    WI cricketers are paid wayyyy above average in their respective countries
    Yeah, though in Barbados and Trinidad, average incomes are significantly higher than that (which I imagine creates its own little set of challenges).

    So exciting 2 games coming up with the following required to get in the semi-final with NZ

    Australia - must beat Pak and India (can lose to Pak if only just and would then have to flog India to get run rate above Pak)
    Pakistan - must beat Australia and hope Australia only just beat India
    India - Must beat Australia

    I think only trinidad has really high income compared to the other islands. That does have its challenges but it isn't like the WI players are on subsistence levels
    And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW

    Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta

    I don't want to sound like I'm saying that asking for more automatically makes you greedy or anything. I'm all for player advocacy. And I don't know the exact financial rundown of west Indies cricket.

    But I do remember that they were demanding a huge WC squad payout that was a large proportion of the revenue the Windies gets from ICC, at the expense of players either not in the squad (test players) or domestic players.

    At best they're ignorant and don't consider the consequence of their actions.

    Does it say anywhere that they knew it could only come at the expense of domestic cricketers?

    I wouldn't expect this level of dumbness from them (or maybe I would). If they are negotiating they probably have a good idea of how the money comes in and where it goes.

    Apparently, the Pakistan team got heckled by fans waiting for them at Lahore airport.
    What if all the switches get stuck on 'destroy'?
