HEADLINE: NEW AND IMPROVED MATCH CENTRE FOR DIGICEL REGIONAL 4 DAY

 
CaribbeanCricket.com 2017-11-07 12:07:20 

St John’s, ANTIGUA - Cricket West Indies (CWI) continues its role and function to grow the coverage of the Digicel Regional 4Day Championships, via the match centre on www.cricketwestindies.org

Cricket fans can follow ball by ball scores either on the website or via the WINDIES LIVE smartphone app, available on Android Google Play and the Apple App store.

Fans will find full scorecards for each match, in addition to team, tournament and player statistics after each match and round of play. The tournament points standings are also updated after each round to reflect results and points leaders.

The live video streaming will be expanded to three cameras mid-way the tournament, giving fans will receive a better viewing experience. Audio commentary will also be available. Viewers will also be able to access wicket replays and full replay of matches available on the match centre platform from today (Tuesday, November 7).

Commercial Director, Dominic Warne, says, “we’re delighted to increase the opportunities for our fans to watch live cricket. Streaming these Digicel Regional 4 Day Championship matches ensures that both avid fans and newcomers to cricket have the chance to follow every game and watch their local stars and future WINDIES heroes, wherever they are in the world.”

This will also serve as the platform to reach not only the West Indian diaspora abroad, but to also make inroads in the Asian cricket market as well as non-traditional cricket markets.

“The Digicel Regional 4Day Championships continue to be the premier tournament that fuels our cricket, particularly our Test team. We believe in growing and nurturing this product that has proven to be a success in the past and will only continue to aid West Indies Cricket in the future,” noted Warne.

no need to improve the coverage when the quality of the games being covered has fallen off so badly!

In reply to camos I beg to disagree...improved coverage works OK for me

By now there are sufficient feathers from me on Dave Cameron's hat.

Dave don't take this as a let up to holding you accountable for your stewardship of West Indies cricket...but for now, I tip my hat to you.

I agree for years there was little to no coverage
this is like from 20 to 100 I'll take it.
I think this is good. And I applaud the CWI for work done in this field..
And I think it's a bit disingenuous for someone to say they can't see the little improvements in the game since the start of the pro system. Rome wasn't built in a day and a lot more days to go.

The Bowling strike rate eh right and we doh need net run rate for 4 day matches

Thank You ,I believe that You are absolutely correct in your assessment
the sad thing is that those in the governance of Cricket in the Region
are still fumbling in the dark , and they fail to acknowledge the fact that THEY are Wrong .

They continuously ignore the fact that in the longer versions of the game WE are at or near the Bottom of
International Cricket .

Their Supporters in this Forum are
living in La La Land ,and are diehard
Supporters of the Big Idiots .

THE REAL QUESTION IS THIS :

THE COMPETITIVENESS OF OUR PLAYERS IN

THE INTERNATIONAL CRICKET ARENA

IN THE LONGER VERSIONS OF THE

GAME ?????????

You know one thing you good at is your constant BA rants.
Do nothing you complain do something you complain.
You prove that you are someone who will find anything to complain about and not provide any solution. And if you do offer a solution would never babe One to put any work in seeing it through. U must feel good when you find other who help you fight your One cause.
No one is saying the product on the field is the best. But this one improvement is one even you have asked and argued about. How many times your long ass rants have gone on about the fact that the people running the affiara or WI Cricket ain’t doing nothing to showcase the product. Now they done it you can’t even say thanks and move on. Man ungratefulness wuss Dan witchcraft.

I would like to know from You & Others who think like You , How & If this Match Centre is going to magically transform Our Team's standing in the
International Cricket Arena ?????

I believe that currently in the longer versions of the game , WE are
at or near the Bottom ;in the International Cricket Arena .

The gist of what I am stating is that
this Match Center aint going to magically make our Players Fully
Competitive in the International
Cricket Arena .

If You believe it does then Show ME
how this Match Center is going to make our Players be in the top 5 Teams in these versions of the game .

I seriously doubt that you and others who think like You , can do that let me once again state this freaking Fact :

THE KEY COMPONENTS THAT GENERATE

COMPETITIVENESS ARE PHYSICAL & MENTAL

STAMINA .

Sadly most of Our Players are bereft
of these Key Components , What is the
current standing of our Players & Team in the International Cricket Arena ???

Are You and Others who think like You
satisfied with the current Standing ???

What in your opinion must be done to
make our Players fully competitive in
the International Cricket Arena ???

Can you cite any credible evidence that those in the governance of West Indies Cricket have addressed the Issue regarding the competitiveness of Our Players in the International Arena ???

I expect answers from you regarding these Questions that I have raised here .

 
Pacy 2017-11-08 01:39:26 

WICB for a change will get my support and appreciation for their effort to bring the FC matches live. The coverage of all the 3 matches during the second round was a huge improvement from what we had been having over the many years of the past.

In reply to POINT

Why don't you park your arse in a corner and roll your rosary beads?

No one is arguing that this development will transform West Indies on field cricket and turn us into world beaters.

You have brought in your usual boring extraneous stuff to assist your position because you are arguing from a very weak position.

The thread is entitled a "...NEW AND IMPROVED MATCH CENTRE..." and such development will improve undoubtedly our viewership of the games.

Deal with the merits or demerits of such a centre...and don't regurgitate the ridiculous angle you have chosen here adinfinitum because you are so vacuous on this improvement as well as being caught up in a time warp.

And yes...Dave Cameron gets credit for this improvement in my books.

Give kudos where it is due.

Ask the Bajans on this forum how long this has been going on in Barbados.
Two competing radio stations have been doing live reports from the grounds every Saturday during the cricket season for more than a decade.

Then technology became affordable that clubs started streaming play. This was taken up by the BCA using some of the same ppl to deliver streaming coverage of their important fixtures. Saw the same being used at the Oval during the two games this season.

So this is a get on board "no brainer". CWI has to look at cricket as an industry and develop the business around cricket to tap into related revenue opps.

This will certainly improve fan experience. big grin big grin big grin big grin

In reply to POINT

did anyone here say that the match Centre will improve the team standings?
I never did.
What we saying is that folks and you included been saying no one study the game in the region because no one has access to see the game nor the scores or stats in real time
SO they check one thing off their list of things to do and you can't even say good luck You come and copy and paste
Anyway enough of you cause all you gonna do is copy and paste some more still
cause you barely ever tackle the topic
as long as you see WICB/CWI in a header you copy and paste without ever addressing the current topic

I've watched more streams of Wanderers matches U13 and Elite, than regionals.

Live video is ok but

The commentators drive listeners nuts

If they are reading this :

We doh care if ya from Toco or St Kitts.

WE doh care who ya friends are and when last you saw them

WE doh care how much you love English soccer and which team you support.

WE doh care where you went last night and who you were with.

WE doh care which local team you are a member off.

Do us, listeners, a favour and shut up about yourself and ya stupid jokes.

Be Professional stick to the game in front of you and
dont deviate.

And for god's sake give the batsmen names and scores
regularly, instead of telling us about ya mudder in law.

The Point I am making is this :

MAKING OUR PLAYERS FULLY COMPETITIVE

IN THE INTERNATIONAL CRICKET ARENA

MUST; IN MY OPINION BE THE FIRST

PRIORITY .

This is due to the fact that Everything else revolves around the
success of Our Players in International Cricket .

It seems that You & Others disagree
with what I have stated . My opinion
is the above , evidently you & others
disagree ; I am simply pointing out
that You are wrong ; due to the fact
that Our Players performances in the
International Cricket Arena cannot be
reasonably construed as being Stellar.

I would hire those former Players who made our Team in the shortest version of the game Great .

But as I have stated elsewhere in this

Animosity to Players & Former Players .
This is why WE are like the Character in Alice in Wonderland :

RUNNING FAST , BUT ARE STILL

It is this asinine attitude why we are where we are , at or near the bottom in the longer versions of the

Exactly and that’s what I been trying to point out to Point ( pun intended) for a while now. He feels that if we bring back all we former greats we gonna end up with a winning team. But he no want to get that point. So o done.

As for the match Centre I must say I like it as I’m getting up to date scores and stats. With live video and audio.
Most commentary don’t bother me so me can live with it for now. But guess cause I not been able to stay fully llocked into a game for any extended period.

That might be true , but please inform me the following :

IT SURE AS HELL WAS NOT THE WORST

INTERNATIONAL CRICKET BOARD IN THE

COMMONWEALTH , AKA THE WICBC/CWI .

Let me remind You that THEY were from its inception in Charge of this version of the game in the Region .

IT IS DUE TO THEIR STEWARDSHIP WHY

OUR PLAYERS WON 2 CONSECUTIVE WORLD

CHAMPIONSHIPS IN THIS VERSION OF THE

GAME .

So please stop writing B.S , neither
You or others can deny this freaking
fact . So it is utter Stupidity to
state that Former Players do not possess the ability to make Our Players Competitive in the International Cricket Arena .

THERE EXISTS TANGIBLE EVIDENCE

THAT THEY HAVE ALREADY DONE THAT ;

BUT IT SEEMS THAT TO YOU AND OTHERS

THAT WAS A MIRAGE .


BUT THAT IS SIMPLY A FIGMENT OF YOUR

IMAGINATION . NEITHER YOU ; AND

I do not believe that this is a very difficult Question to answer . I have

It aint a sophisticated Question , I

I have cited to reinforce that they can ; the Successes of our Players in the Shortest version of the game who were Coached by some of our Former Great Players .

You are telling me about Viv & Andy , while deliberately evading answering
my question above , let me restate it for your benefit again .

THE SUCCESSES OF OUR PLAYERS IN THE

SHORTEST VERSION OF THE GAME WERE

MADE POSSIBLE BY OUR FORMER GREAT

PLAYERS , NOT BY COACHES WHO CAME

FROM OVERSEAS .

The Stanford T20 was one that I buried.
No business person, could do it, using his investors money.
I am aware that you were proud of him, employing so many of our great players, but it is unrealistic.
So that is the reason for ignoring the question.

WAS IT THE COACHES EMPLOYED BY THE

WHO WERE IN CHARGE OF THIS FORMAT OF

THE GAME ?????

This aint Rocket Science , so I am baffled by the fact that this simple

Ah thought dat it was Eldine Baptiste and Roger Harper dat weere the coaches for the Stanford Superstars and dey were not considered great players by any stretch of the imagination.

Gus Logie and Kelvin Williams were the coaches for Trinidad in dat series.

The past greats served mainly as country ambassadors and on the Board of Directors and didn't do much coaching so ah eh know where your padna get dis ting dat is de past WI greats dat help us produce a T20 team.

Sanford hired coaches for all the teams and payed the players so that their work was to turm up training on a daily basis. He also provided funds for development of playing fields.

Sandford used the WI greats to legitimize the tournament and payed dem well. Holding dropped out after smelling a rat.

There is absolutely no shadow of a doubt that it is their Stewardship that had Our Players winning two
Consecutive World Championships in
this format of the game .

IS THERE ANY FREAKING DOUBT IN

ANYONE'S MIND IN THIS FORUM THAT

THEIR STEWARDSHIP PLAYED A

SIGNIFICANCE ROLE IN OUR PLAYERS

COMPETITIVENESS IN THIS VERSION OF

THE GAME ???????????????????????

It is in my opinion very troubling that many people in the Region who claim to be Cricket Experts bluntly
refuse to acknowledge this freaking Fact .

They prefer instead to talk about
Stanford and his Ponzi Scheme , seemingly insinuating that THEY were
also involved in Stanford Schemes .

If that was true why the HELL are they not in jail with Stanford . It
is a very nasty tragedy to tarr them
as if they were involved with Stanford Ponzi Scheme .

If they were involved , tell me why the Hell they were not locked up ????
Frankly in the Region there are a lot
of Nasty Bad minded People , who simply do not want Our Former Great
Players get credit for their Stewardship of this version of the game from its Inception .

I HAVE NEVER HEARD OR READ THAT ANY

OF THESE PLAYERS WERE CHARGED WITH

BEING INVOLVED WITH STANFORD'S PONZI

SCHEME .

Agreed,
I have no issue with pointing out crap in fact it should be pointed out. but nothing is wrong with giving them a pat on the back when they step up to the plate.
We know having the games shown won't mean thte player will improve but it's a step in proper management and marketing of the game.
