Yeah Ireland get shafted compared to AFG. It will be interesting to see of AFG will continue to get support once they kick the Associates out of the world cup. I really hope they change their minds and the world cup goes to 12 teams.

As far as income, I think our income was similar to Ireland's preg test status. We get more money now due to being a test nation.

Afghanistan are proving they are BD lite. Drew 2-2 with Zim in ZIM and now down 2-0 to the UAE who have whopped them in both matches.

Ireland, I'm not sure would fare much better than us had they played 14 years of tests. Only test class bowler is Rankin and I'm not sure he'd have single handedly won Tests.

Regardless the ICC's neglect of Ireland is criminal. Ireland have potential if they were to be given test status now.

What is the upcoming talent like, Donal? Is Ireland going strong or will they fade like Kenya?
