but moving backwards if they want to limit world cup to a mere 10 teams. no minnow is getting test status anytime soon.

whats the point of spending all this money to develop players if all the associates can ever ever play is bullshit cricket in 20 overs?

the only way the world cup thing can be tolerated is if the coming ODI league incorporates the 6 ODI status nations and gives them increased exposure to the test nations. not have a seperate league for them, but bring them into the main league.
