This Top 8/ Top 8 garbage has been around for some time.
Just because Bangladesh weren't in the top 8 despite being close to that position, we were not even given a chance to qualify for the CT! I am sure we might have snuck in if there was a qualifer between the bottom 4 teams. This top 8 team has also resulted us in having to qualify for the main round in the WT20 despite being hosts. If this elitist attitude remains then I don't see any future for cricket amongst other countries.
