    I'm glad you keep pushing these threads laksh.

    Anyway, I support the Dutch (because of ten Doeschate, Peter Borren and Darren Reekers) but also like to see the Namibians go well. Memories of the Burgers in the South Africa world cup.

    Ireland player T20 World ratings:

    William Porterfield (capt): Captain couldn't buy a run in the first week but flourished in London. Fine leadership. 7/10

    Andre Botha: Scored rapidly and produced boundaries on demand in short stints at the crease. 6/10

    Jeremy Bray: Oh dear. Two runs off 17 balls in the group stage saw the veteran opener swiftly decommissioned. 4/10

    Peter Connell: Another whose contribution was negligible, but one over is a paltry basis for analysis. 5/10

    Alex Cusack: Fully justified full-time status with eight wickets including 4-18 against Sri Lanka, plus a strike rate of 156. 8/10

    Trent Johnston: When Ireland were good, it was because he was very good. Two sublime spells and two rotten ones. 7/10

    Kyle McCallan: How his off-spin never led to a professional career continues to baffle. Eight wickets at seven-an-over. 8/10

    John Mooney: Dependable in the field and inventive with the bat, christened player of the tournament by Phil Simmons. 7/10

    Kevin O'Brien: Cool as a cucumber to see Ireland through to the Super Eights on day one. Rest is best forgotten. 7/10

    Niall O'Brien: Outstanding behind stumps and his audacious shots felled Bangladesh. Would have made many more runs with a strong ankle. 8/10

    Boyd Rankin: After losing his place, became Ireland's meanest bowler and star of the Super Eights with unerring pace work. 8/10

    Paul Stirling: Finally unleashed yesterday, drove first ball for four on the way to 18 off 17. Get fit and he could flourish in this format. 6/10

    Regan West: Workmanlike in the field and self-destructive with the bat but a useful foil for spin twin McCallan. 6/10

    Andrew White: Put all of his experience - and reverse sweeps - to good effect against India and Sri Lanka. 7/10

    Gary Wilson: Excellent in the field and solid with the bat, he just didn't score quickly enough to padlock his place. 6/10

    The individual particiapanst in all those tournaments have to start pushing to create an audience for these tournaments in order that the ICC can care enough to push them. Govt support etc is key here.

    the chanpions trophy is probably dead in the water, and the super series has probably long since been scrapped, but the Afor-Asia cup could still prove useful (if the whole 'it raises money for the partisipants' means more than lining the pockets of handful of BCCi people)

    Unless Afro-Asia Cup Played this Way its worthless -

    Afro-Asia Cup:


    Group A:
    South Africa (1)
    Srilanka (7)
    Bangladesh (9)
    Afghanistan (15)

    Group B:
    India (3)
    Pakistan (5)
    Zimbabwe (10)
    Kenya (14)

    Top 2 from Each Group to play Semis & Finals.

    i replied to this in the other thread.

    Afro-asian cup is far from worhtless as without it the ACA would not be able to fund a lot of development work with the african associates and affiliates

    Then it should be worked this way:

    Afro-Asia Cup:
    Group A:
    South Africa (1)
    Srilanka (7)
    Bangladesh (9)
    Afghanistan (15)
    +1 Qualifier From ACC Trophy (If Req)

    Group B:
    India (3)
    Pakistan (5)
    Zimbabwe (10)
    Kenya (14)
    +1 Qualifier From ACA Trophy (If Req)

    Top 2 from Each Group to play Semis & Finals.

    This way even Asia Cup can be scrapped & by making it Afro-Asia Cup ever 2 years, it creates more interest, awareness, Competition & sponsorship for both the regions? Wat say?

    If it is valuable then they need to find a way to do it that isnt such a mess. Currently it has no redeamable features apart from its ability to fill TV space.
