I could not agree more than this with you Skipper. "Obstacles put in place by wannabe administrators did nothing but create a stronger determination from the teams who seek good cricket,responsible and honest administration at the top level which is still missing." Now it has been 2 years since the last rigged elections in CAT.Never heard of the Chairman or any meetings regarding cricket.So guys! when is the elections due? Where is the dummy cricket association.Why No cricket facility in Bangkok.Harrow school is too far to do our nets practice.British club nets already demolished.ACC and ICC is doing nothing for us too. God help we cricketers.

In the past one year no one has ever heard of Thailand cricket team or any matches played by Thailand.Do they exist?If so how is it selected?Will it be from BCL teams? or they have a secret training centre.Put some lights on please...

It has been a long season but all thanks must go to the few people who dedicate their time keeping the BCL running. Obstacles put in place by wannabe administrators did nothing but create a stronger determination from the teams who seek good cricket,responsible and honest administration at the top level which is still missing.

However congratulations to all teams to a great season and well done to the teams winning their prospective divisions. Credit must also be given to the Southerners Sports Club for obtaining their own ground and constructing a wicket not just for their own use but for all teams to enjoy cricket on. Let's hope other teams follow this exciting trend.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Martin Williamson
Executive editor Martin Williamson joined the Wisden website in its planning stages in 2001 after failing to make his millions in the internet boom when managing editor of Sportal. Before that he was in charge of Sky Sports Online and helped launch and run Sky News Online. With a preference for all things old (except his wife and children), he has recently confounded colleagues by displaying an uncharacteristic fondness for Twenty20 cricket. His enthusiasm for the game is sadly not matched by his ability, but he remains convinced that he might be a late developer and perseveres in the hope of an England call-up with his middle-order batting and non-spinning offbreaks. He is now managing editor of ESPN EMEA Digital Group as well as his Cricinfo responsibilities.
