Guyana on target for tri-nation series
GEORGETOWN, Guyana (CMC):
Cricket officials here say plans are progressing well for the Guyana's hosting of the first round of matches in the forthcoming One-Day International tri-nation series involving Australia, South Africa and West Indies.
Three matches have been scheduled for Guyana starting with a clash between South Africa and West Indies on June 3, before the series moves to St. Kitts and Barbados.
Secretary of the Guyana Cricket Board (GCB), Anand Sanasie, says, the games, the country's first international fixtures in two years, will form part of celebrations marking 50 years of independence.
"This has come at a great time for Guyana as we have not hosted any international matches in two years; and we are celebrating 50 years of independence," said Sanasie also a West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) Director.
"Tremendous work has been put in to host an entire month of celebrations in May".
Matches in the tri-nation series will be played at Providence which recently hosted matches in the WICB regional four-day tournament.
