    More Teams in World Cup Please

    Can we please have more Teams for the Cricket World Cup. I think we should have a World Cup every 2 years. In 2009 with 32 teams and in 2011 with 64 teams. This way, we would get many more countries and players involved which would only be good for the game.

    The Associates proved that they deserve to play in the World Cup and Ireland's success was a good indicator. People only watch when their National Side is playing in the World Cup so more teams should be encouraged.

    Two words:

    TIME CONSTRAINTS

    Like your 3 other "128 test nations" and your "show all domestic matches on TV " threads, you fail to take into account time.

    Dire post...again

    Yeah, lets just get Brazil and France to go ahead and play in the World Cup. We can get Zinadine Zidane (sp?) to open for France.

    Wiggum if you wanna see 32, 64 or 128 of anything go and watch some tennis.

    Over 0.2: Putland to Nevill, OUT, no run, full ball swings in late to crash into his pads. Nevill is almost falling over trying to get bat on it but can't. Huge shout for LBW and Umpire Martell eventually raises the finger! P.Nevill - lbw b:Putland 0 (1 ball, 1 minute).

    having more sounds like a great plan.. but the odi game is not soccer.. its to long and far to many varibles (weather wise) to have that many team..

    it should be 15 only.. with three groups of 5 the top 3 of each group make the super 9. bringing their points with them.. top 4 make 2 games of semi. then the final.

    64 teams?

    World Cup every two years?

    Top marks for optimism!

    He could be from the Outer Hebrides for all I know, but as far as international sport is concerned he's French and therefore not qualified to play in the extended Cricket World Cup as an opening batsman for Italy.
