95 per cent ready

Kensington Oval is 95 per cent ready for next month’s T20 World Cup with the Greenidge and Haynes, Hall & Griffith, Coppin, Cozier and Short Media Centre and Hewitt and Inniss Stands already handed over to the International Cricket Council (ICC).

Work will be completed on the Three Ws Stand and the Garfield Sobers Players Pavilion in a few days. The Players Pavilion has been enhanced with modernised ice-baths.

Chairman of the National Organising Committee (NOC), Noel Lynch, told Weekend Sport, that both the ICC and Prime Minister Mia Mottley were pleased with the readiness of Kensington Oval for the June 1-29 global event, adding that 1 222 tickets had been sold yesterday at a cost of $173 646.

“Barbados is ahead of any other venue in the World Cup, that is the feedback that is coming back behind the scenes. I know that both the Cabinet and ICC are very pleased with where we are right now,” said Lynch, who gave a World Cup update to Cabinet yesterday afternoon.
