Below is an unedited comment i received for another article, which i believe deserves a respond from MCA. Lets see if the new office bearers in MCA have the courtesy to act appropriately.
Text of comment is as follows:
"Can you pls write on ur blog and ask MCA why there is no cricket at the moment. 3 months has gone and there is no sign of any league.
When is the MCA league going to start?
When is the Interclub going to start?
At the same time could pls ask the states where are their own leagues?
There is 2 important tournaments ahead of us....DIV 6 ICC & ACC Twenty20 and we have not started playing any sort of cricket......not even sixers.
The new committee has been formed about1 month ago, and we have not heard a single word or action from this new exco.
Singapore has finished their Twenty20 tournament, now they are in the mids of their 50 overs League with white ball and colored clothing to simulate International games and scenario.
But we are still with white attire and red balls. There is a vast difference playing with white balls rather then red balls - environment, side screen, swing of the ball, ball travels faster etc
Countries like Afghan / UAE / Nepal / Oman are consistently playing active cricket.
What are our cricketers doing? Sitting at home and playing PS2 cricket on computer........are we going to win tournaments? Are we going to be an ODI nation? Are we going to be a test nation?
We can't even organize a tournament with a handful teams / cricketers available.......shame on MCA la.....
We are way behind other teams at the moment.....ppl in Malaysia do not release that just passion and skills will not make u become a test or ODI nation. There is so much for us to learn!
Do we know how to bowl reverse swing, do we know how to milk runs, do we have variety of spinners, do we have hard hitting batsmen, do we have the knowledge of the game.......
I am afraid we don't.....ask 75% of cricketers in Malaysia how does the new power play rule are played....I can bet u they would not know!! Ask them to explain to you how does a 2 Innings match is played.......you would be surprised that many will not be able to answer you.
This game needs a lot of thinking, it is not just bat, bowl and hit. It’s more then that.
What is MCA & the states doing to combat this?
I am afraid in 10 years to come China will over take us or Cricket will not exists in Malaysia…………
