Exciting cricket to return to the Nature Isle says Dominica Cricket Association

The bowling of the first ball in the inaugural Nature Isle T10 cricket tournament is days away, according to the Dominica Cricket Association (DCA).

“Already, the Dominica Cricket Association’s Technical and Coordinating team has met with the various squads and their management. All cricketers and management officials had to be present at those sessions in which the discussions were centered on the tournament rules and regulations,” the DCA release states.

The association is also reporting that the players draft which was held a few weeks ago, was of a high quality and following the formation of the various participating squads, training began in earnest as the teams sharpened their match readiness.

According to the DCA, the venue for all the matches is the Windsor Park Sports Stadium and the new electronic scorecard has been installed and tested in preparation for the bowling of the first ball in the tournament.

The release continues, “Work is moving along at a feverish pace to get Windsor Park to its known famous lush green outfield, while the players’ dressing rooms, media centre, and other amenities are being cleaned after being closed to activity as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic.”

The Dominica Cricket Association says it is satisfied with the private sector response to date, and is looking forward to other private sector interests participating in this “most exciting tournament which has seen massive crowds in other editions, especially in St. Vincent and the Grenadines VPL.”

The DCA says it additional measures are being put in place to ensure that the experience for patrons is a memorable one in the T10 tournament which the association describes as “a product of the highest quality.”

    Pardon my ignorance but, what does the T10 have to do with a taste of nature?

    And after the first ball is bowled the electronic scoreboard will be shut off?

    And the lush green grass on the field?

    It is so sad that this Gov’t has killed sports in Dominica.
    Back in the 1980s we used to have so much cricket games being played all over Dominica.
    Football and athletes is non-existent. Shame on the Government for not giving the youths of Dominica the support to prove themselves on the international scenes.

    Dominica has become such a laughable mess that the joke is not even funny anymore! From entertainment to sports and agriculture to tourism, everything in Dominica is a show paid for by the Government to fool and deceive the locals. They cannot do or get anything international in this country anymore unless the Government pays for it, so now it is all local rubbish for the locals! What a sad country we have become.
    Question: What is the economy of Dominica?
    Answer: Government!
