In the official ICC report of today's World Twenty20 matches, the sum total mention of the history-making Hong Kong victory read thus: "Bangladesh opened the tournament on 16 March with a nine-wicket victory over Afghanistan and beat Nepal by eight wickets before losing to Hong Kong by two wickets in its last match." Arguably the biggest upset in World Twenty20 history, and it merited only a dozen words in the day's press release. Two of those words were "Hong Kong".
If you are the governing body for a potentially global sport, then you should be eager to sing the praises of such an obvious success story for the sport's development. If you are a cricket fan, then you should be eager to report back on such an incredible upset. And if you're none of those things, then you should still want to report back on the biggest story of the day, simply in order to get more readers. It's not complicated at all.
Instead, the ICC publish a report on the day's events that completely glosses over the fact that eleven mostly amateur cricketers have turned over a country who have been a member of cricket's exclusive top-tier for over a decade. It would have been less insulting not to mention them at all; instead, they have dismissed today's happenings as trivial, insignificant, and irrelevant.
Once again, I am appalled by the ICC's attitude to developing cricketing nations, but I am no longer surprised by it.
