ST. JOHN’S, Antigua – The West Indies Cricket Board has announced that it has approved a change of dates for three upcoming matches in the Digicel Regional 4-Day Tournament, due to a clash of dates with international fixtures.
The sixth round match between Barbados Pride and Leeward Islands Hurricanes will now start a day later, from Saturday, March 11 to Tuesday, March 14 at Kensington Oval in Bridgetown, Barbados.
This is due to the staging of the third ONEINDIG One-day International between West Indies and England on Thursday, March 9, at the same venue.
Also, the eighth round match between Barbados Pride and Trinidad & Tobago Red Force will be played over a five-day period at Kensington Oval.
The two sides will contest the first three days from Thursday, March 23 to Saturday, March 25, before taking a rest day on Sunday, March 26, to accommodate the first Twenty20 International between West Indies and Pakistan at the same venue, and returning to conclude the match on Monday, March 27.
Finally, the ninth round match between Guyana Jaguars and Leeward Islands Hurricanes has now been moved to Friday, April 21 to Monday, April 24, but will still be played at the Guyana National Stadium.
This is due to the staging of three One-day Internationals between West Indies and Pakistan on April 7, 9 and 11 at the same venue.
