Belfast Telegraph

Decker's bitter sweet legacy

This was not the sort of coverage that cricket followers wanted for their sport.

Instead of reports on the Bob Kerr Irish Cup tie between Limavady and Instonians, there were news stories on the match being abandoned.

As the Belfast Telegraph put it in a rare editorial on the sport: “It isn’t cricket”.

There will be more to come this week as Cricket Ireland’s Disciplinary Committee considers the shenanigans at the County Londonderry ground.

And after that, the organisation’s powerful Cricket Committee will decide the status of the abandoned game and whether or not it should be replayed.

For the full story, see this week's Sunday Life.
