The stories of those growing the game across the world. Inspiring passion.
Hosts Daniel Beswick, Tim Cutler and Nick Skinner interview trailblazing players, coaches and administrators from Associate cricket and beyond in our weekly show, while bonus interviews and special episodes are released regularly.
The trio also reflect on the ‘week that was’ in the emerging cricket world, debating the issues affecting the game’s global growth.
Emerging Cricket is an independent collective of volunteers providing independent coverage of Associate cricket and beyond.

This week we're going right to the top as we speak to ICC head of global development, Will Glenwright. After the news roundup from Bes, we hear about Will's journey into the role and some of the detail of his work (3:50), we hear about the unique structure of the ICC and how the development team navigates their relationship with the board and the ICC's scorecard funding distribution model for Associate Members, and the enforcement of it.
We also hear Will's reply to questions around the reduced funding share to Associates (19:00), and the perception that cricket is less successful at development than other sports. The Olympics is as ever a major topic for cricket development (31:40), and the 10-team World Cup is raised (37:20), as well as the restructured T20 and 50-over pathway structures.
