Or even a bat!

Yes even i have problems with my skinny fingers. I'm no expert but I think its probably easier to train a batsman into keeping against seamers than it is to standup to the medium pacers and Spin. Thats when I notice the difference. Between the Pipers, Reed's and Foster's to Prior and Buttler.

Another very comfortable victory for Scotland this morning, winning by five wickets with over five overs to go.

They are the next big thing along with Afghanistan, Nepal and Hong Kong/China. PNG have had quite a history of working with Australia at developing Rugby League as a sport, now more recently cricket - a great chance for the game to expand

If I recall correctly, PNG played in the first OD World Cup in 1975.


It seems I'm completely delusional, but I do recall PNG from a previous decade.

Found it.  They played in the 1979 ICC trophy which had lots of matches in the midlands.  Warm-up matches were against local club sides.

They certainly played in the ICC trophy in England in 1979.  They didn't reach the final and so didn't qualify for the World Cup that began immediately afterwards.
I remember that tournament because I played against Fiji in one of their warm-up games, which doesn't exactly make me an international cricketer but I can pretend.

Wonderful, 60 overs a side and played with red balls.

Some great scores, including 94-9 off 60 overs!

Well done to Scotland in winning their group and claiming a sport at next years ICC T20 world cup.

The final day of group matches is tomorrow, with three games to decide Group A with PNG v USA, HK v group leaders Namibia & the disappointing Ireland side facing a tough tie against Jersey. Where a win for the Channel Islanders could give them a play off place at the expense of the home side, subject to the other results.

The group winners qualify for the T20 world cup, 2nd-4th play sides in each group go through a knock out series of games to claim the two remaining places.

The vital Jersey v Ireland game is live on skysports 3 and the ICC website now, with 'Pommy' Mbangwa, Johnty Rhodes and Matt Prior part of the commentary team.

A win for Jersey would clinch them a place in the play off games.

All done and dusted - an easy win for Mr Porterfield and his team.

A win for either Namibia or PNG this afternoon will clinch the world cup place for their team, leaving Ireland hoping to qualify in the play off games.

Although they lost, the Jersey side performed well and overall performed better than expected in the tournament.

Made me think of that bowler who's figures were 8-8-0-0 in a 40 over match. Saying that bowling 30 odd overs in a test and conceding 5 runs must be fairly frugal? http://www.espncricinfo.com/magazine/con...26589.html

I remember going to lords with my dad to see India defend 160 odd off 60 overs against a great West Indies side to win a World Cup...

A brilliant performance by Hong Kong, with 47 from former Bear Jamie Atkinson, this morning to beat Afghanistan by 5 wickets and clinch their place in the world t20 finals.

This was followed by a very comfortable win, and the 4th qualifying place, for the Netherlands.

Both Afghanistan & Namibia have a final chance to qualify, with a game against the 4th place team from the opposite group on Thursday.

It's not unknown for teams from that's region to deliberately lose in exchange for significant pay outs from illegal bookmakers, just think back to the "victory" in the World Cup that lead to Bangladesh prematurely being given test status.

Actually Hong Kong are a very good side that are well coached, and have a developing pool of players to select from.
