Yesterday (Saturday) while watching the finals of the Caribbean super 50 competition, I took time to reflect about my own cricket experience, among my earliest memories are various cricket matches I attended before the age of seven, I looked around the stands and could not see many children and that started the thought process that brought the matter at caption to hand.
The incessant loud music is doing irreparable damage to our cricket, young children are made very uncomfortable by loud environments and will not find attending cricket matches a pleasure, further, conversation and discussions which are vital to understanding the game is rendered impossible as events are heralded by outbursts by the “DJ” or blasts of songs and bizarre sounds.
How are we to develop the young fan base, encourage the young player to learn the game while creating an atmosphere suitable for a fete instead of a beautiful game?
I am asking that we take cricket back to its roots as a family game, where knowledge is passed from parent to child during games, and abandon this “party” image created by those who only attend West Indies games for the lime.
