Dear Editor, One reason I heartily support Ian McDonald’s plea for the preservation of the Georgetown Cricket Club (GCC) at Bourda as an historical sports, and specifically cricket, site is that it must remain to commemorate not only the history of the game which started to integrate the colonial territories of the West Indies, but also that it has been the nostalgic locus of all the great cricket played by the West Indies and West Indians in this country.
