    A while ago the winners of the domestic competitions in Australia and England would play each other, but I think it got rained off most of the time, also the ammount of travelling, it's just not worthwhile. If you want to see teams from each country play each other then check out the WCCC forum! Online World Club Cricket!

    I like the idea of a World Domestic championship but how would they do it?

    A idea would be that it is played in November every two years and not have any one day internationals or tests for that Peroid therefore the best players in the world would play against each other?


    We could then have 16 teams from 9 counties. Bangladesh Excluded and then we could have a knock out format...............

    The West Indian domestic team that takes part would be murdered. Well, maybe not Jamaica....

I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    I think June in the West Indies would be a good time. That way, everyone could have a rest for a month.

    But the pitches aren't exactly up to standard, except maybe in Antigua.

    That means nothing. They'll all be under water anyway at the start of the hurricane season. It was my way of saying "it'll never happen".

    Can you imagine - yet another 'Champions Cup' type event squeezed into the calendar on an annual basis? I can't.

    Would be a brilliant idea, i would like to see that instead of yet another meaningless Sharjah Trophy

    In fact, if all the teams travelled to Sharjah or somewhere for the tournament, travel wouldnt be too bad....

    About 2 years ago it was tried in Australia at Perth.

    It was called the Champions Cup & featured the 4 OD champions from Australia (W.A), NZ (Central Districts), India (Mumbai) & South Africa (Kwazulu Natal)

    Thats really the closest cricket has come to having a international district or state competition.

    I agree....but then maybe we would have a lot of one sided contests. In the tourney held in australia featuring WA,KN,CD and Mum,Mumbai lost all their matches while WA romped home to victory in the final....Home conditions would count for a lot in such championships...( although one couldn't expect Mumbai to do any better in Australian conditions than the manner India performs there!)...I guess holding it in different conditions would throw up different results .
    What would be interesting is to list the teams that would do well in-
    A) Australian conditions.(read bouncy pitches)
    B) Seaming English or NZ conditions.
    C) Subcontinental pitches.

    My ten teams to do well are-NSW
    WA
    Kwazulu Natal
    Jamaica
    Barbados
    Surrey
    Mumbai
    Karnataka Central Districts
    Bangladesh(they should be counted as a first class team only)
    Pakistan does'nt seem to have a domestic structure ,so no team from there...

    Just a quick point OrangePitch - my eyes are not very good, so if you want me to read your posts, please stop changing the colours (or I must have smoked something I shouldn't).

    Who pays? The game in England's in financial crisis as it is at present (ok, so what's new?) - so if you are carting 8-16 teams from one side of the world to the other for 2 or 3 weeks, you have to be sure of an audience.

    My eyes are good and I too have a problem with the constant colour change.

    Re: Team for tourney.
    I don't think Barbados would stand a chance. They may have won the regional tourney a fair few times, but I really don't think they are as good as Jamaica.

    Is that an offer to cover it for Cricketweb?!

    Nope.

    Just a subtle way of saying the whole idea is nonsense in an already bursting calendar.

    June in the West Indies tends to be a little damp, so all concerned would get a good rest.

    I suppose we could have the winners of the domestic tournaments, if not then these would be some likely contenders


    England - Gloucestershire
    West Indies - Jamaica
    South Africa - Easterns
    India - Karnataka
    Pakistan - Not sure, although i suppose a Karachi team would be good
    Australia - NSW
    NZ - Canterbury
