Burglary forces play to be rescheduled - Leewards v Barbados, Regional 1st-class, Round 4
Basseterre, St. Kitts, February 6 - (www.bcacricket.org) - An overnight burglary in the dressing room has forced the first day’s play between Leeward Islands Hurricanes and Barbados Pride to be rescheduled by 24 hours in the fourth round match of the West Indies first-class Championship at Warner Park.
This was revealed by officials here as well as president of the Barbados Cricket Association (BCA), Conde Riley in a telephone interview from Barbados.
“I have been advised by the Cricket West Indies (CWI) Cricket Operations manager Roland Holder and subsequently confirmed by the Barbados Pride team manager Wendell Coppin that there was a break-in and the Barbados dressing room was burglarised and players’ clothing and equipment belonging to our coaching staff were stolen,” Riley said.
“As a result, the game has been put back by a day and will now start tomorrow and finish on Monday as the players were in no frame of mind to start today.”
