USA is coming soon for

div 2 qualifiers also

Ugh. There really needs to be some kind of cap on expat players. Doesn't grow the sport in those countries at all if the ones representing the national team are Indians and Pakistanis.

Usa is country of immigrants. If you want to see all goras in  the country’s team, then one has to know usa’s history.

 

Regarding expats, all the expats now are married and have kids and their kids are playing in under 12 tournaments etc and they will be future Americans who don’t have any association with Indiia, Australia, Pakistan, windies etc other than that their parents used to live in india once.

 

So they are very much American who have probably never been to India.

 

This age group will feature 5 years from now in under 19 world cups etc. so when you see them you will realize it.

They could be born and brought up in the US and it still would do zilch for the sport in the country if the only ones playing it are those of Indian/Pakistani heritage. Until they get the majority white/black/Hispanic population playing, there won't be any interest in the sport.

 

ICC should have a rule that would prevent players with one or both parents that are born in a Test-playing nation from representing associate nations. Maybe that would force those cricket boards to actually go out of their way to try and get the word out about the sport and get local people playing cricket and not rest on the laurels of the performances of South Asian origin players and the game would have any chance of actually spreading there.

Playing for the national team is.

 

They shouldn't represent the country in age group cricket either. Domestic cricket is fine.

Good luck on that one !!, Some guy in India thinks that no 12 year old born in the Associate country can play for his country of birth !!

You are saying with all seriousness that a 25,yr old in my associate team , born in the country , played every age group would not be allowed to play for the country of his birth because his mother emigrated from India 43yrs ago  and he is the only 2nd generation Asian in the team ???? Wow just wow !!! 

Where to you get  the idea that all players who play for an Associate country that they are full time cricket professionals ?

Like I said, play it as a hobby. But you can't represent the country. The sport doesn't need any more Indian/Pakistani-origin players than there already are. That doesn't help spread the game in associate countries. Most of the Indian/Pakistani origin people in those countries wouldn't support that country's national team in cricket anyway.

 

It has nothing to do with being full-time cricket professionals. Those people can live without representing that country's national team. Not like they would be any good at it anyway, or making a lot of money playing it, so it's not a hill to die on.

 

They can play domestic cricket, but they shouldn't have the right to represent the national team at any level. It helps no one and nothing.

So according to you the country of your birth has no relevance , some can represent others can't :hysterical: is this just for cricketers of Indian / Pakistani extraction .?

Sorry to tell you but some of us live in a first world country that has laws of discrimination.

What first hand knowledge do you have that supports your statement Indian/ Pakistani origan wouldn't support " that" country?

Not good at it? They must be okay to represent their Associate country because India went running shitless to keep them out of the WC incase they got beat again by an associate .

" Shouldn't have the right " are you for real ??? to suggest that people born and having lived there for 25 years can not represent their country . 

Mind boggling !!!!!!

ICC is well within its rights to create its own laws on who gets to represent the national team. The same way FIFA mandates that a player must have the passport of that country to represent the national side. Are you going to say it's discriminatory to not let a player play for the national side just because of his passport even though he was born in that country? No first world country has made an issue out of it. 

 

ICC is the governing body of cricket. There's no court of law in any country that would overturn ICC's decision to not let players with one or both parents from Test playing nations to represent associate nations, if such a rule was put into place. With Trump as President, I'm sure there are far more discriminatory laws in US itself.

I've lived 10 years of my life in the UAE. I didn't find one Indian/Pakistani there who supported the UAE national team, even though it was made up entirely of South Asians.

 

Most South Asians living in associate nation countries aren't going to support that nation's team because they have a much better one to support in South Asia.

When did any associate team made of expats ever beat India in the World Cup?

Damn right they shouldn't.

 

I'm all for trying to accelerate growth of associate teams with genuine local players even if they're bad, like China, Japan, Korea etc. It makes zero sense to let countries like UAE, Oman, Hong Kong, USA, Canada etc. get ahead with their achievements inflated by expat players. An entire team of South Asian origin players isn't going to help promote cricket in associate nations even if they were born in that country.

nepal 113 all out (33 overs) 

 

UAE lost 7 wicket for 75 but 8th wicket gave them 3 wicket win as Sandeep L ( ipl 2019)
shines in his 55 ball spells with 2 wickets.

UAE lead 3 match ODI 1/0

previews coming up

 

https://m.cricbuzz.com/cricket-commentary/20195/rsa-vs-sl-1st-test-sri-lanka-tour-of-south-africa-20SA vs SL, Durban

Starts at 01:30 PM IST (08:00 GMT), Feb 1

mmentar

Preview:

It has been a tough few months for Sri Lankan cricket. Having been ambushed 3-0 at home by England, they started their southern hemisphere sojourn on a promising note, drawing their first Test in Wellington against New Zealand. Reality has since hit them hard - with three successive losses coming in Christchurch, Brisbane and Canberra. As they get ready for what could be the toughest of all the three overseas trips, the optimism has been replaced by an urge to survive against all odds.

As Durban gets ready to host its one-off Test for the summer, the mood in either camp couldn't have been more contrasting. The hosts are in an upbeat mood, having just blanked Pakistan by a 3-0 margin. While batting continues to remain a worry, it has more than been balanced by their pace battery. The four-pronged pace attack worked like a charm against the sub-continental giants and it wouldn't be a surprise if Faf du Plessis decides to unleash the same quartet against the vulnerable Sri Lanka batting line-up.

The two-match Test series also offers an ideal opportunity for the host batsmen to make up for lost time. Having watched their Australian counterparts feast on the feeble Sri Lankan attack, Faf du Plessis and his batting unit will consider the series as an opportunity to pad their stats, especially with the visitors having trouble in consistently fielding a fit bowling attack.

While the hosts look primed for yet another series win, Sri Lanka come into the game with a lot of questions that needs quick answers. A poor Australian series with the bat led to the axing of skipper, Dinesh Chandimal, and it has meant that the captaincy roller-coaster is now in the hands of opening batsman, Dimuth Karunaratne. With Angelo Mathews still unavailable, the middle-order looks rather inexperienced and the selectors fell back to 33-year old Milinda Siriwardana, who played the last of his five Tests in 2016.

Injuries and poor form has meant that the bowling attack looks relatively new, although Suranga Lakmal returns after sitting out of the Canberra Test with a stiff back. Giving him company would be two of Vishwa Fernando, Kasun Rajitha and Chamika Karunaratne - who among them have only eight Test caps. Lakshan Sandakan, who didn't feature in either New Zealand or Australia, suddenly finds himself as the lead spinner. If there is any silver lining for the visitors, it's the fact that they go into the series as the firm underdogs and that's a position which can at times bring the best out of a team.

When: Wednesday, February 13 at 10:00 am local, 1:30 pm IST

Where: Kingsmead, Durban

What to expect: A few showers are expected during the course of the Test, but it shouldn't cause any loss of play. Durban is one venue where the hosts have lost more Tests than they have won, and their last win at this venue came against India in 2013. South Africa haven't beaten Sri Lanka at this venue either, having drawn once and lost once, in the two Tests that they have played.

Team News:

South Africa

Wiaan Mulder was added to the 13-man South Africa squad, but the hosts could go in with the same combination that did the job against Pakistan. It will mean Keshav Maharaj might have to wait for his opportunity while one of Zubayr Hamza or Theunis de Bruyn will have to sit out - to make way for captain du Plessis who returns after serving his one-Test ban due to slow overrate

Probable XI: Dean Elgar, Aiden Markram, Hashim Amla, Faf du Plessis (c), Theunis de Bruyn, Temba Bavuma, Quinton de Kock (wk), Vernon Philander, Kagiso Rabada, Dale Steyn, Duanne Olivier.

Sri Lanka

Having made a host of changes to their squad, it's difficult to predict the Sri Lankan playing XI. With Kingsmead generally turning out to be a slow track which can take turn as the match progresses, will they be tempted to play two spinners? In the absence of Dinesh Chandimal, Dhananjaya de Silva might be shuffled back to three with one of Angelo Perera or Milinda Siriwardana to slot into the middle-order

Probable XI: Dimuth Karunaratne (c), Lahiru Thirimanne, Dhananjaya de Silva, Kusal Mendis, Kusal Perera, Milinda Siriwardana, Niroshan Dickwella (wk), Suranga Lakmal, Lakshan Sandakan, Kasun Rajitha, Vishwa Fernando.

What they said

"Whichever team comes here we're pretty much going to try and dominate them. Especially Sri Lanka, who were really dominant against us in Sri Lanka. Now they are in our conditions and hopefully we can put in a dominant display in the two Tests" - Keshav Maharaj believes it's time to settle scores after the heavy losses last year.

Teams:

Sri Lanka (From): Dimuth Karunaratne(c), Lahiru Thirimanne, Kusal Mendis, Kusal Perera, Dhananjaya de Silva, Niroshan Dickwella(w), Kaushal Silva, Chamika Karunaratne, Kasun Rajitha, Suranga Lakmal, Lakshan Sandakan, Oshada Fernando, Milinda Siriwardana, Vishwa Fernando, Angelo Perera, Mohamed Shiraz, Lasith Embuldeniya

South Africa (From): Dean Elgar, Aiden Markram, Hashim Amla, Faf du Plessis(c), Temba Bavuma, Quinton de Kock(w), Theunis de Bruyn, Vernon Philander, Keshav Maharaj, Kagiso Rabada, Dale Steyn, Zubayr Hamza, Wiaan Mulder, Duanne Olivier
