Been trying to find info
i could of sworn these guys would of had the info being updated using that new app that they launched in the summer.
But these guys need to work on getting better coverage
Seems liek once we got Cricket in JA though cause look when we play in other territories with these kind of level you have better coverage
and no no knocking JA but it's what it is.

openning 2017-10-11 13:42:50 

In reply to positiveg

We cannot blame the territory, this is a CWI game
It is pathetic
when you see the coverage from other A tours.

solidrock 2017-10-11 13:53:10 

Where are people getting scores from?

positiveg 2017-10-11 13:56:43 

In reply to openning

not saying the territory when i pointed it out i referred to some regional games held their up to last season, when you have games happening in two other territories they being covered while the one in JA have poor coverage. So either the CWI/WICB don't put enough effort into it or the their is just no internet service there.
I would of thought that after announcing the tour rather early more planing would of been put in place to having at least live text score even if you didn't have video coverage.
I think this falls under Mr. Grave so he needs to make sure that by tomorrow it's sorted out.

I want to see some fast bowlers stepping up.. WI only have one bowler on the verge of sub 30 and that is Roach.

Taylor never went there and Gabriel might reach there if he stays fit and work hard.

We need two sub 30 pace bowlers emerging.

yardman83 2017-10-13 13:29:10 

In reply to robbo

Leveridge might just be bowling plenty bouncers or short-pitched stuff and may not be threatening the batsmen. Sub-continent batsmen like spin.

robbo 2017-10-13 13:33:13 

In reply to yardman83

Yeah exactly... I would like to know... he may also have bowled at fierce pace.. good line and length's a shame that there is no stream for this as there has been in the recent past. Put simply I want to watch these players perform.

yardman83 2017-10-13 14:01:08 

In reply to robbo

I fully agree. We clearly cannot leave it to the selectors alone to unearth the next set of invitees. Plus people want to actually see how these players approach the next step up from regional cricket.

They don't want the selectors to know that there is talent outside of the preferred Island that we are currently using to select the team.
