The World Cup 2011 is long over. Only memories of it remain. However it has now been disclosed that an office connected with the event is still being operated. The reason for this is that audit work connected with the event is still being done and that to in secret. It is said that a top official is behind this move. To what use is this office being kept open we wonder.
Modern technology to the rescue
A junior cricket competition was held with great pomp at a major cricket club. The club which conducted this event was sidelined because it was said that a reserve had bowled in the final and as we all know reserves are not permitted to bowl according to the rules of the game.
The opposing club was quite sure that the offence was real but they could not prove it. However a video cameraman came to the rescue when he produced the footage which showed who the guilty party was. So much so for modern technology!
A clear case
The world is buzzing with the impending cricket elections. A leading institution has promised to vote for a certain party if their wishes are granted. This person (who controls two votes) has asked to be a liaison officer when foreign teams come to Sri Lanka. This is a clear case of you scratch my back and I will scratch yours.
Money making issues
Sri Lanka is already gearing for the big cricket event to be held on our shores in the New Year. Moves are already being made from those who are aspiring to be officers to be in charge of these venues. But there is always a catch. You can vote for a certain person and hopes he wins so that these positions can be filled. So the approaching elections in this key sport hold the key for many money making issues.
What a headache
The elections around the corner are a big headache. Those who are eligible to vote are being invited for parties almost everyday. So much so that those who are invited for these parties are now praying that this event should be soon over because then after that they will not be VIP anymore.
Costly coaching camp
Over now to a popular coaching camp in TT. Generally these coaching camps are held to give youngsters a better understanding in the sport at no extra cost. The only nominal sum charged is for the use of the hall to conduct classes of this nature. However a coaching camp in the Ratmalana area is charging students exorbitant rates. Parents are keeping quiet about it because they say that a big man is behind this move and they fear to talk about lest the youngsters suffer.
