Under-15 matches end abruptly
PLAY came to an abrupt end on the opening day of the quarter-finals in the Barbados Cricket Association’s (BCA) Under-15 Competition, yesterday due to the threat from Tropical Storm Harvey.
And those matches, which were slated to end today, have now been suspended by the BCA as Barbados is likely to feel the effects of the storm early this morning.
“Based on recent information received from the Barbados Meterological Department, all BCA Under-15 matches on August 17 have been suspended until further notice,” BCA director of cricket, Steven Leslie said in a message to WEEKEND SPORT.
Play was abandoned in all four matches between 2:45 p.m. and 4 p.m. to allow the boys to make their way home with Transport Board buses closing services at 5 p.m.
Yesterday, Government offices, stores and supermarkets also closed their doors early following recommendations from stakeholders in the National Emergency Operations Centre in light of the approach of the system. (RA)
