Australian cricket

Wrong move by Cricket Australia

Tony Becca, of the Jamaica Gleaner agrees with the media protest against Cricket Australia's decision to charge a fee to cover the game.

Fazeer Mohammed, writing in the Trinidad Express, presents a different angle to the issue.

Fact is, we (I include myself because I'm just as guilty) the readers, listeners and viewers really aren't all that interested in such matters so long as we get what we want, never mind who is providing the coverage in whatever form-print or electronic. Given the reputation of journalists as a bunch of arrogant know-it-alls, there are no doubt more than a few out there who enjoyed the sight of Coward, Conn and others being locked out.
