Modest turnout for second test
THERE WAS a modest turnout of fans for the first day of the second Brighto Paints/Q Mobile Cup Test between West Indies and Pakistan at Kensington Oval yesterday.
From all reports, at the end of play, about 2 000 people had turned out, triggering speculation that the unimpressive showing was on account of the clash with the Digicel Reggae on the Hill show at Farley Hill National Park.
While a steady stream of patrons were observed at the ticketing office just before the start of play, the majority of the crowd inside the Oval was made up of middle-aged and senior citizens. It was also observed that many patrons took advantage of the opportunity for children under 12 to be admitted free.
Alvin Foster noted while there was not a big crowd, there was still some balance at the venue.
