Default Can we have West Europe like West Indies

Well, instead of giving Ireland the Test status, can ICC give the Test status to West Europe (Ireland, Scotland, & Holland). The market will be bigger, players pool will be better.

If it was Luxembourg, belgium, Netherlands. It could work. Or a Scandinavian team of Norway, sweden and denmark.

But none of these countries you mentioned even border each other and Netherlands doesn't share any huge cultural connection with the British Isles.

It just wont work. Better hope to just spread and invest in cricket as much possible in associate and affiliate countries.

It's a cultural thing, and I don't see the cohesion among those countries that were proposed to form West Europe cricket.

In the West Indies, we all have a common thing with us, we were all former colonies of GB. We developed a culture under that.

Cricket further solidify our culture.
