West Indies Cricket Board pleased with crowd attendance in Grenada
Published on August 28, 2014 Email To Friend    Print Version

ST GEORGE’S, Grenada (GIS) -- The West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) is pleased with the large turnout of spectators to the National Stadium in Grenada for the first and second One-Day International (ODI) matches between West Indies and Bangladesh.

“We were indeed delighted with the turn out,” economic development minister Oliver Joseph said.

“The report from the board of directors of the West Indies Cricket Board is that they were extremely pleased,” he said.

The National Stadium in Grenada will host a test match between West Indies and England in April next year.

Meanwhile, the Grenada government said it is not to be blamed for a decision to stop the post game party after the second ODI between West Indies and Bangladesh at the National Stadium last Friday.

“You will recall that the match ended about 3 pm and the music was going on in the posse stand and it was just stopped all of a sudden,” Joseph told a news conference on Tuesday.

“I want to make it very clear that this was beyond the control of the government. The West Indies Cricket Board makes that decision and they sent instructions out that the music should be stopped,” he explained.
