ICC Governance Changes; Associate and Affiliate Cricket Podcast
Russell Degnan

A wealth of cricket to cover in this episode. Andrew Nixon (@andrewnixon79) joins Russell Degnan (@idlesummers) to catch up on the last month of events starting with the East Asia Pacific (0:20) and Americas WCL qualifiers (5:40). The Women's World Cup qualifier was played without associate success, but Ireland did make the super six (8:00). Hong Kong's fascinating matchup with Netherlands is also covered (11:40) along with Irish, UAE and Afghan ODI matches (19:42). We discuss the results of the last ICC meeting in depth, covering the governance reforms (23:10), membership (28:10) tournament structures (36:00), and player eligibility (54:15) as well as the latest on USACA and CAN (59:40). There is also news of ACC sub-regional tournaments, associate players taking opportunities elsewhere, the Hong Kong Blitz (1:02:50) and previews of the upcoming I-Cup and WCL matches, and a potential tournament in the Americas (1:05:55).
