St John’s, ANTIGUA – With the additional two Twenty20 international matches in the upcoming West Indies versus Pakistan series, the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) has had to make an adjustment to its regional schedule.
The match-up between the Barbados Pride vs Guyana Jaguars in Round 8 of the Digicel Regional 4-Day is now scheduled for March 23 – 25 and 27, because of the T20I match with West Indies and Pakistan which will be played at the Kensington Oval.
Operations Manager, Roland Holder, in advising of the change said “The pitches will be covered by an artificial covering which will prevent damage to either of the pitches during the matches in progress.”
Holder went on to explain, the practice has been previously used in the UK where the Sunday League was played alongside First Class matches and as a result in infrequent times “should not be a problem for either of the matches.”
Pakistan opens its 7-week tour of the Caribbean with the T20I in Barbados.
