It’s a bit late now to be proactive as far as I am concerned.
They should have never completely sold out to T20 (scheduling has hurt the shield too)
They should have never stood by and let domestic cricket decay
They should have never stood by and let the system decay
They should have never stood by and let grassroots decay
They should have never stood by and let the national setup and selection become a debacle as long as they did
They should have never agreed to this back to back Ashes event (especially when the team is in its current shape, oh and agree to the limited overs tour of India in-between)
They should have never agreed to **** the national team over in 2019 for money (it wasn’t good enough England but is for Australia apparently)
They should have made high end people accountable (looking at you Mr Sutherland)
I will admit Cricket Australia is not at fault for all of Australian Cricket’s current failures and doomed future as a sport but their incompetence and complacency as a governing body sure hasn’t help. A sporting governing body is meant to look after the best interests of its sport; Cricket Australia hasn’t done that, all they look after is their own interests.
You may be okay with accepting mediocrity but I sure am not, and Cricket Australia have been nothing but mediocre for a long time now.
They have dragged Cricket through the mud for too long now with their ineptness. The negativity the sport has copped over the last few years has crippled it for years. So many kids are turning away from the sport and who could blame them really. Cricket Australia should cop a lot the blame for this.
Cricket Australia’s failure to get the very best out of the sport for awhile now has destroyed my passion as a Cricket fan. I hardly ever watch Australia play anymore as I get zero enjoyment out of it knowing what has happened. I will never forgive them for that.
Like I said, too little too ****ing late. Too much damage has been done.
