    You should have told the ICC and the World Cup Organising Committee that it would be inconvenient for you before the tournament started then.

    Nice selfish attitudes!

    Nonetheless, I have wondered why there have been no day\nighters.

    Presumably because of the lack of light towers?

    from what i heard from other people here(there was a thread about this) it was because it wasn't fair or something like that for the team batting second in the last wc so they didn't want it to be the same...

    the ground that does have lights is where group c games were played the Beausejour Stadium in Saint Lucia, no night games were probablt scheduled because of England, why did say the groupB with three sub continet teams and bermuda much better time

    Yeah it would have been fun to have some day-nighters in the WC but I$C$C$ [©Richard] has its own mind and they might have thought why waste money by using lights.

    I'm not sure whether pup was joking or not, but anyway, chill out a bit.

    Hey LA ICE-E just chill out can't you take some humour, and why are you getting so hyper if i joked about the ICC does someone from your family work for ICC for you to lose your cool like that.


    P.S: You are entitled to give your opinion but don't you call me stupid, thank you and have a nice day!!

    i think its good that theres no day nighters coz traditionally the west indies is terrible conditions for the team batting 2nd. apparantly the team batting first at day nighters in the west indies win 70-80% of matches. which isnt very fun coz then the winner of the toss is greatly advantaged. whereas in these day games it hasnt seemed to matter that much really.
