Dominica pull out of hosting T20 World Cup games


Agency :
The Caribbean nation of Dominica has withdrawn from the hosting of games at next year’s T20 Cricket World Cup, the country’s sports ministry said on Thursday.
Dominica is one of seven Caribbean countries that were given games for the June tournament by the International Cricket Council (ICC) in September.
Matches will also be held in New York, Florida and Texas in the United States, the first time a major ICC event has been held in the country.
But Dominica’s sports ministry said “in the best interest of all” that it withdraws. “The implementation timelines submitted by the various contractors revealed that it would not be possible to complete these works within the stipulated timeframe before the commencement of the tournament,” the ministry said in a press release.
