Windies tour likely to be most poorly watched tour due to schedule overkill: MacGill

Melbourne, Sun, 11 Mar 2012 ANI

Melbourne, Mar 11(ANI): Former Australian cricketer Stuart MacGill has predicted that he upcoming series in the Caribbean looms as one of the most poorly watched tours in decades.


He said that the hectic cricket schedule has led to a huge disconnect between Australian cricketers and the fans.


"Having already endured what felt like at least four seasons condensed into the past domestic summer, we have been given just a single week off. I can't believe Australia play their first ODI in the West Indies this Friday. The entire series of five ODIs, two Twenty20s and three Tests will be over before the end of April, about the time most of us would be ready to enjoy watching another game of cricket," The Sydney Morning Herald quoted an excerpt of MacGill's article, as saying.


He suggested that probably the best solution is to pretend the players are on a pre-season training camp and forget about them for the next couple of months.


MacGill expressed hope that the West Indies tour will 'sneak under the radar' with to limited coverage due a huge time difference so that players can enjoy football season to take a break from cricket.


He also hoped that no player gets injured at the pre-season camp and pointed out that there are already many such players sidelined from the Australian squad.


MacGill rated the 1995 Caribbean series as his favourite in which Australia won the Sir Frank Worrell Trophy for the first time in 20 years. (ANI)
