Windies Cricket..Lovely Windies Cricket!

Cricketwindies is the leading voice for Caribbean and International cricket news, information and opinion. We’re a community of cricket fans who follow all cricket. In other words, a bunch of high-strung, fanatical cricket enthusiasts who have far too much time on their hands.

For many years the West Indies team ruled the cricket world, playing undefeated in a Test series for over 15 years. Recently the West Indies team has suffered several losses but with the emergence of new high-calibre players the future for the West Indies cricket team looks very good!

West Indians are passionate about their cricket, quick to cheer when the team performs well but also quick to criticize a poor performance. Thousands of West Indians always turn out to watch their team play .... and hopefully win!

Cricket is seen as a unifying force in the West Indies, bringing together players (and supporters) from across the region. This gentleman's game has brought considerable exposure to the islands of the Caribbean, with the West Indian cricketers being remembered not only for their incredible talent and skills but also for their deportment and sense of fair play.

West Indies Cricket Forum

Welcome to the Cricket Windies forums, one of the biggest forums in the world dedicated to cricket.

Antigua and Barbuda and the West Indies Cricket Board, WICB, are jointly buying the Stanford Cricket Ground and Sticky Wicket restaurant.

Stanford Cricket Grounds

The Government of Antigua and Barbuda and the West Indies Cricket Board, WICB, are jointly buying the Stanford Cricket Ground and Sticky Wicket restaurant.

The properties belonged to the Stanford Development Company. That company was one of the businesses owned by jailed Texan financier, Allen Stanford.

The properties are being sold for 7.5 million U.S. dollars. The cost will be split between the government and the WICB.

Prime minister Gaston Browne says the WICB will contribute 4.5 million dollars of the cost – giving them a 60 percent share.

The Government will contribute the remaining U.S. three million dollars – owning the remaining 40 percent.

 

Browne was speaking in parliament on Thursday. He remains optimistic about the purchase and says its commercial value is about twice the price they are paying for it

He also believes that it will help grow the country’s economy and keep the WICB’s headquarters stationed in Antigua.

 

The prime minister also argues that the government alone could not have maximized the property’s use.
