MODERATE CROWDS are expected at Kensington Oval for the second Test match between West Indies and Pakistan starting on Sunday.

In an recent interview with WEEKENDSPORT, Barbados Cricket Association (BCA) chief executive officer Noel Lynch said there had been a decline in spectators coming out to watch Test cricket globally, and he expected the same to occur on Sunday.

“Outside of England, it is very difficult to get a lot of spectators to come in to watch a Test match. Test cricket is the one area in which globally there has been a decline in patrons.
