After the dismal performance barring a couple of gusty knocks the Minnows have been a total disappointment in World Cup 2011. It sparks the age old debate of ‘Should Minnows be allowed to play in the 50 over World Cup

Yes, all teams and players start from the bottom must rung. Who are “minnows” today can become a powerhouse tomorrow only if they get the exposure at the top most level!!
There’s no concept of player transfer etc at the international level, so the talent at the minnow teams will go unrecognised!

The Minnows should be a part of every World Cup.. Minnows are the once who are capable of creating big upsets in the big games..

Any Strong team can be knocked out of the World Cup as we have seen in the past… Whatever their performances are, hoe ever they play, they must participate… Even though it makes matches boring, sometimes it makes the matches even more interesting to watch smile

Who knows one day the Minnows might reach the finals of a World Cup and even end up winning it wink :D
Hail the Minnows smile


Cheers

The Minnows are not giving easy outing to the strong teams… Team India struggled for a close win against Ireland and yet again against Netherlands.. Even though the Minnows are losing the games, they r making the strong oppoents struggle for victory….

Yes they should be allowed because they are the ones who sometimes changed the tournmament smile Although not kicking anyone out but they gave some twist by defeating england and changed the standings and teams meeting in the quarter final may change smile

Ireland should be given more chances like often touring between both sides and see there performance then in coming world cup. They would be the main competitors.

Before ICC rules put Minnows they should answer this asked as how often these minnows were given chance to play with top 10 teams?

Yes They should be allowed to play.. But may be 2 teams. They can keep the total no. of teams to 12 to make the world cup more intresting.. No with 14 teams most of the league matches are one sided..

Yes, they should be allowed to play in World Cups. But ICC needs to take care that the minnows just do not play in World Cups. They should also be playing lot of cricket with all the top nations in the world. Because making them play only at the World Cup will not help their cause. These teams sooner or later will turn into strong powerhouse of cricket.

FYI: Sri Lanka was considered minnows in the 1975 edition of World Cup.
