Wisden criticism targets ECB attitude to club sector

Club cricketers would not be surprised at some stinging criticism by the Wisden almanack editor of the ECB attitude towards the recreational game, especially towards the Asian sector.

This was the view of the National Cricket Conference managing director Simon Prodger at the launch of a free-of-charge service for emergency fixtures and spare grounds. He urged the ECB to reach out to the Asian community “as a matter of urgency” and to direct better funding at player pathways and grass roots development programmes in the recreational game.
