Good if its canceled. Let it be a lesson for ICC. This is what happens when you don't invite BD to a major ICC tournament . Good. The top Eight rule was very much BD and Zimbabwe specific, specially in the aftermath of the longest WC ever, and that too without Ind-Pak featuring in the Super Eight. Poor ICC lost so much money. So, they banned us outright with this discriminatory rule of top eight. Now go cry somewhere..

However, the 20/20 WC, another ICC event in England, will see three more European teams in Scotland, Ireland and Netherlands, and nobody has any objections with it. Don't be surprised if in the next five years or so, Ireland is granted the full status, to bolster the strength of "Western" voting members..
