And why was the Sri Lankan cricket board expected to give one to the ICC for the Champions Trophy?
Cricinfo reports on the forever-roving search for a new tournament host:
“According to the ICC, Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) were unable to provide a guarantee during a teleconference on Wednesday that there would be no rains in Colombo during the tournament which runs from September 24-October 5.”
Right — but did they have to go through this comical “guarantee” process? Couldn’t they — oh I don’t know — just have looked as seasonal patterns and talked to a weatherman?
