    The more countries, the better IMO. Unfortunately the ICC won’t agree with my sentiment.

    Back in the 1900s they were nearly of test match standard but couldn't join the ICC as it was the Imperial Cricket Conference.

    If they really tried. I bet the yanks could have a topper team.

    Would love them and the Chinese proper get into cricket.

    I don't think place of birth is a massive factor, only four of their 11 were born in the USA.

  10. I believe the USA v Canada was the oldest international fixture in any sport. The civil war killed off the game in the States in favour of baseball.

    I thought they were. There was an article in Wisden about them a few years ago.

    Don't understand why there can only be x amount of sides with ODI status.

    FIFA are corrupt as fuck but at least everyone gets to play against other international sides.

    There’s no other sport that tries to restrict growth

    Fifa done a lot of corrupt things but done a brilliant job of expanding the game

    Play warm-up tour games against the nearest Associate team to where you are touring and do the same with A sides. e.g. England in Australia would have a couple of games v PNG, in South Africa v Namibia etc. Those games would mean a lot to the opposition and help grow the game worldwide.
