    It's something called the European Cricket League, which sounds encouraging. It's started popping up on my Twitter feed and I've tagged ad hoc in a post add it turns out there's a Cluj team.

    Enjoy the flight on these:

    Ooh, well I suppose if they can get a dry spell there's no reason why not.

    Somehow I'd missed the bit about the World Test Championship where it said players would get squad numbers. I quite like the County Championship vibe.

    Wagner wore 13 for Essex, incidentally. Wonder what brought on the change?

    Sorry for being late to this, but that scorecard is a thing of interest.The Malian opening bowler Oumou Sow went for 82 off her three overs, incluing 10 wides and 16 no balls. Mali's innings contained six ducks, incluidng two run outs (so they weren't hanging around). And Ugandan bowler Anyigo's three wickets were all leg before.

    GO has started a separate thread for the Test.

    Don't think there is one, so I guess we might as well carry on here?

    Small procedural point, is this the thread for England v Ireland or was there a dedicated one?

    Welcome back Test Cricket - it's been 128 days since the last one.

    And I don't really know about anywhere else and wouldn't like to guess when it's probably determined by rainy seasons.
    On Wikipedia the international matches are divided into two pages for each 12 months. There's one called the 2019 international cricket season which is May - September, i.e. when England are at home, and another for September - April, when everyone else is at home. The overview of the 2019-20 international season says:

    "The 201920 international cricket season is from September 2019 to April 2020.[1][2] Currently, 31 Test matches, 63 One Day Internationals (ODIs) and 61 Twenty20 Internationals (T20Is) are scheduled to be played during this period. The 2020 ICC Women's T20 World Cup in Australia is also scheduled to take place during this time, starting on 21 February 2020."

    Then there's a list of the tours and tournaments due to take place. It's for this reason that I think we should probably start a new thread for International Cricket in September each year, because England's home matches usually get their own thread.

    In terms of the domestic seasons there, that would probably require some kind of research and a table. Which I might do.

    Ha ha.

    More like Rotherham playing Liverpool.

    Probably a complete mismatch.

    Sorry, I was referencing their finishing 4th in the 2015-2017 ICC Intercontinental Cup. Which sadly appears to be the most recent chance for nations to play 1st class cricket.

    The top ten probably wouldn't be happy having to schedule 5 days against Ireland or Afghanistan. It could also be a trial balloon to make all Tests 4 days so they can fit in more T20s.

    Hong Kong are not 14th. They are unranked over 50 overs.

    19th in T20

    Lots of expats. But Hong Kong's population is almost double that of new Zealand.

    I know that cricket isn't played seriously in many countires but it really is dispiriting when you look at the countires competing in the World Cricket League. How can Hong Kong have a claim to be the 14th strongest cricketing nation in the world?

    Women's test matches have an over rate of 17 as opposed to men's tests of 15 (or County Cricket of 16). So that's 102 overs a day as opposed to 90.

    That was an attempt to claw back time lost to the rain though, wasn't it?

    The Women's Ashes Test I think clipped along at 100 a day or thereabouts too.

    The one they had in South Africa had 98 overs a day.
