The Press reports that the court case fought by Canterbury Cricket has left them with virtually no money in the bank. Shock. Horror. 

Starting the past financial year, Canterbury Cricket had $505, 245 in cash assets but the cost of arguing its case in the Environment Court and associated legal expenses has reduced the association’s reserves to nearly zero.

So they took their case to court, and won. Now they have no money to contribute to the project that they want built, so they will go cap in hand to the council and ask the ratepayer for the $20 million. What a rort.
