    'Up until the construction of the Beausejour Cricket Ground by the Government of Saint Lucia, the game seemed to be on the decline in Saint Lucia. However this development, together with the successful hosting of several international matches has once again regenerated interest. Several initiatives introduced during those matches have put Saint Lucia on a good footing in the preparation for the ICC Cricket World Cup 2007. Also the positive reaction from the cricketing world has assisted in galvanizing support for the event. This has also given rise to some competition between the host territories which can only augur well for the success of the event.'

    'Generally, the cricket world cup committee has done a lot in terms of education and sensitizing the public. There is a lot of debate and involvement at the community level which indicates that information is being filtered down to the grass roots level. A lot of infrastructural work is being done to facilitate easier movement of persons, as well as to aid in the general organization of world cup.

    I am hoping that as a result of St. Lucia hosting cricket world cup, particularly as we have top teams like New Zealand and England, this will serve as an impetus to motivate more young persons to get involved in cricket, after being exposed to cricket at such a high level. As it stands now, I am dissatisfied with the level of commitment and participation of cricket in St. Lucia, and hope that cricket world cup will bring about a resurging interest in the sport.'

    'The involvement of the government and the people of St. Lucia in cricket is paramount to the development of the sport in the region, since cricket is seen as the people’s sport, the uniting force which transcends all boundaries in the Caribbean.

    St. Lucia's preparation for Cricket World Cup 2007 is excellent as there seems to be a lot of proactive planning and foresight by the government and relevant authorities, which gave us a competitive advantage, which was complemented by public sensitization via the St. Lucian media.'
