Dominica: The dubious benefits of CWC 2007

Kenny Green of Dominica isn't put off by reports that the Cricket World Cup, which is set to take place next year in the Caribbean, may be moved instead to South Africa: “Hosting any WC is like having a house party for someone else at your home, who pays you to get the place ready, and then proceeds to tear it up and leave you to clean up. The Caribbean needs to improve for itself, not to host some event where the real beneficiaries are already some of the best off people in the region. . . . So help yourselves to South Africa, ICC.
