Does reserve matches really need to be televised??
The complexity involves mainly moving broadcasting equipment and personnel. The teams themselves have sometimes 5 days between matches and England is not particularly big and they have efficient transport so I don't buy the travel will be too hard bit.

With the amount of rain forecasted it wasn't hard to predict nah.

Even the women's ODI currently going on bt WI and England in Essex is also stopped due to rain. Its an England wide phenomenon right now.

seems almost a 50:50 chance of tomorrows game being rain affected too. Let's hope it's a shortened over match and Gayle hit em!

It's not too complex at all, especially in a small country like England. It's just too expensive, and initially reserve days weren't included in the scheduling. So obviously now after all the planning is done, it looks like reserve days will be logistically impossible. But, if it was planned from the get go, there'd only need to be a few scheduling shifts and reserve support teams.

But the reality is, this is unusual weather for the UK in June. Last couple of years in June, there heat waves and weeks without rain.

So the ICC try to muzzle Michael Holding and he told them to go f...k themselves.

^He damn right to call them out, the umpiring was atrocious.

But to go further and say the officials caved under pressure from the Aussies (whether or not that is true) is conjecture on his part and casts aspersions on the professionalism of the umpires, so I can see where the ICC is coming from...:|

Massa day done. Fack the ICC, and kudos to Holding. It's not as if good umpiring was being questioned and ridiculed :roll:
Too many times, we ignore the foolishness of umpires, and target the messenger.

Windies need to take a few pages from India wrt to batting...50 over cricket is far different from t20...

Back to the game, should be easier to bat second as the conditions have changed

WI bought this upon themselves. They need a proper batsman. One who doesn't want to hit everything for boundaries.
Apart from Hope, Bravo is the only other such batsman but he out of touch. Lewis ain't really looking all that right now either though.

To not bat out 50 overs is murder man.

Well this loss just screwed up the nice NRR WI has after the Pakistan thumping.

As comprehensive a loss as they come

This article is even more spot on than Holding's commentary. A must read

A good read and batting first showed the lack of being able to sustain ones wickets

Seems like Russell knees finally say no mas

Russell's replacement will be interesting...

Windies batsmen need more exposure to spin bowling....

As much as I would like to windies in the final 4, I think it would be India, Aus, Eng & NZ..judging from the games thus far

The solution is actually simple
Put gayle and the other t20 swipers lower down the order
Like 6-8 and let them slog out the last 25 overs

Asking them to bat early and concentrate for 20-30 overs of a 50 over match ain't happening after several years of not doing that
