I really don't care much whether the Windies play at Lords or not, because I believe that ground is highly overrated....
What I'm more concerned about is when this tour will take place. In 2009, the entire tour was played in May, and it was rubbish, seeing spectators shivering in the stands, WI players in sweaters, rubbing their hands from the cold, etc. I decided not to go to any match of that tour, because trying to watch cricket in those sub-human conditions was not something I would consider parting with my hard-earned money for - rather, I thought the ECB should be paying me to watch cricket in May!
I hope most of this tour in 2012 will be played in June, not May....
