Tri-nation Cricket Tournament

Postby KarenS » Fri May 12, 2006 7:44 am

From "TRINIDAD and Tobago will host an International Cricket Council (ICC) sanctioned tri-nation cricket tournament from May 16 to 20 at the Queen’s Park Oval in Port-of-Spain.

The tournament will feature Zimbabwe who are currently taking on the West Indies in a series of One-Day International matches, Canada and Bermuda.

Yesterday Omar Khan, an executive member of the Trinidad and Tobago Cricket Board (TTCB) said the board accepted the offer to stage the tournament by the ICC recently.

He said the opportunity to host the competition will not only be an opportunity to showcase this country to the world but also a chance to enhance the development of the sport here. The tournament bowls off with a clash between Canada and Zimbabwe on May 16 from 9.30 am and will be followed by a meeting between Bermuda and the Canadians, the following day (May 17).

A day later (May 18) Bermuda will play Zimbabwe with the final on May 20.

According to Khan, who is also the manager of the Trinidad and Tobago cricket team, the ICC will take up all the expenses of the tournament .

Cricket fans will be charged an entrance fee of $40 for the matches and seating accommodation is at the Errol Dos Santos and the Jeffrey Stollmeyer Stands only.

Former West Indies captain Clive Lloyd will act as the referee for the tournament while Bermuda fireman and umpire Roger Dill will become the first member of the ICC’s Associate and Affiliate Umpires’ Panel to stand in a One-Day International."
