Twenty20 can put smile back on Caribbean faces
After the fiasco of the World Cup comes the chance for some serious rebuilding in the land of calypso cricket, writes Vic Marks on his blog in the Observer. Now is the time to claw back some credibility in the Caribbean.
In Guyana, St Lucia and Barbados there is scope for some sort of redemption after the debacle of that World Cup. The tournament can work there; the stands can be filled, though it remains a problem that the stadium in Guyana is in the hinterland of the city of Georgetown; it takes some reaching for the locals. In St Lucia there is a shortage of locals. In Barbados there should be no problem, though it would help if West Indies became contenders for the trophy.
