Melbourne Cricket Club President Mark Neita agrees with cricket economist Tim Wigmore that clubs in the region should be better compensated for their role in developing world-class players.
Wigmore, in a recent television interview, said regional clubs don’t get adequate remuneration for grassroots development and that more money should come to those clubs in order for them to keep turning out these players.
“He is saying clubs and parishes must be compensated in order to continue to develop more cricketers. I want to shake his hand. I couldn’t agree with the gentleman more,” Neita said.
