ICC officials are now going through the final visit to the host venues ahead of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2007. The world cup cricket will be started from 11 March. Now the whole cricket world is eagerly waiting for the coming tournament. The officials are now investigating the stadiums and the facilities of the stadiums.

News Day reported:

A team from the International Cricket Council (ICC) led by the Venues and Development Director Don Lockerbie will visit three venues.

Also in the team are officials in charge of pitches, outfields, venue development and cricket operation.

Among the other specialists involved are the Venue Curator, Venue Manager, Ground Personnel and other ground officials.

Between approximately 1.30 and 3.30 pm the ICC team will visit the refurbished Queen’s Park Oval in Port of Spain where group matches in the World Cup will be staged.

Trinidad and Tobago will host the Brown Package at the Oval featuring India, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh and Bermuda. Hosts West Indies are in Group “A” which will be played in Jamaica.

Later, the St Mary College Ground and the King George V Park both on Serpentine Road, St Clair will be inspected between 3.30 and 4.30 pm.

The good side of such visits is that in the way the problems and the lacking existed in a venue will be brought into out and the organizers will be able to work out the problems. I hope that the world will have a successful World Cup Cricket tournament.
