Oval management to blame

WINSTON STAFFORD is clearing the air.

The outspoken Barbados Cricket Association board member doesn’t truly believe Kensington should stage only cricket, but he is criticising the management of the Oval for its overuse, leading to wear and tear of the outfield.

Stafford made the comments after a recent Facebook post was “misinterpreted” as him saying that Kensington should stop hosting non-cricketing events.

“I’m not saying it should not be used,” he said, “but I’m saying it is overused because it seems entertainment is the only source of income for KOMI and I did not realise that KOMI was set up to be an entertainment centre.

“What I said, which is there to be read, is that the ground was developed specifically for playing cricket. But we could do very little about the 50th anniversary Independence celebrations as it would be bad politics to say we couldn’t use Kensington. It would be nonsense.
