    Afro-Asian series

    Quick straw poll.

    The Afro-Asian (aka pointless games being given ODI status when they shouldn't have it) series - predict for it or not?

    Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.

    Forgot to say, as it's a public vote, I'll be ignoring those who don't enter the predictions league fairly regularly...

    Don't want to, but I think we should do everything with proper status, despite whether it's rightly so or not. So I voted yes but it wouldn't bother me too much if it wasn't done.

    The Afro-Asian series is a fair old waste of time that shouldn't have ODI status, but the same could be said of the matches involving asocciate ICC members and we predicted them so on a consistency basis I'd say yes (but i would not exactly be heartbroken if the vote was no)
    Ian Botham, Freddie Flintoff, Kevin Pietersen, Brian Laudrup, Gazza and Daniela Hantuchova....a fan of you all FOREVER!!!
    Can't wait to see Australia field a crap leg-spinner like Hollland or Hohns again.....
    Congratulations to Daniela Hantuchova on her 3rd career title....
    Bob Woolmer 1948-2007..farewell to the best coach England never had...

    If you're going to include minnows, you have to include this one.

    The color of immortality, nature and envy - you are truly a unique person. While clearly the color of nature, you also symbolize rebirth, fertility and hope in the world. On the other side of the spectrum, a natural aptitude to money with green coming to signify money and possibly even *********!

    I don't wanna come over all Bill Frindall (apologies for the mental image that paints, btw), but there's no way these things should have ODI status. International cricket should be played between cricketing nations, not collections thereof.

    That said I'll probably predict if we do go with them.

    "as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."
