Cricket West Indies has embarked on a number of promotion initiatives ahead of two One Day Internationals (ODIs) here at the Sir Vivian Richards Cricket Ground starting Friday.
The Windies will face the touring India team on Friday and Sunday in the two international fixtures at North Sound and Marketing & Communications Assistant with Cricket West Indies (CWI), Kemika Harvey, said fans will have numerous opportunities to win tickets and other prizes for the matches during events at venues across the island.
“The one Tuesday [yesterday] will be held at the Rising Sun cricket ground from 2 pm to 6 pm and we will have entertainment centred round the promotion of the matches. On Wednesday, we will be at the Bolans cricket ground and then on Thursday, which is the day before the first match, we will be at the Liberta Sports Club from 1 pm to 5 pm,” she said.
“Super Dymond [Bruce Barthley] will also be hosting an hour to an hour and a half there as well. We will also be doing a lot of giveaways but we don’t want to give too much information but we do want the public to come out and see what we have in store,” Harvey added.
Marketing & Communications Manager for CWI, Carol Beckford, highlighted the affordability of attending the matches this weekend, adding that fans can also capitalise on an opportunity to get a replica Windies jersey with their ticket purchase.
“You can get into the venue for as low as US $10 but if you want a shirt with it then you can get it for US $35 for the North and South stands. For the grounds, it’s US $25 because we are saying, represent the West Indies, wear your shirt and over the years, what we will be doing is developing fan days throughout on our milestone days that people will feel proud,” she said.
Beckford has urged the cricket loving community to brace for what she anticipates will be two days of intense cricket.
“The teams got in yesterday [Monday] but because the matches don’t start until Friday they are just pretty much getting themselves together. I know both teams landed and are getting acclimatised and I think practice starts later today [Tuesday] so the coaches and the full contingent of both teams are here and some fans have actually come across from Trinidad & Tobago,” she said.
Windies go into the two ODI matches here trailing 1-0 in the series after going down by 105 runs in game two after the opening match was rained out. Both game one and two were scheduled in Trinidad.
