Bottles rain in Cricket shame

The view of the pubic was that regardless of the existing rules, Campbell was severely hampered by the Australian fieldsman and that was unfair. The presiding umpire followed the rules of the game in force at the time. The crowd disagreed. The reaction was immediate. Missiles were flying from just about every part of the arena.
The media were shocked. Never in their wildest dreams would they have thought such a thing could happen in Barbados.
The fact is that it did.
Today, the media are saying the same thing about the Vincentian incident. They never conceived of such a thing happening here.
The fact is that it has happened, much to our chagrin.

Jacks steers clear
President of the St Vincent and the Grenadines Cricket Association, Julian Jack, was quick to condemn the action of those who sought to vent their anger by throwing missiles onto the field of play, disrupting the match for some time.
Jack is quoted by one media source as having declared, "It was embarrassing to me personally. I cannot deny that. I didn’t like what happened. I didn’t want it to happen."  Perhaps more than a little shocked by the unsightly proceedings Jack observed,  "I don’t support it. That kind of behaviour is not what we look for in St Vincent…. It is very unfortunate. It is not something that we catered for or something that we thought would happen…. St Vincent has been a very peaceful and loving place where cricket is concerned and we have learnt to abide by the umpires’ decisions.”

Fair Play
In the spirit of sport we speak of fair play as one of the most critical principles by which we should all abide whether on the field of play or in the stands as a spectator. We have always been urged that there are rules and that these are made to be followed. We have also been told that the decision of the umpire is final.
