The five-member ICC panel, currently visiting Guyana, will begin its tour of Grenada's facilities today to monitor construction progress at the National Stadium, inspect two practice venues, and visit a hotel to accommodate the media during the tournament.
Grenada, which will host six Super 8 matches, is one of nine Caribbean nations organising the World Cup, held for the first time in the region.
Reacting to fears the country would not be ready in time, Prime Minister Keith Mitchell announced Monday he would supervise all local organisation for the event.
"Recognising the absolute necessity for quick decision-making . . . I have decided to take full responsibility for the preparation," Mitchell said.

Barbados continued its preparation for World Cup preliminaries 2006 with a return game against Grenada National Football Team on Saturday 31, January 2004, at St. Georges. The Bajans won the game 1 - 0 against an ever improving Spice Boys.
