Oval Hype


Share post:

EXPECT large crowds for the third and final Wisden Trophy cricket Test between West Indies and England starting on Friday.

The West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) said ticket sales had been going well and was anticipating a heavy turnout on Kensington Oval, especially over the first three days of the match.

And with the traditional late rush expected, numbers could climb to near capacity.

“Right now, we’re averaging about 8 000 across the board and Kensington seats about 15 000  so I think that with five days to go with some England fans expected to come and purchase tickets on the ground, we could probably see some huge crowds for the first three days,” the WICB’s senior communications officer, Adriel Richard, told the Daily NATION.
