Poorly Phrased Sentence of the Day

From Cricinfo:

According to the ICC, Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) were unable to provide a guarantee during a teleconference on Wednesday that there would be no rains in Colombo during the tournament which runs from September 24-October 5.

Shouldn't the ICC be consulting meteorologists rather than administrators? And if they had provided a guarantee would the tournament have gone ahead? After all, the Pakistan Cricket Board did guarantee presidential-level security to visiting cricketers.
