Legendary Australia leg-spinner Shane Warne has revealed that he would like to see as many countries as possible taking part in the World Cup.
The International Cricket Council (ICC) has decreased the number of teams at the 2019 World Cup to 10, but Warne believes that the decision to do so is a step in the wrong direction.
“We all think it’s a global game and would love everyone to play the game of cricket,” Warne told reporters in Houston. “All we can do is do our part. And that’s why we’re [the All-Stars] here in America playing the game of cricket and trying to promote the game of cricket as best we possibly can. We would love to see all the countries play in a World Cup but at the end of the day, the ICC are trying to do the best they can by the game of cricket.
“America only just missed out on the last [T20] World Cup. So hopefully we can see America playing in a World Cup down the track and maybe one of these kids or some of these guys that we’ve coached in New York or Houston or maybe in LA, we might see them in one of the World Cups down the track and that would be absolutely fantastic.”
