We've seen such great stories with the rise of nations like Ireland and Afghanistan into the world cricketing elite... could Papua New Guinea be the next dream story?

Certainly it's a team of underdogs that is turning heads at the moment. It's great to see.

What does everyone think? Should cricket be an Olympic sport?

The ICC believes the time is right for cricket to return to the Olympics for the first time since 1900 and is eyeing the 2024 Summer Games.

It's hard to think of a more beautiful ground to play cricket on than Bradman Oval. It's small (so just about anyone can hit a four), it's ringed by gorgeous old trees, and it has those iconic stands and scoreboards.

Do you have a favourite cricket ground growing up? Do you play on one today? Have you re-created the ground in the stad...ium creator?

Have a great weekend, everyone. Play hard, play nice
