Antigua prepares for Test series

first_imgST JOHN’S, Antigua (CMC):Antigua have already begun preparations to host a Test during the upcoming India series, in anticipation of getting official word from the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB).Sports Minister EP Chet Greene said the country had received “verbal information” that the tour would go ahead, and officials at the island’s premier cricket venue, the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium, had already started putting things in place.”We are waiting for the official communiquÈ, but the verbal information is yes, the Test series is happening,” Greene told the Observer newspaper here.Preparations have already begun at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium to host a Test during the India series.”But even at the level of preparation at the stadium, we have already started the work because we don’t want to get the announcement and then we find ourselves short of time.”FOUR-TEST TOURWICB president Dave Cameron confirmed last month that the four-Test tour would go ahead in July and August, but specific dates and venues had not been announced.The tour had been in jeopardy for some while after the Board of Control for Cricket suspended bilateral relations with the WICB, following the controversial abandoned tour of India two years ago.Antigua last hosted a Test during England’s tour of the Caribbean last year, when the first Test ended in a tense draw.Greene praised the stadium team for its commitment to moving quickly to spruce up preparations.”I want to commend Anthony Merrick and his team (and) Conley Phillip, who heads the stadium staff. We have started the work, but are just waiting on the official communiquÈ from the WICB that the game is happening.”last_img read more
