ICC should announce SWIMMING Competition instead of Cricket
However, There is an advantage of hosting the ICC tournament in Britain- Diverse and multicultural energy packed population cheering for their respective countries.
This edition of the World Cup has already had more games washed out than any before. With Bangladesh vs Sri Lanka joining West Indies v South Africa and Sri Lanka vs Pakistan in the match abandoned club.
Cricket Fans have criticized ICC for not allotting reserve days. So, ICC Chief Executive has issued a statement.
“I know that it would have been difficult. But we have got quite a lot of time in between games. And if we have got to travel a day later, then so be it.” Richardson said: “Factoring in a reserve day for every match would significantly increase the length of the tournament. Practically, it would be extremely complex to deliver.
“It would impact pitch preparation, team recovery and travel days, accommodation and venue availability, tournament staffing, volunteer and match officials’ availability, broadcast logistics and very importantly the spectators, who in some instances have traveled hours to be at the game.
“Up to 1200 people are on site to deliver a match and everything associated with it including getting it broadcast and a proportion of them are moving around the country so reserve days in the group stage would require a significant uplift in the number of staff.
“There is also no guarantee that the reserve day would be free from rain either.”
Well, People are Pissed at the regular intervention of Weather to disrupt the World Cup Games!
