The Guyana Government yesterday slammed the West Indies Cricket Board’s (WICB) decision to remove the scheduled third cricket test match between the West Indies and New Zealand from the Providence National Stadium because of the passage of a bill which seeks to regularize cricket administration in the country and questioned whose interests the WICB was really representing.
“The Government of Guyana notes with deep regret the decision of the West Indies Cricket Board to relocate the Third Test between West Indies and New Zealand, from Guyana. We observe with even greater concern, certain assertions made by the WICB regarding this matter, stated the press release from the government yesterday.
