World Cup Review; Associate and Affiliate Cricket Podcast
Russell Degnan

The world cup group stages ended with something of a whimper for the associates, with Ireland missing out on the knockouts and some heavy losses. Cricket Ireland media manager Barry Chambers (irishcricket1) (0:29) and Scottish head coach Grant Bradburn (Beagleboy172) (43:34) join Andrew Nixon (@andrewnixon79) to discuss their respective team's performance; while The National (UAE) cricket journalist Paul Radley (PaulRadley) discusses the UAE with Russell Degnan (@idlesummers) (16:41). Andrew and Russell add their own comments after the interviews, looking at Afghanistan (39:27) and the overall associate performances (1:06:31). In the Americas, the Central America Championships are being played in Panama, and an unofficial combined US-Canadian womens' team travelled to Argentina to take on the Flamingos (1:16:44). There is a brief preview of the Africa Division One T20 qualifiers from South Africa (1:20:19), and some news on ICC helping fund relief efforts in Vanuatu.
