Cricket World Cup - News Flash

THE EVENTS of the past few days have demonstrated there are no predictable results in Cricket World Cup 2007.

Compliments of the Barbados Nation News

As West Indies prepare to face Zimbabwe at Sabina Park today, they would have sat back and taken note of what Ireland did to Pakistan and what Bangladesh did to India on Saturday.

The shock results have thrown the notion through the window that the majority of group stage matches were going to be predictable with results in favour of the eight leading international nations against the fledgling countries.

Against that background, West Indies captain Brian Lara is not under-estimating either Zimbabwe or Ireland.

"It's going to be very competitive. Zimbabwe and Ireland have shown they cannot be taken lightly," Lara said yesterday.

"We're going to play the game with the same gusto like we had against Pakistan. A win tomorrow [today] will put us into the second stage, but it doesn't mean we have any points as yet.

"We've got a very important two games left and we're going to take each game one at a time." < Read more >

Excellent Golf Courses, fabulous weather, great all round location Barbados is ideal for golfing holidays.

Barbados’ triumph in winning its first Hoerman Cup title is attributable primarily to better preparation. This is the view of team manager Charles Edey, who said that thanks to the support of management of the golf courses, the team was equipped to pull off its historic win.


Cricket has been an integral part of the culture for many years.

MANAGING Director and chief executive officer (CEO) of ICC Cricket World Cup 2007 Inc. Chris Dehring says "everything (for the event) must be done to world-class standards the best Cricket World Cup ever, the cricketing world would be watching the Caribbean and depending on the region to deliver a first-rate event on all fronts, especially in hosting the 16 competing teams."

Let the work begin!" was the call of Stephen Alleyne, chief executive officer of World Cup Barbados, and workmen moved in with a giant machine and demolished the sightscreen in front of the Peter Short Media Centre at the Kensington Oval on June 18th 2005.
