Officials Say Oval Will Be Ready

KENSINGTON OVAL was a hive of activity, yesterday. Attention was centred on the new Press Box and the Mitchie Hewitt Stand at the southern end of the ground.

Some cricket enthusiasts feel work is behind schedule; but officials have given the assurance that all will be ready for the Fifth Test between West Indies and England starting next week Thursday.

During the last two days, “bucket” seats were being installed in the upper level of the Mitchie Hewitt Stand which seems to be progressing well.

There is more concern over the Press Box and some members of the local media are not confident the facility will be completed for the start of this weekend’s match between Barbados and England.
