Where are the fans?

Is cricket still a spectator sport in Barbados? If the answer is “yes”, may I ask: “Where are the spectators?”

It is painful to recall, as a small boy squeezing my way through spectators, three deep, in Queen’s Park on Saturdays to watch Spartan play Empire — and other teams — during BCA games. Don’t talk about the situation at Kensington Oval for inter-colonial and international matches!

These days, seemingly embarrassed television cameramen try not to linger too long on the deserted yellow and blue of the stands at the Oval as they follow the ball to the boundary — even during “first class” matches.

What has gone wrong?
