Just saw yesterday Afghanistan get beaten by UAE in qualifiers. Every ICC event, we get these teams stuffed with ringers from India, Pakistan, Australia and SA. And once in a while they cause an upset and we go gaga how an underdog overcame the odds? really? many of ringers of have first class cricket experience from their native countries, some even have played for Test nations (Dirk Nannes anyone?). And in the case of UAE and Oman, the players aren't even citizens of these countries. ICC should place some strict rules for participation, which only allows teams with citizens by birth/naturalization. Or else we will never see teams like Fiji, Nepal, Papau New Guniea, Namibia develop further from U19.
