Africa Div 2, women’s qualifier and ICC meeting; Associate and Affiliate Cricket Podcast

Russell Degnan

 

Africa played host to two tournaments this month, with the men’s division two (8:01) and the women’s T20 and/or World Cup qualifier (10:49) being played. Andrew Nixon (@andrewnixon79) joins Russell Degnan (@idlesummers) to discuss them. Namibia played both Afghanistan (0:30), in the I-Cup, and Nepal (3:40) in the WCLC. In news, we mark the passing of the inspirational Tony Munro, editor of Beyond the Test World (16:29) before moving on to development matters. Amongst several issues covered are: women’s development, particularly in Afghanistan (13:40); match-fixing at associate level (18:20); Nepal’s suspension by the ICC (21:00); the complexities of having an independent chairman (24:10); ongoing discussions about context and structure (25:30); the ODI fund for Ireland and Afghanistan (28:50); and the Hong Kong blitz and their new sources of funding (39:35). And as usual there is bits of news from Italy, Germany, UAE, Kenya, Afghanistan, the Americas and Asia.
