This week on The Cricket Pod: has the ICC missed a trick by limiting the 2019 World Cup to just 10 teams?

Sports Editor Graham Caygill has a passionate discussion with co-hosts Paul Radley and Chitrabhanu Kadalayil on why the game's flagship tournament will be much less exciting without the second-tier teams, such as the UAE and Nepal, and their star players competing in it.

England supporters Caygill and Radley also make a case for why Jofra Archer should be picked as Alex Hales' replacement in their World Cup squad.
