Barbados: Poor Attendance for First Super 8 at Kensington

Barbados Free Press laments that despite the “carefully crafted photographs” that “give the impression of a stadium packed with excited cricket fans enjoying the best cricket in the world”, attendance at the Super 8 match at Barbados’ Kensington Oval was “only 37% of capacity”.

    The sugar coated promises of the ICC made to Caribbean governments to get them to spend hundreds of millions to create the infrastructure whereby the ICC can make more millions mainly from television syndication, in which the Caribbean governments do not share, will likely turn out to be bitter pills that have to be swallowed.

    Another example of the strangulation of third world aspirations to first world status.
