'Changing rooms littered by used syringes' - Bermuda domestic cricket

Changing rooms littered by used syringes; poor behaviour from players and a lack of respect

Changing rooms littered by used syringes; poor behaviour from players and a lack of respect. Those are just three of the criticisms that umpires have reported during Bermuda's domestic season this year. The Royal Gazette reports on all the grizzly details:

Umpires have also reported continued poor time-keeping when it comes to the toss, meaning games often start and finish late, and there has also been a failure by many clubs to provide replacement balls.

The situation has got so bad that the BCB are now considering what sanctions they can take against the worst offenders.

"We will be writing to the clubs to remind them of the standards of behaviour that we expect in the game," said vice president Allen Richardson.

"If that doesn't work then we will publicly name and shame the clubs involved, telling the public exactly what has gone on.
