The Windsor Park Sports Stadium in Dominica will once again see international cricket action for the first time since Hurricane Maria devastated the island in 2017.
The stadium will host New Zealand in the third Colonial Medical Insurance ODI and the first T20I in July this year.
Officials from Cricket West Indies (CWI) were in Dominica recently to meet with officials in preparation for the upcoming matches
“We toured the Windsor Park Stadium, checked on the medical facilities on the island and the hotels including the new Kempinski Hotel and from our inspection, everything seems to be on track for the hosting of international cricket which is great news,” Johnny Graves, Chief Executive of CWI, said.
He said the matches is a good way to show that Dominica’s tourism sector is open.
“It is also a great platform to also show the millions and millions of cricket fans across the world that Dominica tourism is open, that Dominica is open for business and investment…international will be back in Dominicam” he stated.
The stadium was heavily damaged by Maria but renovation works has been ongoing.
The two matches in Dominica will be held on July 13 and 15.
