 20/20 is going be played the least with up to 10 or less per year when 15 tests and 30 odis

    Of course my thread wasn't as funny as the nonsense in this thread, but at least it was attempting to raise money for charity.

    20/20 has a large role to play in the development of the game especially in raising the profile in smaller cricketing nations.

    The proposal mentioned originally is based on a good premise but is pretty much unworkable logistically and unatractive from a competition standpoint.

    Maybe the way to get minnows involved and playing high profile cricket is to have full regional qualifying for the 20/20 WC. Only their games against Test nations would be uncompetetive but it would be good for their profile and they would then play hard games against similar standard nations.

    example Euro Zone 20/20 WC Qualifying
    Top 2 Qualify
    England
    Scotland
    Ireland
    Netherlands
    Denmark
    etc

    Would be a fun comp and would have England visit regional neighbours that would be good for them financially and in cricketing terms.

    so you dont think netherlands vs australia is mismatch, thats going to happen in the up coming world cup? or what about Switzerland vs Tago,Argentina vs Serbia and Montenegro, England vs Trinidad and Tobago in fifa ofcorse it is but you still have to give the underdogs a chance to perticipate
