Test Matches Should NOT Be Played In Empty Stadiums — It Is NOT Cricket.

I have already talked about this. Click image to access my post.


I have just been watching the highlights of the Pakistan v Australia 1st Test in Dubai, UAE.

It is bloody amazing. TOTALLY EMPTY STADIUM.

Just a sea of empty blue seats.

I do NOT think there is even 100 people there if you don’t count the teams and the support staff.

You cannot play Test cricket in an empty stadium. It just kills your spirits.

There should be an asterix in the record books for all Tests played where the average attendance was less than 10,000/day.

This is a travesty.

The ICC should NOT permit this. The umpires should call the match off. I am NOT kidding.
