All set for One-Day series
KINGSTON – Despite heavy rains here recently that caused widespread flooding, cricket officials have declared the country ready to host the West Indies Cricket Board Regional One-Day Championship which bowls off today.
“Everything will be in place for cricket on Thursday,” said Dave Cameron, president of the Kensington Club that will host one of the opening matches.
Heavy rains here in recent weeks, which resulted in flooding in some parishes, was a source of deep concern for organisers, especially over the state of the outfield at the respective venues.
Organisers were forced to move the two first games scheduled for Chedwin Park, which was severely affected by the bad weather. Kensington Park was pencilled in at the last moment.
In the opening Group A double header today, hosts Jamaica face the Windward Islands at the Trelawny Multi Purpose Stadium, while title-holders Trinidad and Tobago clash with Combined Campuses and Colleges at Kensington Park. (CMC)
