Ireland and Scotland both seem to be doing their best to feck up the T20 World Cup Qualifiers

Twenty20 World Cup Qualifier taking place in the UAE. Scotland have been abysmal but still have one last chance at qualifying. Ireland have qualified after recovering from a sloppy start and are joined by Papua New Guinea.

Summary:

Papua New Guinea and Ireland qualify. .

In the Playoffs:

Netherlands play UAE

Oman play Namibia

Winner of each of those qualifies

Loser of Netherlands/UAE plays Scotland

Loser of Oman/Namibia plays Hong Kong

Winner of each of those qualifies. Loser doesn't.

That was a great recovery by PNG against Kenya. Recovering from 19 for 6 too 118. Vanua had a good all round game  with 54 runs and 2 wickets in the match.

Netherlands and Namibia the latest teams to qualify.

The two final spots will be decided tomorrow when hosts UAE face Scotland and Oman, who have lost successive matches that would have seen them qualify, have one final chance against Hong Kong.

Bangladesh Test captain Shakib Al Hasan has been given a two-year ban for "failing to report corrupt approaches".
The 32-year-old accepted three charges relating to requests for "inside information for betting purposes".
The approaches came during an international tri-series also involving Sri Lanka and Zimbabwe in January 2018, and that year's Indian Premier League.
Shakib is the top all-rounder in the one-day international rankings and has played 338 matches for Bangladesh.
He was the third-highest run-scorer in the 2019 Cricket World Cup and hit two hundreds, including against England in Cardiff in the group stage.
One year of Shakib's ban is suspended and he will be able to return to the sport on 29 October 2020.
"Those who have supported me over the years I hope they, the fans, Bangladesh Cricket Board, the government, the journalists will continue to support me in my bad and good time," said Shakib after his ban was announced.
"If you continue your support, I am hopeful I will come back to cricket soon. I will be stronger and will perform my responsibilities with more sincerity."
Shakib told the anti-corruption unit of the International Cricket Council (ICC) he "did not act upon", "provide any information" or "receive any money or other reward" for the approaches.
He has been punished for failing to disclose "full details of any approaches or invitations received to engage in corrupt conduct", a statement from the governing body said.
"I am obviously extremely sad to have been banned from the game I love, but I completely accept my sanction for not reporting the approaches," said Shakib, who is also Bangladesh's Twenty20 captain.
Alex Marshall, the general manager of the ICC's anti-corruption unit, said: "Shakib Al Hasan is a highly experienced international cricketer. He has attended many education sessions and knows his obligations under the code.
"He should have reported each of these approaches."
Last week, Shakib led a strike by Bangladesh's players which was soon called off after the Bangladesh Cricket Board agreed to most of their demands for better pay and improved facilities.
He has been replaced as Test captain by Mominul Haque and as T20 skipper by Mahmudullah.

I like Malan and I’d like to see him back in the Test squad.

Didn't know he had that kind of hitting in his picket to be honest Paul.  Could see him possibly doing a job at number 5 in test cricket, though might prefer Pope to get a chance first.

Line up has a good look to it to be honest.  Looks well balanced and a good mixture of experience and youth.

Pretty much the same team again for this game. Really like the look of it to be honest, but just wondering where (and maybe if) Anderson will fit in.

I think there’s no doubt that Jimmy will get back into the test team, looking at the current line up he would replace Curran. I expect to see a fit again Jimmy opening the bowling on Boxing Day at Centurion.

Curran is the future but I think that for now, if he stays fit then he will continue until the end of the next Ashes series in 2021/2022. He reminds me of Teddy Sheringham, a natural athlete with longevity.

Agree Jimmy plays when fit, but taking Curran or Woakes out makes the tail quite long.  Having Woakes or Curran at 8 does give a good balance to the side, but I suppose you have to put trust that the top 7 can score runs on a regular basis.

Decent first day, the openers did their main job and saw off the new ball, shame Sibley went without piling on the runs but I've always said a big score is secondary for the top 2 and getting 20-30 overs out of the ball is what they're in the team for. Burns and Denly have both carried on from the Summer and got good scores without it being matchwinning and Root failed again  which is becoming too common.

With Stokes in a strong position and a few capable batsmen to come I think 400+ is on here if we're sensible for the first half hour or so tonight.

Bit of a boring run rate. What happened to the England of the 2000s that would try to get 350-400 on the first day when they were on top?
