Grenada welcome international cricket

ST GEORGE'S, Grenada (CMC):

A large crowd is expected at the Chinese built state of the art national stadium in St George's today to welcome the return of international cricket to the island after about four years, officials have said.

West Indies play Zimbabwe in the first of three one-day international matches, a couple days after a peaceful general election campaign, which has brought about a change of government.

The Windies last played in the Spice Isle back in 2009 during a Test series against Bangladesh and their return is being eagerly anticipated on the island.

"It is great to be back in Grenada as international cricket makes a return to Grenada National Stadium," declared WICB's Event Manager, Cindy McLean.

"The local association and organisers are working hard and we expect a great match on Friday to international home series off to a good start."

Officials are reporting a buzz in Grenada as fans look forward to seeing the West Indies players on show for the first time since their ICC World T20 victory in Sri Lanka last year.
