Go Argentina!! We need a team from Latin world. And a team that isn't filled with fake, players from ALL over the world but that nation!

They haven't really shined much in last couple of seasons, but hopefully they can level up this season.

Where is Hamid Hasan? He should be over there. BPL, let him player, don't be an IPL! Hamid is a great T20 bowler, he shutout SA in one of the T20 WC.

Thanks for the thread Dilscoop. Good to see that Argentina has many locals in their team. I really like to see when countries have their native people playing the game. I'm not against the immigrants playing for their country, it's just that it doesn't show us the full picture of the cricket being played in the country. Once you have the local people playing, you know that cricket has reached the respective countries.

From all the teams in the WCL Div 5, I see only Bahrain and Singapore being filled with lots of Indian/Pakistani immigrants. The rest have mostly locals. Should be interesting to see who wins.

Yes, exactly. It feels good to know there are other races out there interested in this game other than the obvious 10s.

Cayman Islands looks like the weak link so far. They're 30/6 currently against Malaysia.

I came across them couple of years ago and I was amazed and happy too. Too bad Cricinfo keeps him so deep under no one knows about them. But dont be so surprised just yet. They even have age group and women cricket too.
