    The thing is if they pull the games closer together, as you want, the players won't be able to play them all because of other commitments.
    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?

    From a tough love perspective that need for players available to the national team year round would force associates to develop professionalism into their systems which would be better for the game in the long run for cricket as a whole. This we are just amateurs thing is a bit of a crutch that is inhibiting real maturation of associate cricket.

    How would they develop professionalism though? Simply unsustainable financially.

    Unsustainable if they continue on the current status quo so to speak. A more 'televisable' Associate schedule could provide the extra revenue.

    But how does it become televisable? Who are you expecting to watch it realistically and how much will any company pay to show it? It'd only be peanuts.

    Domestic audiences for start. Curious india fans. Kenya's East Africa Premier League and Cup for example are getting quite a bit of interest from Supersport, so they might cover Kenya games and I want to believe Cricket Ireland can get Setanta to front something for its own games. It obviously won't be the billions that the BCCI commands but it would be an important starting point.

    Neth 21/0 (6.4 ov, LW Stokkers 6*, ES Szwarczynski 11*, MC Sorensen 0/7) | Live Scorecard | ESPN Cricinfo

    A 15-year old spinner called Daniel Doram has just taken 5 wickets on debut against Ireland.

    John Anderson was a South African who played one game for Natal about 10 years ago, since then he appears to have turned up from nowhere and hit a ton for Ireland. To be honest I'm more interested in the other opener, a 22-year old called Balbirnie, entirely because of his stereotypical name
    I'm always suspicious of shops that sell bait.

    That's an interesting story, wonder how well he bowled, or whether it was a bit of slogging. Got Kevin O'Brien again the second innings too.
