Last night one of the most disgraceful events in English cricket history occured at the 20/20 Durham v Yorkshire
9,000+ specatators filling the ground, play about to commence, Sky Sports conducting a live broadcast, loads of Kids eagerly looking forward to seeing their heros... everything in place for a showpiece for the game... and what happens?
Due a player registration technicality that related to a previous game, and identified in the minutes before the play was due to commence the entire match is cancelled and everyone sent home!
Dissappointed crowd, dissappointed kids, dissappointed Sky Sports (who after all are PAYING for this product).. What a complete Joke. what incredible short sightedness by the administrators
Us hot-heads here at PV-Academy can think of about 10 different ways the situation could have been handled that would have allowed the game to go on and the 'technicalities' dealt with later. To cancel the game at a moments notice, in this day and age, when there are so many other things people could be doing is simply unacceptable. How many people are going to line up again next time if this sort of thing can happen at the drop of a hat? No wonder the parents just shuffle their kids off to football camps.
Any one else as outraged as us?
