    2021 ICC Men's T20 World Cup - In UAE/Oman - 17 Oct to 14 Nov (tonight's games PNG v SCO, OMA v BAN)

    Economy rates from the UAE matches in the World Cup so far: Spin: 6.64 Pace: 5.23 Small sample size but the point is the pitches really aren't as spin friendly for T20 matches as you think they are. It's not a test match where they make them dustbowls.

    I wrote actual World Cup to bring the thread back to the actual World Cup happening right now as the last page was about a warm-up game. Not to suggest Namibia were finished at the World Cup.

    Namibia were disappointing in the actual World Cup. Went to pieces on the big (though not as big as warm-up games) stage.

    Narine will get done for chucking at any ICC events. He was deadset pegging the thing in the IPL.

    I wouldn't say there is a class between them. The Dutch beat them in an ODI series 3 months ago. Frankly bizarre team selection and a poor day has cost the Dutch.

    You'd hope he's been following domestic cricket very closely despite working in hockey for the past 3 years. Was CEO of Cricket Victoria when their office was about 2 buildings down from Cricket Aus. His job in hockey was in the building next to Cricket Aus HQ. Definitely wouldn't be a jobs for...

    You'll get to see it as Netherlands have 3 match ODI series against NZ, SA and England to come as part of the Super League. In saying that Little is hitting 140 in this match.

    Actual matches are on 503 for those on Fox. They're showing a warm up match on Fox Cricket ffs.

    SA have said they're aiming to have the border with NSW open before Christmas so maybe not.

    It might be a logistical nightmare and be inconvenient as tickets have already been sold and it would also effect things like the BBL scheduling but starting the Ashes in Sydney might be a good option. The England players and family won't have to quarantine in Sydney on arrival.

    The 2022 World Cup in Aus is going to have the same format as this one but from 2024 it will be 20 teams split into 4 groups of 5. The ODI World Cup from 2027 will be 14 teams in the main draw.

    Dominate display from Oman. Jatinder and Bilal Khan are absolute quality cricketers. They've come on leaps and bounds since the qualifiers whereas PNG have gone backwards probably due a fair amount to the lack of cricket they've been able to play due to the pandemic.

    World Cup should be a 21 game tri-series between India, England and Australia imo.

    The reason I was keen to see this was I suspected Kashyap Prajapati would be picked (which he has) despite not being named in their 15 man squad for the tournament and there's been no update from the ICC that he had been added to the squad. Amateur organisation.

    And when they fail we just pick someone else new to see what they've got until we're left with Conor McInerney and Charlie Wakim opening for Australia.
