Third New Zealand Test to be relocated from Guyana
Published on June 2, 2014 Email To Friend    Print Version

ST JOHN’S, Antigua – The West Indies Cricket Board on Sunday advised that following engagement with the government of Guyana on matters pertaining to the Cricket Administration Bill in Guyana, the parties have not been able to find a mutually agreeable resolution and the third Test between West Indies and New Zealand will therefore be relocated from Guyana.

The WICB said it has serious reservations that the Cricket Administration Bill, which was passed in the Guyana National Assembly, thrusts the administration of cricket in Guyana from an independent body to the government of Guyana. This the WICB views as undesirable and inconsistent with International Cricket Council tenets.

The WICB sought an undertaking from President Donald Ramotar that the bill not be signed into law until these matters are resolved.

The board gave its commitment that once Ramotar provided such an undertaking all arrangements in Guyana will be kept in place.

The WICB has not received such an undertaking from Ramotar, and, as a consequence, the WICB said it is left with no option but to relocate the third Test between West Indies and New Zealand from Guyana.

The WICB is currently considering alternative venues and the new venue of the Test will be announced on Monday. The dates of the Test – June 26 to 30 – remain.

The WICB said it regrets having to take this course of action and seeks the understanding of cricket fans and stakeholders in Guyana.

The WICB said it will continue to review all matters pertaining to cricket in Guyana.

The PPP actually believes its own propaganda, that it must control every aspect of life in Guyana, despite all evidence that everything they touch, turns to dross..

These Clowns need to take off their blinkers, and acknowledge that their administration of our Beloved Country has been a colossal disaster..The Opposition needs to be highlighting all of these failures for the benefit of the entire country. We must rid Guyana of this Pestilence, which is the PPP
