BOURDA – Say cricket in South America and you say rain.
Yesterday and into this morning a cloud hovered over whether or not there would be play in the first One-Day International between West Indies and England at the only international cricket venue on the continent.
Rain could put a damper on what was expected to be a high-octane, action-packed start to the “kamikaze” segment to the British invasion of the Caribbean.
At 7:30 this morning a decision will be made between match referee Jeff Crowe, the former Zealand batsman; Aleem Dar, the 35-year-old Pakistani umpire, and Eddie Nicholls, the veteran umpire from Guyana, whose input will carry the most sway. Officials from both sides will also sit in.
Cricket here has been hampered by rain for years, and the organisers if the tour itinerary wisely put tomorrow as a reserve day.
This will be the only international match in Guyana this year and expectation is high. Read more
