Caribbean to undergo inspection for World T20

Kingston:

An international contingent will pay a six-day visit to the Caribbean from Monday to inspect venues and measure arrangements being made for the next year's World Twenty20.

Venue inspections commence in Barbados and will move to Guyana the following day where the team will stay for two days before heading to St. Kitts on Wednesday.

They fly to St.Lucia on Friday where part of the inspection takes place at Beausejour Cricket Ground during the One-Day International between the West Indies and India.

The venue inspection tour concludes on July 4. The team includes representatives of the West Indies Cricket Board, the WT20 2010 project team, the International Cricket Council (ICC), the Federation of International Cricketers Associations (FICA) and ESPN STAR Sports.

"This is the first venue inspection for ICC WT20 West Indies 2010 and I believe the region is familiar with this process, particularly building on the experience of 2007.

"This time around, we don't have the task of constructing new stadia and that's a major plus. However, there are still several elements which have to be put in place to host an event of this magnitude and we need to assess what must be done in the four host nations," said Tournament Director Ernest Hilaire.

"We have less than a year before the cricketing world comes to the Caribbean again and we intend to pace ourselves well in planning and executing cricket's newest showpiece," he added.
