Yes its is very disappointing that a final is not going to be played in Perth

A lot of people are saying its Crickets Australia's fault and typical east coast bias...but it could be something else

A certain Big nation not wanting to play on one of the fastest decks in the world ????...they whinged in the test series and got there way with no game at Brissie....perhaps they are whingeing again?

Nice try, but no they didn’t. Adelaide and Perth both beat Brisbane with their bids to host India.

Do some f***ing research instead of buying into the myth.

Which is beyond stupid. Hopefully CA were slapped repeatedly after that dumb decision. It didn’t cost us but why we start in Adelaide is beyond me.

Australia hadn’t lost there since 2003 from memory - not as long as the undefeated streak at Brisbane obviously but still pretty impressive, and given how poor Australia were with the bat in the other 4 tests I don’t think it’s a fait accomplis that they would have won in Brisbane either.

Exactly not as long as Brisbane. Jeez give your home side the best chance...do England start the Ashes at Lords? Nope. As I said it probably didn’t cost us but it didn’t help. We should have played Brisbane then Perth. Get the two bounciest pitches first up.

Below is the qualifying process for those interested. Provided by the sensational Bertus De Jong on twitter.

I'd really like to see the USA qualify as unlikely as that is.

I'd say you can almost guarantee most of the remaining Qualifier spots will be won by the top names listed (Nepal, UAE, USA, Canada, Kenya, Namibia). Europe's probably the biggest ? - Jersey are a good, promising young team, but Denmark probably has better depth. Germany has risen very quickly, including having a former Afghan national player in their ranks.

In all honesty, I think Ireland's chances of getting through the qualifier are questionable. The shorter the format gets, the worse they are at it. Could be some other upsets as well.

You'd think PNG win that EAP group fairly comfortably too. Depending on which board implodes the most between now and the qualifiers I could see Uganda beating Kenya in the African group. Especially if Irfan Afridi is allowed to bowl.
