Off topic slightly but you can tell cricket on a decline when quite a lot cricketing mad people don't really follow cricket anymore because of loads of reason.

Shanky for many reason prefers to watch tennis over cricket and suspect their are a lot of people that are not following cricket because of the way the game is played, run or overkill of cricket.

Even Holding admitted in interview that he hates watching cricket and what it stands for.

so people shouldn't take it for granted that cricket will always have it die hard supporters or have people watching or playing the game.

I be honest close to stop watching the game but at the moment I love the game too much for it to become a reality.
Although I am starting to become cranky or very annoyed at the way the game run at the icc level and in this country.

the weekend was when Oval was struggling, looking at my agency oval got loads of vacancy for the job tomorrow so maybe they got a good crowd coming in or loads of people cancelled the shift after day 1 lol.
when I did a few blast shifted so many people wanted to quit or never work at the oval again lol, had to tell them this is nothing come the Test match or ODI and you will be serving beer for 8 hours straight with no breaks.
ok you get a break but meant in terms of break with no serving, football/rugby games are so easy just a small window of work but cricket was constant serving or pouring drinks.
I enjoyed but a lot of people didn't.

No idea why I am not even working yesterday, today and sunday.
the agency do treat the staff like crap, lucky enough got a job with Delaware north so don't really give a crap about the agency.

Really good article here from dobell.
The perception is that Graves and Harrison have stopped listening to the counties. And, judging by the way they have suggested marginalising the County Championship - one of the recent proposals suggests playing the new city-based T20 competition at the same time as the Championship, meaning the best 80 or so players would be withdrawn from first-class cricket - they seems to have diminishing faith in Test cricket, too.

Also looks like the crowd in America got money worth of entertainment must be the most expensive cricket game ever, even surpassing the Ashes games in England.
Cheapest ticket in America were more expensive then the most expensive ashes tickets excluding hospitality.

Test crowds seem disappointing for the upcoming India tests.

It seems a lot of part time England fans are only interested in Australia tests.

I used to go to one or two days of test cricket per summer (regardless of who was touring) but can not now justify the cost. The rise in prices combined with below inflationary wage rises have made it too expensive for me.

Opening test starting on Wednesday, in peak holiday season and £56 tickets are not the way to attract a large crowd.

Surely playing games in the holiday season is a great way of attracting a crowd? If it was scheduled out of the holiday season, then that would just as much be used as a reason.

Finding these kinds of reasons reminds me of NZ commentary when every possible occurrence in NZ life is fitted as a relevant reason for a small crowd. It's a bank Holiday/it's not a Bank Holiday....

The actual reasons for the small crowd at Edgbaston is that prices are too high, and (for further reasons) the interest isn't there. The interest is the current and the price is the resistance.
