I think Mommsen summed it up rather despairingly with the associate nations; how they can improve when they play no cricket?
Is that the South African Scotsman ?!!???
I do feel for them but then why would I want to pay sky money to see Scotland get smashed vs a weak proper nation?? Bad enough currently with weak full nations!
Of course, if there were a divisional set up for the different formats they'd be playing in leagues and could progress up etc
