In theory I would support the Windies holding the World Cup. But cricket authorities over there is so badly run these days that the Cup promises to be a joke and will harm the World Cup.

West Indies cricket needs to get itself sorted out or the sport will slip into obscurity. That is something I almost cannot believe after watching their dominance for years. Where did it all go wrong?

Maybe the WC might help turn things around for them. You can only live in hope.

Guyana's ground won't be completed on time for the Cup. They will have to move to the old ground. The Bourda Ground.

According to the bloggers most Carribean stadiums won't get finished in time. So they may well end up playing in the old, dodgy grounds.

The shame is, nobody is actually suprised by this. They wonder why they live in 3rd world countries too.

I couldnt care less about the "cricket" world cup itself but if even some of these venues are completed it would be of huge benefit to the west Indies cricket in the long term as they have hopelessly poor capacities especially for the England tour, where they should be able to massively increase their revenue in the future.
This makes the West Indies the right location.

Beautiful stadiums. Unfortunately i wont see the stadia myself, I have to work through that period

I love my cricket, and although this 'world cup' is nothing but money-making sponsor deals, I hope Aussies make it 3 in a row!!

Ha. If the ****'s are putting their WC hopes on 'hit-or-miss' Afridi, they need more depth.

Seriously, though I feel at least two teams from the sub-continent will make the SF. But Australia has undoubtedly the best depth in a squad, and the more depth in the squad the better chance of lifting the WC over the 2 months the tournament goes for.

Aussies have the World Cup in the bag. What will be interesting is who will be good enough to meet us in the final?

If they sent the Tasmanian state team we'd still win it.

World Cup stadia 'will be ready on time'


Chris Dehring: 'Full steam ahead'

Suggestions that some of the grounds scheduled to host matches during next year's World Cup will not be ready on time have been dismissed by Chris Dehring, the tournament's managing director and chief executive officer.

Concerns have grown after contractors at Sabina Park admitted that there were serious delays in the ground's rebuild, but Dehring said that it was "full steam ahead", adding that a contingency plan had been submitted to the ICC in case there were any last-minute problems.

"Everyone is moving forward as planned," he told reporters in Grenada. "Of course we have a back-up plan in place and it is currently being reviewed by the ICC. That plan will only be implemented if absolutely necessary. At present, there is no one country that is being earmarked to 'take' matches currently assigned to another host venue.

"If a decision were to be taken to relocate matches from one host venue to another, it could only be taken by the organisers. This is not a decision that can be made by anyone outside."

Dehring explained that it was "critical to the overall success of the tournament, at this time every country is expected to meet its obligation to host matches. Each host venue is working not only on the completion of their stadia but on all the other infrastructural elements required to support the hosting of the tournament.

"We have just over 300 days to go, including weekends and public holidays, and everyone concerned is working assiduously to ensure that no time is lost.

Dehring also said that a revised plan had now been submitted for Sabina Park which would ensure it was ready on time. Warner Park in St Kitts is almost finished, and work on the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium in Antigua is ahead of schedule. Guyana's Providence Stadium is also set to be ready ahead of the organisers' deadline.

It just struck me that some venues have 16 000 capacity, and some English grounds have similar capacities.

Does anyone know if the ICC has minimum seating requirements for world cup venues (like FIFA has for football 40 000) for cricket?
