End of Year Review; Associate and Affiliate Cricket Podcast
Russell Degnan

For the now traditional end of year review, Andrew Nixon (@andrewnixon79) and Russell Degnan (@idlesummers) are joined by journalist Tim Wigmore (@timwig_cricket). We begin with various themes from the year, including the lack of associate cricket, particularly at lower levels (5:40); the gradual rise in streaming and the state of communications (10:40); and the continual leak of players away from associate cricket (15:50). We cover some "bests" of the year, including male player(s) (21:40), young male player(s) (23:45), female (25:10), team(s) (26:40) and moments (38:40). And we look forward with some optimism to next year (43:00) both for the potential changes in ICC structures, the tournaments that will conclude or be played and the ICC's strategy for promoting associate cricket (49:00). As well as that, the recent women's international T20 tournament in the UAE (0:30), along with Afghanistan's tour of the same are discussed (2:00), and there is some news from Uganda (1:00:00).

The associate and affiliate cricket podcast is an attempt to expand coverage of associate tournaments by obtaining local knowledge of the relevant nations. If you have or intend to go to a tournament at associate level - men`s women`s, ICC, unaffiliated - then please get in touch in the comments or by email.
