West Indies/New Zealand Test match slated for Guyana in limbo



ICC Cricket World Cup Super Eights - Ireland v New Zealand[www.inewsguyana.com] – The third and final Test of the three-match series against New Zealand, carded for Providence Stadium in Guyana, is now in jeopardy after the Guyana Cricket Board was deemed illegal and it’s executive debarred from carrying out cricket activities by a local judge.

Madam Justice Sandra Kurtzious ruled that the executive members of the Guyana Cricket Board (GCB) Anand Sanasie, Anand Kalladeen, Dru Bahadur, Fizul Bacchus, Alfred Mentore, Virendra Chintamanie, Rajesh Singh, Rajendra Singh, Colin Europe, Andy Ramnarine, Lalta Digamber, Ramdeo Kumar, Rayon Griffith, Nazimul Drepaul and Savitri Persaud, be restrained from conducting any affairs of the GCB.

She also restrained those defendants involved in the administration of West Indies cricket, in this case Senasie and Kalladeen from carrying out any duties at the WICB.

The third Test of the series is carded to take place from June 26 to 30 and with no Board to run cricket in Guyana, the question arises as to who will take charge of the responsibility of hosting the game.

Senior officials in Guyana believe the match will be moved to either Barbados or Dominica with a strong possibility that the game will move to Dominica because the two T20s that follow the third Test will also be played in Dominica.

There is also the possibility of the WICB contracting a private firm to assist in hosting the games because of the fact that the Guyanese public has been starved for Test cricket.
