Newsflash: Mankind Unable to Control Weather

Truly, the mind boggles at the incompetence of the Sri Lankan Cricket Council at their failure to prevent the moving of the Champion's Trophy to South Africa:
According to the ICC, Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) were unable to provide a guarantee during a teleconference on Wednesday that there would be no rains in Colombo during the tournament which runs from September 24-October 5.
Surely, they could have gone on a hunger strike or something? Whats the world coming to? Pakistan can't guarantee the absence of violence; Sri Lanka can't guarantee the absence of bad weather. Truly, man has never seemed more helpless, more at the mercy of random forces without design.

that was hilarious, what were they thinking coming out with that daft explanation. Then again this is the ICC, an organization which has gone to great pains in the past to show that they are incapable of thinking straight, if they think at all.
I hope the tournament is rained out in South Africa... its not as if people will be lining up to watch another protracted ODI championship that isn't the world cup anymore... not with IPLs, T20 world cups, Champions league and ODI World Cups in the same year... not to mention the Ashes.

The ICC cannot really be serious, can it?

The weather?! All they could use as an excuse was the weather?!! Do they really have no clue about how stupid the organization looks?

At least the BCCI and the IPL are honest about the fact that it is money that guides their decisions.

I guess SL is also worried about their capability to provide high (& reliable) security to players and spectators in their own country ... keeping in view that "Tamil Tigers" were blamed for the Lahore attack. Weather might just be an excuse to stay out of trouble in the near future till the recent mishap cools down.

Anyways I guess everyone in BCCSL smokes pot like their friends in ICC.
