Interesting suggestion I heard recently was that perhaps IPL or BBL teams take over or otherwise link up with T20 teams in lower-ranked competitions and use them a bit like minor league/feeder teams. Say the Rajasthan Royals sign a young player and send them off to their Everest League affiiliate for a season to get some experience, then they "graduate" up to their Euro T20 Slam affiliate and so on. But at the same time it gives a direct link to those associate nations players to the big money leagues.It would never happen, but would love to see an associate slot outside the international slots for the lineups.
Don't want to watch a dead rubber but you're happy to start threads and give updates on a 7-match T20 tri-series between Afghanistan, Zimbabwe and Bangladesh?Bought ticket for the final. Probably the same bay as 2015 (cheap seat ).
Held off on Australia vs New Zealand as it could be a dead rubber.
