West Indies vs Australia: Dominica It’s On!

West Indies Australia logosThe battle is on as the winning Windies will face the awesome Aussies at the Windsor Park Sports Stadium (WPSS) in Roseau, Dominica from June 3rd to 7th, from 10:00 a.m. daily.  This is the 1st Test in the International Home Series 2015 of the Australia Tour of the West Indies, staged by the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) and hosted by the Dominica Cricket Association (DCA).

President of the DCA, Emmanuel Nanthan, said the organization is pleased to be hosting this event.  “Australia is playing only two tests in the Caribbean so we are very proud to be one of only two countries hosting such a formidable team.  This says a lot for the DCA and for the country since they were here in 2012 and chose to include Dominica this year.  The West Indies is also coming out of a big win against England in the 3rd Test in Barbados last month so we are looking forward to some exciting cricket.  We hope that everyone comes out to support the teams and to prove, beyond a doubt, that Dominica is the cricket capital of the Caribbean.”

Tickets for the much-anticipated Test go on sale from Monday, May 18, 2015 at the WPSS ticket booth from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. daily and from 7:00 a.m. on match days.  Ticket prices range between EC$15 and EC$35.  The full price schedule is as follows:

    “Panem et circences”, freely translated as bread and games. A tactic used by the Romans two thousand years ago to gain power through entertaining the masses and so ensure their acquiescence. Nothing is new in politics.
