IMG_4087

Hi all

Please find listed below six men’s international teams that I suggested keeping an eye on when T20I status was dished out all around the globe. Firstly, here’s the link to my original post…

The number in brackets denotes current world T20I ranking.

Argentina (56)

One of the few South American countries with any great cricket history, Argentina have plenty of work to do having fallen off the radar somewhat.

Canada (25)

A few years on from any meaningful international success, Canada will hope to climb back into the top 20 soon. South African Davy Jacobs leads the side nowadays. The successful launch of the Global T20 Canada and with it the attraction of international stars will hopefully inspire a new generation of Canadians to take up the game.

Denmark (24)

One of the early Associate trailblazers, Denmark are looking to make a name for themselves once again. Coached by Ireland cult hero Jeremy Bray, they came unstuck in recent World Cup Qualifiers finishing behind Jersey, Germany and Italy.

Fiji (48)

Like Denmark, Fiji’s proximity to a major cricketing nation, in its case Australia, made them an early Associate force but they’ve got a lot to do in order to ascend the current rankings.

Rwanda (77)

It’s early days but there’s a lot of cricket activity in Rwanda and they’ll surely be on the rise soon. They’ve got a lovely ground and cricket is the fastest growing sport in the country.

South Korea (64)

Languishing at the wrong end of the ladder, South Korea have some technically correct players but need to adapt to the modern game. In a recent regional World Cup Qualifier SK finished ahead of Japan and Indonesia but we won’t be seeing them in Australia next year.
