Chik-V strikes


Share post:

THE EXPLODING CHIKUNGUNYA and dengue outbreaks have rocked Barbados’ top cricket competition.

Yesterday, one of the island’s major cricket teams was crippled as just under half its members called up to play could not take to the field because they exhibited symptoms associated with the two mosquito-borne diseases.

Queen’s Park-based Massy Stores Spartan were forced to forfeit their Elite Division match against ESA Field Pickwick at Foursquare Oval in St Philip as they could not find a fit team to play.

Spartan were unable to field the minimum seven players needed after the umpires called play, after two players had to rush to the doctor and were unable to participate, while another three were too sick to make it to the ground.
