Cricket! Lovely Cricket! Both matches at Providence sold out!

Cricket lovers at the National Stadium, Providence

As Guyana hosts the first One Day International in the 2009 Digicel Series which commenced at 09:30 hrs this morning, both matches scheduled to be played at the National Stadium, Providence have been reported sold out and NCN is currently carrying the first of such live!

We have been keeping a close eye on the proceedings and are noticing a steady crowd build up even though it is moving at a snail's pace due in part to the security measures implemented. Authorities are keen on security, especially in light of what took place in Pakistan recently.

We have also noticed an influx of foreigners, particularly overseas based Guyanese who arrived for these two matches.
Many that spoke to us expressed shock and dismay at Guyana's rapid progression, particularly in the area of infrastructural development as they have been fed information that suggested otherwise!

Just imagine that it took us 3 hours to travel from Georgetown to Providence due to the rigid security measures implemented and large turn out.
