The power and dominance of the celebrated Caribbean ladies was evident, when they rolled over India, yesterday Thursday, in Dominica, to take an unassailable lead, 3-1, in the T20 version of the series, which actually culminates here in Basseterre, at the Warner Park Stadium, on Monday 27th February, starting at 2:00pm.
India, however, will be hoping to redeem themselves, in the three game One Day International Series, that will run, at Warner Park, on Wednesday 29th February, Friday 2nd March and Sunday 4th March, starting daily at 10:00am.
According to the Event Manager for the series Mr. Val Henry, the Organizing Committee, (OC), which is a special entity of the St. Kitts Cricket Association, SKCA, has just about completed all required arrangements for the West Indies Cricket Board, (WICB), sponsored event.
Henry said that Warner Park has become a favourite ground for the West Indies, who still have many fond memories from their triumphant victory over England, when the two teams met in a similar series in 2009.
At that time scores of cricket fans came out to support the women, providing perhaps the impetus for the strong drive and determination to perform well, to defend the honour of West Indies cricket and the nations represented under the umbrella of the WICB.
The Event Manager also explained that the SKCA has decided not to charge an entrance fee, thereby giving fans the full opportunity to attend the matches and support the teams.
This time around, however, the spectators are expected to include large numbers of Indian nationals who are students at various universities on the island, therefore giving both sides somewhat of a fan base to rely on, for support and encouragement.
While in St. Kitts, the teams are also expected to be hosted at various social events that have been organized for them, said Henry.
