INDOOR CRICKET WORLD
World Cup 2000
Following the unfortunate withdrawal of the Pakistan World Cup side, organisers were faced with a quandry - the schedule for Cup games had already been drawn up, including Pakistan's involvement. To simply remove Pakistan from the schedule would have resulted in teams having 'byes' when they were scheduled to play Pakistan.
The decision has therefore
been made to combine six South African under 23 players with the six Indian
under 23 players in South Africa as part of a development programme. This
combined team will simply play those games originally scheduled for Pakistan.
It will be known as the MTN World Cup Development Team - we're just going
to refer to them as MTN.
