    Icon5 Lokomotiv's Proposed Changes to Cricket

    Hi, I am new to this forum.
    I have a question about the World Cricket League.
    In this competition, every team meets twice. So I was thinking that this competition is done in the home & away format.
    But I was wrong. Ireland v. UAE games were both held in UAE. Could you tell me why this competition is not in the home & away format?

    I'd guess travel costs, given that they're all amateur sides.

    Every team plays each other side twice, but both games are back-to-back at the same venue.

    Icon5 Why so many Tests between Australia and England

    I cannot understand why Australia and England play so many Tests every year.
    In my opinion, Tests should be played by all countries who have Test status in the home & away format--maybe 18 Tests in 2 years?

    it's a historic and popular rivalry, but 10 tests back to back this year and another series in 2015 seems a bit much.

    because the only thing better than flogging the poms for 5 tests is flogging the poms for 10

    I reckon the ICC figured that as long as teams are touring one location they might as well cram in all the Intercontinental Cup, World Cricket League matches and be done with it. Given how the run associate programmes I suspect the decision to play 2 games and not another 1 or 3 is totally arbitrary.

    Well the answer to that is they don't play tests every year, there is a set format for the Ashes that has been followed for some time. Between the series in Eng and Aus is around 18 months and then 2 1/2 years between the series in Aus and Eng. So it's normally 2 series in a 4 year period.

    This year has been mucked up as the series in Aus which should have been in 2014/15 has been brought forward a year as Australia is hosting the World Cup that summer and the powers that be didn't want an Ashes and a World Cup in the same year.

    As the boards view the Ashes as a cash cow they elected to move it forward a year and play more rather than move it back and play less. Anyway after this over saturation the schedule will return to normal from 2015.

    Not financially viable mate. Firstly the only series left with 5 tests is the Ashes so no other teams would ever play anything like 18 tests in 2 years against each other.

    And secondly, the cold reality is that only the Ashes can generate the interest and bums on seats.......how much interest would surround a series between Bangladesh and West Indies for eg?? You seriously think that should be played as regularly as the Ashes??

    I think its so there may be a remote chance Australia may win one and then pretend they're a force in world cricket.
    Do I contradict myself?

    I have a feeling that the 18 Test suggestion was that the 10 Test nations play 1 Test at home and 1 Test away against the other 9 countries in a two year period, which frankly would be very annoying, however I wouldn't mind if they had a 2 year International T20 league in that format.
