Anger in Swansea at One-Day tournament

Staff at Abertawe PR, Swansea's new cricketing franchise, are said to be 'apoplectic' at the announcing of the new One-Day Cup competition earlier today. The tournament will be held next week and they are unhappy at both the short-time to prepare and the condensed format. Because of the immediacy of the tournament, none of the overseas players will be available, however those in Swansea feel they are being unfairly affected because Inzaman Wasim is already in England playing for the East Midlands and will be unavailable as well.

One staff member says it is 'frankly bonkers that we are left with only 12 players to play 6, hopefully 7 games in a week. We only have 5 bowlers available. What happens if one gets injured?'

They are also accusing the domestic cricking authorities of 'running around like headless chickens' in response to the announcement of a British Championship last week and that the entire tournament is a rush job in order to have a one-day domestic side to send to the tournament.
Everyone trying hard to thwart Niue attempts at bringing World Peace.

Looks like the 8 teams for CWG are locked-in already.

With two months left until the cutoff, only India, Malta and Vanuatu are playing ODI cricket - and against each other. Regardless of how that tournament shapes their rankings, they will qualify for the T20 tournament at the Commonwealth Games because no other team can overtake them before the cut-off.

So, the Top-8 are:

I didn't even know we were part of the Commonwealth! Unexpected chance but we'll take it

Let's hope we get silver or bronze, getting gold will be amazing but with South Africa, India and Guernsey it will be tough.
