India to help install floodlights at Sabina Park

38Kingston (Jamaica), April 2 (IANS/CMC) Jamaica and India are to sign an agreement to have flood lights installed at Sabina Park.

The news comes after months of discussions between several government ministries and entities and officials from the Indian High Commission, CMC quoted a report from The Jamaica Observer.

Jamaica Cricket Association (JCA) president Wilford Heaven declined to reveal details but has said an announcement will be made Tuesday.

Indian High Commissioner Pratap Singh and Jamaica’s Prime Minister Portia Simpson Miller are expected to be there at the time of the announcement at Sabina Park here.

The lack of lights at Sabina Park, one of the Caribbean’s leading cricket venues, has been a talking point for long.

The matter was brought into sharp focus during the inaugural Caribbean Premier League (CPL) Twenty20 (T20) last year.

Ahead of that tournament, the then JCA administration announced that Sabina Park Holdings, the entity which manages the venue and its facilities, had a partnership with a financier and contractor for the project.

However, three weeks later, the deal collapsed after a breakdown in talks between Sabina Park Holdings, its affiliates and the would-be contractor.
