View Full Version : Not a first class

By the way, this is not a first class match so i was surprised to read the dailystar article. Please do not hink the ongong match is a first class match. As far as I have heard, it has been stripped of it's first class status couple days ago for reasons I can not recall at this moment.

The reason was allowing 12 Cricketers to play for both the sides just to benefit the visiting team to take in as much they can.

AND that the toss didn't count

I think the next match we should play 11 and make sure the toss does count so it's a first class match.

Also, we should bowl 'em out by lunch, bat till tea, and roll 'em over again by the end of the day.

(boy I'm getting good mileage off hooke's comments :fire: )

I think it was a first class. At least thats what the news reporters were told 15 minutes before the match started.

I think first class is not granted by ICC, rather by the cricket board of that country. Like, here, BCB will give it first class status, and let ICC know, so it goes into records.

I might be wrong.
