With the T20 version of Pakistan’s tour of the Caribbean completed -the visitors taking that series 3-1 – the attention is now on the One Day Internationals which bowls off in Guyana Friday at the Guyana National Stadium, Providence with two more matches to be played on Sunday and Tuesday at the same venue before the Test Series begins. All matches in Guyana are scheduled to commence at 930am and prospective spectators are asked to uplift their tickets before the match days, so as to reduce the congestion at the frequently stringent Providence, ground entrances.
Car passes can be acquired online or at the Guyana Cricket Board office, situated on Regent Street, Bourda between 08:00 and 18:00 hours on all days preceding the match dates.
Patrons are encouraged to go out and grab their tickets at the Guyana Cricket Board head office or online as the highly anticipated contest is expected to create quite a thrilling atmosphere with the Jason Holder led side needing your cheers and support.
Today both teams, West Indies and Pakistan will arrive in Guyana at the Dr. Cheddi Jagan International Airport, Timehri. The highly competitive Pakistan side, which has given the West Indies a fierce challenge so far, will arrive with their buoyant West Indian competitors, on the Caribbean Airlines chartered flight BW 8000 at 13:55 hours.
Their arrival will leave Pakistan with just three days of preparation before the first One Day limited overs International encounter against the West Indies at Providence, a situation, that should give the West Indies team amplified confidence, since they are more familiar with the match conditions here at Providence, Guyana – match situations, which generally require high levels of versatility and adaptability.
