These things happen. When we went to Cardiff for the ODI England v South Africa it was barely raining for two hours but the umpires refused to start the game. Then it started raining heavily so by 1:30pm I said to my lads that we might as well go home. En route home and having just crossed over the Severn Bridge we heard on the radio play was about to start in Cardiff. So we turned around and went back over the Bridge for the second time that day and headed back to Cardiff. Before we even got there they were off for more rain and didn’t get back on again.
So my day off involved a lot of waiting at the ground, driving, paying the toll twice, parking, petrol etc and we didn’t see a single ball. Got refunded 90% of the tickets but still out of pocket for around £100.
Mate. It’s how it goes sometimes.
Yeh I know and I've had so many experiences like that with cricket I can't remember them all. You kind of expect it.
This is quite a bit different imo and of course they had to do something but having put all the effort in to get the tickets and spent thousands of pounds it's gutting to get nothing.
I don't want sympathy and these things do happen but it's still oxf*rd annoying.
Will you get a refund on flights, hotels etc? Or will you still go to the venues? ‘‘This should have been handled a lot better.
Had all England games so no other expenses.
Just the foreign money transaction fee and the disappointment of not going, after thinking we were.
