Associate Nations: Fodder for the Big Names or Future Stars?

Ever since the success of the first Cricket World Cup in 1975, ICC has been holding ICC World Cup Qualifiers ahead of every World Cup to date. As every one of us gears up for the IPL and the forthcoming different versions of game, it is time we have a look at some of the big names among these Associate members.

Truth is, these players are just plain amateurs. Some of them play the game just for a part-time basis. It really comes down to the question as to whether teams form part of the punching bag at the biggest stage. Well, in that case, Sri Lanka was an associate member in 1979. So was Zimbabwe in the late '80s.

The ICC World Cup Qualifiers are taking place as we speak in South Africa. This slideshow is just a look at the Super Eights. The picture of the title slide is that of Dwayne Leverock, who plays for Bermuda. This is a picture of him taking a catch to get rid of Robin Uthappa (India) in the ICC World Cup 2007.
