African and Asian WCLQ; Associate and Affiliate Cricket Podcast
Russell Degnan

The regional World Cricket League qualifiers continue with tournaments in several continents. Andrew Nixon (@andrewnixon79) joins Russell Degnan (@idlesummers) to talk about that and the recent ICC meeting. The African (0:20) and Asian (4:00) qualifiers turned up some surprises, good finishes and horrid mismatches, while the EAP women's T20 qualifier (10:50) was a tournament of two halves. There were also matches against England for Ireland's men's and women's teams (12:15). The ICC meeting is covered in depth with discussion of the governance changes and potential impact on affiliates (16:40), the ongoing discussion of playing structure (21:40), investment in China (24:15) and the decision to recommend expulsion of USACA (26:00). There was also news about the Asian and Commonwealth Games (31:40), and changes abound in Hong Kong (36:05). Finally we preview the World Cricket League Division 3 to be played in Uganda (38:10).
