What?????

It is ridiculous .If Leewards forfeited the game then Barbados should be awarded 12 points and thus finish second ahead of Leewards.If this is allowed to stand it shows the incompetence of those who set the rules.

LI vs Pride is taken down.

There is something fishy going on there.

Complete nonsense on the part of the LI. I hear people saying that Bim also declared to deny LI bowling points. They forget that Bim had a 100 run lead, so the Bim declaration also had the effect of putting the LI under pressure to save the game, much less win it! There should be penalties for forfeiting the game such that teams are assessed enough penalty points to relegate them to the basement. I suggest 30 points for forfeiting a game and also, if you forfeit a game, none of the players on that team can get any awards.

Cricket comes last to the decision made by the Leewards.

2nd or 3rd what difference does it make?

Up to now can't believe this. The Leewards actually put placing second ahead of fighting to win a match....Pride would have to had to bat last so the onus would be on the Leewards to fight and put up a good lead.....and they forfeit the match instead! POOR POOR SPIRIT OF THE GAME!

This needs investigation and repercussions

Wow.

What is the difference in terms of prizes/compensation between finishing 2nd and 3rd in the league by the way?

On top of this, there's seriously some Spirit of the Game breaching going on here. But does the governing body have any teeth to declare any future sanction on Leewards for this?

What a ridiculous conclusion.

Correct but LI are still ahead by 1 point or something close to it in the standings. That's their reason, I suppose!

It is the fast bowling point they were worried about, if Barbados bat the second time.
The fast bowler would had to take five wickets, if Pride had won the game out-right, forfeiting the game assured them, second place in the tournament.

If Barbados had bowled them out for 83 in the second innings, the points such a scenario would have given them is the points that Barbados should get.

I hear yuh. Those points would depend on the number of wickets the pacers got plus the points for the outright win. So I'd assume both.

Reminds me of this game:Link Text.


Barbados took an early 2-0 lead, but Grenada made it 2-1 with seven minutes remaining. Barbados were heading out unless they scored a goal—any goal!

One Barbadian striker realised that his team were unlikely to score another goal against Grenada, with only a few minutes to go and Grenada playing an ultra-defensive tactic. Instead, he decided that their best chance of winning was to make the game go into extra time and score a golden goal, which would count as two goals.

So he promptly powered the ball past his own stunned goalkeeper to make it 2-2.

Now, Grenada needed to score a goal—at either end—to avoid extra time and to go through to the final. The Grenada players, initially stunned by the goal and suddenly realising what was going on, turned around and headed for their own net.

Now the comedy really starts as the Barbadians had anticipated this move and rushed to defend the Grenada goal—in addition to their own—until the whistle went for extra time. Now be honest, who could make up a story like this?

In the end, Barbadian ingenuity was rewarded as one of their strikers scored the winning goal four minutes into extra time, which sent Barbados to the final.

As was to be expected, the Grenadians were not amused. Grenada manager James Clarkson was furious. "I feel cheated, the person who came up with these rules must be a candidate for the madhouse.

"The game should never be played with so many players on the field confused. Our players did not even know which direction to attack; our goal or their goal. I have never seen this happen before. In football, you are supposed to score against your opponents in order to win, not for them."
