    High farce in Antigua

    The incompetence of the WICB and the ICC has been exposed as a result of the relocation of the 2nd test from the Viv Richards stadium to the Antigua Recreation Ground. The test, which will be the 3rd test in a series expanded from 4 to 5 tests, will restart on Sunday. For what it is worth, West Indies lead the series 1-0.

    How on earth could the WICB have allowed a test match to commence on a ground where the bowlers' runups and the outfield were so sandy that all it took was a short spell of rain to make things so bad that the test had to be abandoned? Did the ECB put sufficient pressure on the WICB to get their act together? How on earth could the ICC, as the governing body of the game, have allowed the test to start with such playing conditions? The ICC had at least 4 representatives at the ground - the match referee, the 2 on-field umpires and the third umpire. How could all of them goof up bigtime?

    What is it about a Caribbean ground and a bunch of ICC officials that causes them to totally lose it again and again?
    Who is responsible for the 2nd test at the Viv Richards stadium (Antigua) being relocated?
    England & Wales Cricket Board
    Indian Premier League
    International Cricket Council
    West Indies Cricket Board

    a commentator on radio said that the crowd at the ground is over 90% England supporters !

    can t help feeling that the West Indians in particular and the World in general.... are losing interest in Test Cricket

    Its only in England that the Test arenas are packed out

    20 20 cricket seems to be taking over ... but in all this
    excitement is the wonderful game of cricket morphing into
    a mid atlantic form of baseball ?
