Actually it is common knowledge in the cricket circles here and on the groups over the weekend that SL had already submitted their withdrawal notice before the ICC cancelled the tournament. Several teams including Ireland, the USA and the West Indies teams had made it clear to the ICC that they did not want to continue. The ICC hand was forced - by over-reacting western governments and this ridiculous fear people have. And so subsequently by the teams and players and boards. Nobody wanted to continue with the tournament other than Zimbabwe and Thailand presumably.zimbos_05 wrote: ↑Tue Nov 30, 2021 9:12 pmWe don't agree on the virus being bollocks. I've just proven that there was a choice. You talk as if you had a chat with all the players and staff and got their opinions personally. I'm not saying some players didn't want to leave or so on, but the point I'm making is that a better managed event could have continued.
And not their governments back home, their media back home, their families and friends back home?Most of the time, players make the decision based on the confidence they get from the organisers and those in charge.
Also, right back at yer; 'you talk as if you had a chat with all the players and staff and got their opinions personally'
Jeeez. Honestly stop trying to be a victim or something. I'm not 'having a go at you'I'm not ignoring the fact that they are part time pros. You are making so many wild assumptions about me and claiming that I am assuming this and that when I am completely not. You are also adding in many words on things I have not said and claiming that I am saying that. Not really sure why you are having a go at me. I made a point and it was not a random point. It was founded in thought and was put forward as, "this could have been done".
No. I stand up for myself. There's a difference.
Have their been lots of repatriation flights from Zimbabwe to places like Jamaica, Thailand, Netherlands, Sri Lanka from Harare this week?Not every government is ZANU PF. The assistance most citizens got have been charter or repatriation flights. Some government would actually get shit done.
Your whole thesis is based on assumption and generalisation. I understand the points you are making, but because you resort to certain other ways to make them, it loses impact.
You seem to have a pretty naive view of how things work in the world but it's quite cute and endearing so I'll leave you with it shamwari
