Give As­so­ci­ate na­tions a go

The Cricket Paper - - FEATURE & VIEWS - TIM MICKLEBURGH Grimsby

I GLANCED at the in­ter­na­tional fix­ture list for 2018 and won­dered what Aus­tralia were do­ing here. Then I re­alised that the se­ries wouldn’t in­clude a sin­gle Test match.

To me it’d make sense not to have a non-Ashes Aus­tralia tour but one from the likes of Ire­land or Afghanistan.

For now they have Test sta­tus they need the ex­tra games to de­velop.

The same goes for Bangladesh who should be granted a three-Test tour.
