Not sure Hong Kong and Argentina would be my favourites. The Afghans beat Hong Kong comfortably twice in the last ICC tournament whilst Argentina struggled at the recent Americas Championship, even against the Cayman Islands who are also playing in this tournament.

My favourites are Uganda and Afghanistan, with Hong Kong to be third.

Executive editor Martin Williamson joined the Wisden website in its planning stages in 2001 after failing to make his millions in the internet boom when managing editor of Sportal. Before that he was in charge of Sky Sports Online and helped launch and run Sky News Online. With a preference for all things old (except his wife and children), he has recently confounded colleagues by displaying an uncharacteristic fondness for Twenty20 cricket. His enthusiasm for the game is sadly not matched by his ability, but he remains convinced that he might be a late developer and perseveres in the hope of an England call-up with his middle-order batting and non-spinning offbreaks. He is now managing editor of ESPN EMEA Digital Group as well as his Cricinfo responsibilities.
