You'd think of all people, Cameron would never miss a knob gag.
I could also strenuously argue that the "minnows growing the game" concept is one of the biggest cons ever, but I'll leave that for another day.

Yeah I agree and was thinking of starting a similar thread recently. I don't understand the fascination with growing the game and pumping millions onto places that we will never ever see a return from. What's wrong with it staying how it is? I'm happy with it. Honestly, I don't want to see the game in America or China or any other of those countries. Probably the worst thing about the ICC is their obsession with minnows and developing the game in other countries. And whilst I fully support the growth of cricket in lets say, Holland, its the aggressive nature in which the ICC go to, to make it happen, especially in markets like the US, China and Canada.
And they shouldn't be in the World Cup. And the argument "How will they improve?". Well, who cares really. Not our problem.
Now that it's over, I still mistakingly check the web for updates or tune into the SopCast channel from where I used to watch it..........I guess it's length had a positive and lasting impact on many like me.....ULTIMATE addiction to cricker !?!?!

Saying things like that is like saying Australia and the other minnows etc devalues the fifa world cup. It doesn't.

Hey, I follow and plan to follow the minnow sides just as much as anyone here throughout the years. One of my favourite players represents a minnow country. But they shouldn't be playing in the World Cup and the ICC shouldn't be pissing money into the wind to try and hopelessly build them up, something that wont ever happen. And if cricket ever becomes big in America (which it wont), that's when I give up the sport for good.
Right, total circles here. You haven't really brought up any new points besides the CT one, which imo should be scrapped and is abit of a joke in itself.
