    A format like the 92WC would be ideal for me.

    - 2 pools of 7, quarters, semis, final = 49 games (most of them formalities)
    - 1 pool of 10, no quarters, semis, finals = 48 games (hardly any formalities)

    Still, too long but better than the current format.


    Oh, and they'll have to wear 92WC throwback style uniforms.

    Fair enough. But a 12 team tourny would still be better imo.

    3 groups of 4

    Top 2 from each group go through to the super 6

    Semis & final.

    This is my biggest complaint. Why don't all teams wear kits with the common theme but in different colours? Looked so good in '92 and '96.

    FIFA style

    Europe
    Eng, Scot, Ire, Hol. 3 spots.

    Asia
    Ind, Pak, SL, Afg, Ban. 4 spots.

    Americas
    USA, Can, WI. 1 spot.

    SA/Pacific
    Aust, NZ, SA, Zim, Ken 4 spots.

    12 teams in total.

    Host nation does not need to qualify. ( no more combined hosting.)

    a home and away comp must be completed by teams within in the 4 year period between cups.

    Anyway, fwiw, I'm not saying there shouldn't be any of the associates. Simply that having them make up almost half of the competing nations is way too many. A tournament involving 12 nations would probably be just about right imo.
    In soccer, a weaker team can play very defensively for the majority of the game, hoping to score off the occasional break downfield. In ODI cricket, if a weaker team tries to bat defensively, they won't score runs, so will definitely lose the game.

    Cricket with its high scoring magnifies the difference between the two teams, whereas soccer with its low scoring makes scores look more respectable.
