Play back at Kensington
AFTER A BREAK of more than five months, cricket returns to Kensington Oval today when the Barbados Pride and Leeward Islands Hurricanes clash in the fifth series of the West Indies Cricket Board Professional Cricket League (WICB-PCL) four-day competition.
The “Mecca” of West Indies cricket has been out of action while remedial work was undertaken to combat an invasion of “goose grass” that threatened to overwhelm the more pristine “Bermuda” grass.
As a result the Pride were forced to shift their second-series home fixture versus the Jamaica Franchise last November to the Windward Cricket Club, Lucas Street, St Philip, after the Oval was deemed unsuitable by local authorities.
Barbadian cricket fans will be anticipating nothing less than full points from the locals as they come up against the bottom-placed team who have been beaten outright in all of their four previous matches, accumulating a lowly ten points.
