Big and Small


From the excellent blog by Nasir Khan comes the news that the Falkland Islands has become an affiliate of the ICC. Nasir also reported earlier this year on the Chinese Cricket Associations developments and targets, namely ;

2009: Have 720 teams across the country in a well-organised structure
2015: Have 20,000 players and 2,000 coaches
2019: Qualify for the World Cup
2020: Gain Test status

Now any student of the absurd can but wet their lips at the prospect of a country of 3000 people taking on one of 1.4 billion.

It also makes you wonder where the best site for Falklands Cricket Stadium might be - as you can see in the photo there is no shortage of open ground.

And before anyone says so, I realise the Falklands are not that much closer to the South pole than Dunedin - poor old Bangladesh!
