KINGSTON, December 7 – Jamaican first class players have had to car pool to go back to hotel following day three of the WICB Professional now on across the region. Jamaica is hosting at Sabina Park in Kingston.
Two sets of players were seen entering personal cars and upon inquiry we were told that a team bus has only been provided for the visiting Leeward Islands team.
A few concerned fans asked some more questions and we were reliably informed that this is happening for the second day in a row. The visiting team had access to a JUTC bus.
A director of the Jamaica Cricket Association (JCA) who has asked not to be named has expressed “embarrassment at the situation and is hoping that the situation be adjusted in time for the final day…Monday.
“I am also concerned about the safety of the players,” the director commented and “this should not happen,” he said.
Only two days ago, with just over a year in office the JCA released a four-page list of achievements.
Jamaica needs 36 runs with six wickets in hand in search of a third win.The Leeward Islands Hurricanes made 313 all out to hand Jamaica a 195-run chase.
Thomas, Campbell, Mitchell went reasonably cheap, but captain Tamar Lambert had a good knock of 45 to balance his team’s chances at a comeback. David Bernard Jr and John Campbell took the score to 160-4 in 46 overs. Campbell 63* & Bernard 33* were the not out batsmen for the home team.
