The Malcolm Marshall Trophy
remains on familiar turf.

Barbados, traditional holders of the annual limited-overs series against Trinidad and Tobago Under-13s, retained the trophy named after the outstanding former Barbados and West Indies fast bowler with a second successive triumph.

Their eight-wicket victory with 25 overs in reserve was even more convincing than the previous day when they coasted home by six wickets. < Read more >

With a perfect sense of occasion, Jamal Jordan chose the final of the Cable & Wireless Under-15 Cricket Tournament to play his best innings so far.

The tall, well-built right-hander made a superb maiden century which put Foundation in a supremely dominant position. Today they will take the shiny cup with them back to Christ Church.

Jordan, a 13-year-old from Sargeant's Village, resumed from 13 overnight. He added another 98 yesterday as Foundation batted all day adding 286 runs in 72.3 overs.< Read more >

Demolition man . The tearing down of Barbados' most renowned sports ground, Kensington Oval, has not yet started, but some of its most endearing items have already been stripped. Yesterday, roving photographer Charles Pitt-Grant was on hand to see workmen removing numbers from the scoreboard. It's proof the countdown has really started for Cricket World Cup 2007

Sir Everton’s comments came during his tribute to Kensington Oval during the 'Forever Kensington' tribute which was held on Tuesday night. The occasion was to mark the end of an era, prior to yesterday's start of the major reconstruction to get the ground ready to host the ICC Cricket World Cup 2007. 'People tend to put you down very quickly, especially in Barbados, when you don't perform well. You would have noticed recently that Barbadians did not come out to see the test match because they didn't like the way our boys were performing’.
Sir Everton Weekes, one of the greatest players ever to play for the West Indies, has thrown his support behind the regional team.

"I think that we should rally around them. I think that they will come good again," he added.

With the understanding that Kensington Oval will be transformed into a modern facility capable of hosting major events of all kinds, fans were also assured that the majesty and history of the great ground will always be a part of the Barbadian landscape.

That was the major theme which came across during the 'Forever Kensington' tribute, which featured reflections on the history of Kensington Oval from members of the Pickwick Cricket Club and from Barbadian legends, who vividly recounted their best memories of the ground. < Read more >

It was their 21st victory on the ground.

TINO BEST is back, but the West Indies selectors have resisted the temptation to make wholesale changes in the aftermath of a second successive Test defeat to South Africa.

After close to ninth months in the international wilderness with a back injury, the livewire Barbadian fast bowler is set to return in the fourth Digicel Test at the Antigua Recreation Ground, starting Friday. < Read more >

ollins is estactic after collecting the wicket of South Africa’s Herschelle GibbsBarbadian Pedro Collins is estactic after collecting the wicket of South Africa's Herschelle Gibbs, who was trapped leg before. No contract dispute, no absence of super star players, not even bad weather, seemed able to keep West Indies down over the past two days. The boys in maroon completed another spectacular performance on the third day of the first Digicel Test against South Africa yesterday, and are close to a victory not even the most die-hard fan would have dared predict last week. Already with a comfy 543 runs on the board, pacers Darren Powell, Pedro Collins and Reon King grabbed two wickets apiece to place the Windies in full control, as South Africa struggled to 130 for six in their first innings on a day that saw action start at 2:15 p.m. because of a water logged field from overnight rains.

All wrapped up with your cricket package is not just the sport but the partying that goes on afterwards. Whether it's test cricket or a Sunday afternoon with a few friends watching at a local club, you can bet there is going to be a great party to follow all are welcome.

Caribzones Barbados Ltd is working with the Carriacou United Cricket team on creating an unique 'Caribbean Cricket Carnival' package.

This package will include cricket fixtures complemented by historical lectures, talks from local experts on culture, folklore, poetry, art and music plus a trip to the museum and a hands-on 'Big Drum', 'Steel Pan' or similar musical experience. (Depending on the island)

The Carriacou United Cricket Board is pleased to announce the first 'Carriacou Easter Junior Cricket Festival'
A variety of watersports activities are planned. In Carriacou there is a strong emphasis on marine conservation and Caribzones Tours works closely with the Carriacou Environmental Committee, gaining knowledge of the area with practical help and guidance.

It is the Committee's desire that youth visiting the island are educated about the need to sustain Carriacou's pristine environment through good marine, forestry and social practices and projects.

The Carriacou United Cricket Board is pleased to announce the first 'Carriacou Easter Junior Cricket Festival' Ecotourism activities will include hiking, birdwatching and even whale and dolphin watching.

Accommodation and entertainment in Carriacou will focus around Tyrell Bay and plans include a 'meet the locals' street party with live music and an excellent 'cook up' to include Carriacou Juk Fish and other local delicacies.


This is a totally concept in promoting Caribbean Junior Cricket and we are confident that dual island destinations such as Barbados/Carriacou or Grenada/Carriacou will add excitement and interest to the package.

Carriacou is leading the way in this field of sports tourism and plans are well on the way to host the FIRST ever Carriacou Easter Cricket Festival.
