The WICBandits should be held accountable for these poor wickets. But of course they are accountable to no one.

Why bawl and bawl about the same things over and over...there are some things we the fans cannot change....and even the powers that be in the regional governments cannot change

WICB and Cameron are large and in charge....UNTOUCHABLE

I will bawl sometimes....but let me follow the game at other times

Sometimes the cricket game must trump cricket politics

But only players get curse. If the match at Sabina was an international one the plug would have been pulled.

Are you sure the wicket is that bad? Could our poor batsmen be making it look worse than it really is?

The pitch will be much better when the CPL comes around. I will bet you that.

Or The WICBandits should hold those accountable (i.e the local board) for these poor wickets. But of course, they are bad managers and, perhaps, don't know what accountability is.

Players always get blamed for everything. That is the norm.

The territorial boards make up the WICB. They are all Bandits.

Don't tell me 25 wickets in a day is poor batting only. That is a piss poor wicket.

This a historic game too, it being the first D/N FC match at Sabina. Not even proper video/audio coverage. Cricket Worse Indies sucks!

Excuses, excuses, excuses...yes, de same way dey described a cricket ground as "a cow pasture" when the grass was affected by fungi.

Absolutely no excuses then but de hypocrite can come up with one now.

Could the time of day the match being played have some negative effect on the proceeding? Something like the lights are not bright enough?

Remember Sabina Park was the venue for the match where the lights went out during the bowlers run-up to bowl. The first logged occurrence of its kind.

These same teams scored 1000 runs in three innings at Warner Park in their first encounter. Yes the players are mediocre but this time an ill- prepared wicket for a historical occasion led to the result you are seeing now.

It may be 'The first logged occurrence of its kind', but I seem to recall a bowler running into the umpire...perhaps he suffered some kind a blackout during in his run-up? big grin lol

Probably poor batting more likely. Did any one player complain about creeper balls or ones taking sharp lift? Talking about 25 wickets didnt that kinda happen in a Test match in India about a week ago?

I have no dog in this fight but these are the usual knee-jerk reactions from people who weren't at the game...

The low scores in this match had nothing to do with the quality of the wicket....

Very unfriendly conditions for batting coupled with an inability to cope,,,,and extremely favourable conditions for bowling which were exploited...

Like West Indian batsmen are incapable of batting when there is no sunshine?

A new low...but lemme wait for de Leewards Islands mgr's report.

Seeing that you were in attendance, could you please fill us in on some details?

What color ball was used for this day/night event?

Was a different color ball used for the day segment of play?

First report to come in to De Courtesy and I am quoting here verbatim:

"I was not there on the first day but I watched the second day. The pitch definitely had uneven bounce on a good length and it affected the mindset of the batsman as to whether to play forward or back. It was not a wicket fit for first class cricket based on what I saw".

Thank you.

Gleaning this MB and confirming that pacers from the Leewards took all 20 Jamaican wickets this report above provides some useful evidence.

"...The pitch definitely had uneven bounce on a good length..."

Hmmmmmmmmm!!

It would be interesting to ascertain how many overs the Leewards spinners bowled in the entire match.
