Hong Kong's Ahmed brothers have been handed life bans for match-fixing.

Meanwhile, one of Scotland's best cricket grounds, Goldenacre, is under threat after George Heriot's (the school that owns the ground) proposed ripping it up to be replaced by hockey astro-turf pitches - and is blocking people who tweet at them disagreeing with the proposal, including a couple of Scottish players.

Looking at the results of the Romania Cup which saw Austria, the Czech Republic, Luxembourg, Romania and Turkey all make their T20I debuts. It's safe to say that Turkey are an absolute mile off the pace.

Turkey 28 (11.3 ov) - Luxembourg 2/29 (3.1 ov)
Romania 6/226 (20 ov) - Turkey 53 (13 ov)
Czech Republic 4/278 (20 ov) - Turkey 21 (8.3 ov)
Turkey 32 (8.5 ov) - Austria 0/33 (2.4 ov)

I do wonder how bad one team must be if the Czechs can score 278 off 20 overs. Then score only 21 themselves

I think they had last minute issues with visas, so had to cobble together a team

The first CWC Challenge League Group A match is underway in Malaysia between the Canada, Denmark, Qatar, Singapore, Vanuatu and the hosts. Canada are looking pretty comfortable right now, having just missed out on CWC League Two to PNG (who have so far lost 5 from 5 in that league).

In other news, Hong Kong is falling apart, with Anshuman Rath declaring he intends to play for India, and Babar Hayat, Ehsan Nawaz and Tanveer Ahmed have declared themselves unavailable for selection after the dropping of Tanwir Afzal.

Lovely to repeat history but I am at pains to wonder what this is in aid of? Just to record the past of those men who went before, or else
to get the younger generation remembering the little bits of history...

sometimes there needs to be an end and a beginning. forgive me if I am totally out of context or else just wanting to pray for a good future..

If you're going to dribble obscure bulls**t that has no relevance to the thread, then that would indicate you would be on some kind of substance am I right?

A T20I tri-series involving Singapore, Nepal and Zimbabwe gets underway in September 27. Be interesting to see how Singapore go against two relatively established cricket nations, comparatively speaking.
