ICC Granted T20i status to 18 Country's

mao: http://www.timesnownews.com/sports/cric ... ort/221427

Right now 10 country plus Afghanistan & Ireland Granted for Test status besides t20i status, but today ICC announced 6 more nations including--Scotland, Netherland,Hongkong,Oman,Nepal and UAE = total 18 country grabted to play international t20 (T20I) from January 1st,2019.

I wonder how Going south have to say.( ICC did granted for more women countries which I am not much interested but 18 country really big mess in next world t20i

SrT wants 40 teams in IPL or 25 in WC after 2050 or so,i think that is crazy.he said more teams more interesting tournaments than 8 or 12 teams only.

Who cares what SRT wants? He doesn't pay my pay tv bill.

I want to see high quality cricket matches involving many of the best players in the world.

Not carnival cricket. No offence.

The nation cricket should be recruiting is China. Its obvious to everyone, except the BCCI is not keen as their members are presumably scared of China's resources.

A third umpire call for a run out or stumping is a referral, not a review.

forget about SRT.
He is now a grumpy old man looking for sound bites.

I welcome this!
T20 is the ideal format to make new fans in far away corners of the world.

Glad that it’s T20 but not test cricket, if not, they would have stayed away from cricket FOREVER.

Don’t spoil them by giving test status BS ever. let them be.

If they play T20i in USA i would pay and watch.
