Soundwave Festival boss Aj Maddah seemed pretty pissed off when he discovered his organisation was running a competition in partnership with Cricket Australia to promote the new Big Bash League. Although the promotion has been running for days, it seems Maddah has only just found out about it. Last night he tweeted his disgust:
@iamnotshouting: @soundwavefest I am not having this shit cricket comp. WTF next? Lawn Balls? The fucking ballet? Sometimes I really despair.
Another tweet read:
@iamnotshouting: @soundwavefest WTF is this cricket comp and who approved it?
A post on the Soundwave Festival Facebook page offered fans a number of cricket related prizes including Big Bash shirts, signed cricket bats and even a box signed by Merv Hughes:
