I honestly think they should introduce a requirement that every team has one spot on their list reserved for someone from a developing cricket nation like this. I'm sure they could find someone who wouldn't be much lower standard than half the international players we get each year. Even if they aren't up to scratch, the experience they would get being around a professional setup would help these players out far more, even if they don't get a game, and that has to be good for the sport overall. Give each team an extra squad spot if necessary, if they want to keep the 3 international limit.
