As the holder of the record of the fastest test century, Sir Vivian deserves no disrepute to his name.
Apparently, the grounds is more like a beach…
To give you an idea of what the ground is like, here’s Cricinfo’s Andrew McGlashan with a summary…Antigua is famous for its 365 beaches, but there is enough sand on the outfield of the Sir Vivian Richards stadium to ensure they have one extra for a leap year.
Apparently, there’s a lot of sand on the outfield as well as near the popping crease.
Players are warned to slide while fielding at their own risk…
The match so far has only lasted 10 balls….
In all probabilities, the match will be cancelled. I highly doubt that they could possibly rectify the situation so quickly….
Perhaps, they could re-start the 2nd test on Monday and have it at the old Antigua Recreation Ground, which is not too far away….
I’ve never seen the ground first-hand, but, for one thing, I know that it’s Brian Lara’s Colosseum.
Let’s see how things pan out…
PS – I might not be regularly posting till Monday morning because I have some problems with my boss…need to get them sorted out! 😦
Wish me luck!
