Venue making Test debut


Share post:

HISTORY will be created here today when Windsor Park becomes the world’s newest and 106th Test cricket venue.
After hosting four One-Day Internationals (ODIs) – two against Bangladesh in 2009 and two against South Africa last year – the Nature Isle of the Caribbean will be the centre of attraction for Caribbean cricket lovers over the next five days once the rain which has been forecast for the week stays away.
And West Indies captain Darren Sammy said he would like to christen the 12 000 capacity ground to the Test arena with a series-levelling victory against world champions India.
The visitors, who have never won two Tests in a Caribbean series, are leading 1-0 after a 63-run triumph in Jamaica was followed by a rain-ruined drawn second Test in Barbados. (EZS)
