    Didn't the ICC put a stop to it?
    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    Anyone want to join the Society?

    Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.

    I thought that no-one wanted to go back after the match-fixing storm broke.

    It certainly wasn't an instant consequence of match-fixing, given that things first started to emerge in 1997 and 1998, then were swept under the carpet, then re-emerged in 2000.

    And tournaments were being played in Sharjah until 2002\03, with the Cherry Blossom Cup.

    Certainly, "offshore" tournaments (not just those at Sharjah, those at Toronto other similar venues were no different) were suspected as being hotbeds of match-fixing. But they still happen these days - Abu Dhabi has just superseded Sharjah as the one in UAE. (That is, Sheikh Zayed Stadium, not Al Jazira Stadium.)

    Offshore tournaments have also been played in Singapore and Morocco, as well as Toronto.

    The icc tours program pretty much puts pay to all these tournaments.
    Id rather see a tournament like sharjah being played in one of the associate countries to try and register some intrest in the public there. A tournament with the big fish in kenya or holland would be ideal. Unfortunately the way the tours program is this just isnt gonna happen.

    It certainly doesn't, there's much disquiet at National Boards filling-in gaps in the FTP with said tournaments.

    UAE is every bit as much an I$C$C Associate Member as Holland.

    There is disquiet.. but how many of these sort of tournies have actually taken place recently? Just that one in malaysia springs to mind. Most are put to the sword straight after theyve been dreamed up

    Oh, right.

    I prefer Building The Perfect Beast myself.

    I don't really have a "type" of music.

    There's always something. Even if it's just the Afro-Asia Cup.
