There is a call for more Barbadians to attend cricket at Kensington Oval once the West Indies are playing.

Close to 5 000 spectators were present at the region’s cricket mecca on Sunday for the third and final day/night One-Day-International encounter against New Zealand.

The West Indies lost by five wickets in the series decider but it was a much improved crowd from last Wednesday and Friday for the first and second matches.

Manager of marketing and communications at the Barbados Cricket Association (BCA), Steven Leslie, told NATION SPORT officials of the local governing body for the sport on the island want to see more fans support the Windies in the future.

“We are hopeful that more persons would come to the stadium but we are very happy with the arrangement that has been obtained. Persons were able to have a free flow into the stadium and they could easily find their seating. They were some longer delays in the previous series and we were happy that at least that part of it has flowed this time around,” Leslie said during an interview in The Three Ws Stand. (AGB)
