    The CWBCC and the public

    This is a simple question. Do you the public support whatever decision the CWBCC makes on the Nichani matter?

    Please vote honestly and according to your heart. Those who vote No will not be penalized, but please state why if that is the case. Everyone should vote.

    I cannot ever say that unequivocably I support whatever decision is made by any group, committee or organisation.

    Without the right to question authority, there is dictatorship.

    I voted yes, but I'd like to change that to a no given Neil's argument. Democracy is something that many cricketing boards of today lack, and I think that the CWBCC should be making an example for other nations.

    No, because if they don't ban Nichani it is simply the wrong decision IMO - and I'm not supporting something I think is wrong.

    Usually I would have voted Yes - but on this occasion I voted no. I feel strongly that there is only one option to be had in this issue and I would disagree if you made the wrong choice.

    Sorry if this offends you Liam or any members of the CWBCC

    i agree. it appears your view has not changed. the issue is sill relevant and i dont think anybody would have confidence with having him at the other end when batting. the questino of match fixing will go trhough peoples head. to me there is one option. ban him till he realises hwhere his loyaltys lie

    Chalk up another No.

    I will only support a decision which already has the backing of 25 out of 30 voters (including what appears to be just about the entire International Eleven)

    Any other decision is an utter farce and will surely result in mass boycott.

    sorry i went with No. I cannot and will not play with Nichani and voting yes could see him in the slips where catches win matches and i wouldnt feel comfortable with him there.

    i would have been happy to play with him, but his failure to answer the big questions in recent interviews leaves me with no option but to agree with no decision less than an extension of his ban

    On the plus side, you'd then have an excuse for all those dropped catches.
