NO MORE WORLD CUPS IN ENGLAND

Recommended Posts

Getting refunds to these games is not the easy solution. People may take time off from work, fans may have travelled from another country and paid  good money for hotels etc. the value of just the ticket price being refunded is peanuts. You need to respect your fans/consumers  first rule for any sporting organization or business.

 

FK it let’s just play IPl throughout the year 

 

IPL governing council >>> ICC

It has come down to such a stage that having a match rather than a washout seems to be an aberration from the norm.

If today's match is abandoned, it would be 3 washouts in the last 4 matches.

 

Crap.

Glad I didn't go. I was thinking of doing World Cup, but instead changed my plan and went to India instead a month before. Learn from Wimbledon, ICC. It's always in July. We could have easily start late June this tournament.

Won't be long before IPL becomes the premier global cricket cup to win

 

Right now its only second to ODI WC, but as IPL grows richer and maybe even expand, ICC tournaments will become secondary

You cant control rain,there can be slight drizzle or torrential downpours ,you just have to be ready for the worse in such important tournaments

Not sure where I read it but read KP was stating ECB can't  afford  extra groundsman in England like BCCI is able to do so in India (Sounds rubbish imo)

Only if ECB had ensured the entire outfield was properly covered. Even yesterday, match was abandoned due to wet outfield and not due to persistent rain. How can the ICC not enforce WC host grounds to compulsorily have proper drainage and adequate covers? I remember in 2011 WC, they created so much drama about so many our grounds not being ready. 

 

On top of that ICC says having reserve days would have meant deploying extra manpower! Imagine a global sports body such lame excuses. If Shashank Manohar has any shame left, he should resign rightway for such gross incompetence of his organisation. No one should be allowed to ruin cricket's global event.

Do you think we like watching it piss it down all day and wasting money amd days off work? No we *ing don't.

 

Do you think we're all sitting here laughing and prancing about in the **** falling from the sky while our season gets washed out after waiting over half a year from the last English cricket season for our beloved game to start again? No we're *ing not.

 

Nearly halfway through the English season and feels like it hasn't started yet. Soon be *ing October and we have to wait again. *ing depressing

No point having it later either. When we have a bad summer the whole of the summer is bad, then to troll cricket fans autumn after a wet summer is usually very dry

This can be avoided if there are rest days. There is no guarantee that matches won't get washed out. But atleast you will have more chances of play and less matches getting washed out. 1999 wc had only one washout. That's because they had a reserve day for each match. ICC should do its job rather than going after Dhoni for wearing inappropriate gloves and Holding for his comment about umpiring. ICC looks more like a communist regime with thought crime penalty and inept at doing their basic job which is to get more interest in cricket.

covering the whole ground only works if rain stops which did not happen yesterday.  Rain kept pouring most of the day. Also, England do have high tech drainage systems installed in their stadiums.  Bangaluru Chinna also has same system now, also Eden gardens.

it will cost them millions in wages to employees and maintenance.  it is England, not India or Sri Lanka where labor is cheap.  listen to what KP was saying.

it is not rubbish because labor is not cheap in England like India or SL.  Minimum wage is 10 pounds per hour and you will need more than 50 groundsman to bring such huge covers on the ground.  Calculate wages per person per ground 8-10 hours a day per day per year for every stadium.

Do you know ICC's tripled the budget for this WC vs the 2016 WT20 in India? Why do you think it was done? If ECB cannot spend a few extra millions to ensure ICC global tournament goes through without many issues, they better not host the WC. 

 

ECB seems to have used this WC to get a lot of money for their smaller county grounds and help the local counties.

We must have been watching different feeds then. It did not rain since the morning in Nottingham. With a fully covered ground, toss would have been on time, match would have started on time (started drizzling at 10.20, stopped, the outfield was wet and the umpired kept waiting for conditions to improve) and we would have definitely got a curtailed game. 

 

In any case, the moot point is a WC hosting ground not to have full covers is inexcusable. If it was a SC Stadium, ICC would have by now blacklisted it.

Forget all that...All English commentators would have been critical of Asian countries for not having proper ground facilities.
