Where have you been man? didnt you read the news? cric info? bbc?
Cricinfo said:Until not so long ago, they would have started the match today and carried on into a second day to ensure both teams got the full 50 overs. The change is for TV companies, who hate their schedules being mucked up. But this is the biggest match in the game. Everything else has been sold out by the ICC, surely for one match they could put cricket before cash? Rant over.I loved this. Good job ICC!
True and it has put alot of people like me off cricket, infact alot of people here in Pakistan now say that they are losing interest in this sport.Oxy said:Cricket fans all know about the WC. Its about widening participation - taking the game to new consumers/users/fans etc etc.
Its DIED from that perspective
Sean said:The ICC are killing cricket. For god sake, who cares about money, we want an effin 50/50 match. Not a 20/20 WC final. THE BIGGEST MATCH IN 4 YEARS! ICC are a crock of ****.
Fitting considering how this world cup has been. Im meanwhile enjoying the 92 finals highlightsSean said:10.55am And the cover comes off ... that's been the highlight of the fun so far today. Our man in the stands says: "Just a few seats still to be taken - the music is loud and clear and at midwicket the Aussie fans are still keeping themselves entertained by hitting around a big inflatable ball."
Being really miserable, if there is no play today or tomorrow then the teams will be declared joint winners.
