These people didn’t win, either because they were too late or in Ireland. We liked their entries though.
We asked people to name a non-Test playing nation and say how they’d get them to the 2015 World Cup.
V | Finland
Finland should definitely be on the list. As there is 24 hour daylight in summer, we could have one-dayers round the clock. The World Cup could be sorted in less than a week. As there is a high rate of suicide and alcohol problems in Finland, 24 hour cricket will either reduce the rate or double it.
ClubDave | Cornwall
I’d get Cornwall to the cup by changing players’ names to Pasty (worked for Pasty Harris), relocating the event to Truro then charging visiting teams £12.30 a day parking (funds recycled to Bermuda short kits/pasties/momentum), finally recruiting Cornishman Rick Stein to give team talks about the wealth of proud Cornish cricket talent and the terrible thought that we’re sending all our best cricketers to overseas Twenty20.
Cathal | Italy
Appoint Berlusconi as Head of Italian Cricket. Watch as the cream of ODI talent around the world discover an Italian link in their heritage and declare for Italy, foaming at the mouth with the prospect of ‘bunga bunga’ parties.
