ST JOHN'S---Antigua and Barbuda Cricket Asso-
ciation president, Leon Rodney, says the country
is ready to host the curtain-raiser for upcoming
three-match Test Series between West Indies and
Speaking in the local media yesterday, the ABCA
chief said the cricket-loving island had all systems
in place for the five-day event which is set to bowl
off next Monday at the Vivian Richards Cricket Sta-
"We will have everything in place for the players
and officials and fans from all over the world to enjoy
the experience at the Sir Vivian Richards Cricket
Grounds," Rodney told Observer Radio here.
"We are a hospitable people and we love our cricket
and we are serious about setting high standards as
we host this match."
Rodney, a former Antigua and Barbuda and Leeward
Islands coach, backed the idea that Monday, the
opening day of the Test, be declared a public holiday.
Reportedly, there have been discussions at gov-
ernment levels to facilitate this move but authorities
here are yet to decide.
"I don t think it s a bad call. With the England
Test series, giving Monday off wont be considered
a waste day or being unproductive. It would give the
local people a chance to go out and support their
team," Rodney contended.
"The ground is in lovely shape. We have a pro-
fessional team working to get things right for the
start of the match. The Antigua and Barbuda Cricket
Association is doing all it can, with the assistance
of the Government and the people to make sure we
have a great start to the series."
Original estimates suggest between 2,000 and
3,000 visitors, most of them from the United King-
dom, are expected on the island for the match.

the Test match between West Indies and England
had to be abandoned after just ten deliveries because
of a sandy outfield at Vivian Richards Cricket Ground,

The game was subsequently moved to

"We urge the people to come out and
support the Test match in Antigua and the
West Indies team. We want to back the
team," he said.
"The best day would be the Monday --
the opening day of the match and the start
of the series. It would be a chance to give
that absolute momentum and full support
to our team and tell them go out and beat
up the English team ." (CMC)
