Default Icc: why is this format?

Thank Allah, we won today. But at the same time it would be sad to see teams like Netherlands missing out from big stage. This is t20 for god's sake. If you dont give chance to associate members in shorter format then how are they gonna improve. Its not fair for associate members to compete with test playing nations such as Ban/zim for one open slot from each group. I dont mind qualifying acknowledging how bad we were in 2014. However, 2 teams should hv qualified from the qualifying round to the main stage.

This is why icc will never be like FIfa and nor will cricket be as big as soccer. This elitist mentality is cancer to the beautiful game.

Very poor format. ICC is telling the associates "hey look you are playing in world t20" but at the same time it's not, we all know it's just a showpiece. The main rounds are the real deal. Teams like Netherlands, Afghanistan, Zimbabwe and also Ireland deserve to play with the big boys and not some showpiece of a qualifying format. What a disgrace.

ICC = International Corrupt Council.

What do you expect?
All the care about is money. And that too for the big 3.m

CRICKET has not grown as much as it should have because icc stayed in the comfort zone far to long.

Perhaps it all comes down to money.

Maybe they are thinking why waste the time of the Royal Indian Cricket team against Ireland or Oman. Who will be interested in that.

They are clearly putting commercial aspect before sporting aspect.

I agree with all of these except for FIFA comparison. FIFA is no way less corrupt.

Getting to the point where I actually wish ill-health on the ICC employees responsible for this crap.
