Before any Cricket Captain, a Coach or a team member quits, I believe the board of ICC should quit. As the fractured World Cup series comes to an end, all the teams and the fans of cricket should introspect if we need to dethrone ICC completely or the current body that runs the office of ICC from hosting any further cups. With modern day technologies, the ICC failed to set the calendar in place given the number of matches(4/48 matches is 8%) that were washed out, declaring results based on “phuck-a-worth lewis” logics and not on the basis of form and talent. The semi final(IndvsNz)that was carried forward to the next day shouldnt have happened on the first day and should have been postponed to the next day when even the commentator and my driver knew it was going to rain 6 pm(IST) onwards on the scheduled date. The number of errors from Umpires to Third Umpires made, decided the fate of the teams. For me, this has been an unfair contest for all the teams including the finalists until the last ball. #FailedWorldCup PS: Not because India dint win.
