Kensington Oval to host Tri Nation night cricket

History will be created in the Caribbean when all ten matches in the upcoming Tri Nation One-Day International Series will be day/night matches. This is the first time all matches in a series will be contested under lights.

 The West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) announced today that the games, featuring West Indies, South Africa and Australia, will start at 1 p.m. The first innings will be played in daylight from 1p.m. to 4:30 p.m. and the second half will be played from 5:15 p.m. to 8:45 p.m.

The Tri Series starts in at the Guyana National Stadium (June 3-7), then moves to Warner Park, St Kitts (June 11-15); and concludes at Kensington Oval, Barbados (June 19-26).

“This is a major series with three very attractive teams featuring some of the world’s best players. They are accustomed to playing under lights all over the world so we look forward to some very entertaining cricket,” said the WICB’s Cricket Operations Manager Roland Holder.

“We looked at ways to enhance the appeal and the spectator experience and it is accepted that fans like the day/night matches. I’m sure we will have a win-win situation for players and fans and everyone will enjoy the afternoon start and the finish under lights.”
