ST GEORGE'S - An International Cricket Council (ICC) delegation will visit Grenada to check preparations for the 2007 World Cup amid concerns the island nation will not finish construction of its stadium in time for the event.

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.

Grenada sports



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.

Grenada had several scoring opportunities but failed to convert any of them. The game was locked 0 - 0 at half time.

The Bajans played the second half with more grit and determination and eventually scored in the 80th minute from the boot of veteran striker Llewelyn Riley. The Bajans continue to experiment with several options as they seek the right combination to advance in the CONCACAF Zone.

The Squad to Grenada comprised, John Parris (capt), Llewelyn Riley, Gregory Goodridge, Norman Forde, Ryan Lucas, Christopher Holmes, Kent Hall, Adrain Chase, Bernard Howell, Kirk Cox, Randy Burrowes, Walton Burrowes, Kevin Daniel, Lovell,
