Clean and competitive cricket is back, but we can't see it

So I just read that Bermuda will host the Americas Championship
I like Beyond the Test World as a blog. It shifts the focus off all the players and gives cricket some popularity.
When I read about non-test playing nations play, my initial feeling is that it will be stiff competition because the teams are all in the same league.
Sometimes of course, they do something miraculous and end up beating a test playing nation. The best examples of that are  the Netherlands against England in the World T20 last year or Ireland against Pakistan in the 2007 World Cup and of course, Kenya against the West Indies in the 1996 World Cup.
But yeah, if given an opportunity, I'd watch this series because it would be clean. Let's face it Bermuda, the United States, Canada, Cayman Islands, Argentina and the Bahamas. You can't play dirty cricket with that combination.
There will be no media coverage and now intense fan-following.
It will be clean cricket in its purest and most competitive form
