PHILIPSBURG, Sint Maarten – Minister of Tourism & Economic Affairs Hon. Franklin Meyers says the island's premiere show the St. Maarten Heineken Regatta, will be on ESPN Caribbean this Saturday.

PHILIPSBURG - The Board of Cricket St. Maarten will hold a General Meeting on Thursday 17th May beginning at 10:00am at NAGICO’s conference room.

 

ENGLAND - Darren Sammy, the West Indies captain, has said he has 14 fit men available for selection for the four-day tour match against the England Lions, starting on Thursday.

Marlon Samuels flew in from India, where he was playing in the IPL, on Tuesday and Assad Fudadin, who was delayed due to visa issues, joined the squad on Wednesday morning.

According to a West Indies spokesperson, Narsingh Deonarine, the only missing member from the 15-man Test squad, was due to arrive on Thursday, but would not be available for selection in the Lions match.

PHILIPSBURG - Lots going on this weekend! From our annual Family Fun Run on Friday afternoon in Mullet Bay to the Kids Triathlon at Le Galion on Sunday, and a Sunset Kayak Paddle in between on Saturday, there is lots to keep you fit and healthy.

GREAT BAY, Sint Maarten (DCOMM) – Prime Minister Hon. Sarah Wescot Williams attended on Saturday the International Field & Track Meet at the Alberic Richards Stadium in Sandy Ground, that brought together over 170 athletes and participants.

Great Bay – "Two world records and one French national record were set right here on St. Martin on Saturday, May 5, but when we open the papers today, we don't find nothing about this. Where is the love on this island for sports? This has to change."

WEST INDIES - It was surely fitting that the West Indies tour should start with a depleted day's play and under a cloud.

In bitterly cold and damp conditions, the tourists' batsmen enjoyed - or experienced, anyway - a brief snatch of cricket before rain returned and, for the second day in succession, play was abandoned mercifully early. It means the West Indies now have only five days cricket in which to acclimatise to English conditions ahead of the Test series.

ENGLAND - Somerset will not be taking legal action against Chris Gayle for breach of contract.

WESTINDIES - West Indies have openly embraced the return of their premier batsman Chris Gayle, who on Wednesday committed to making himself available for selection for the one-day leg of their tour of England.

In doing so he decided to forsake his contract with Somerset as an overseas player for the Friends Life t20 and Ottis Gibson, the West Indies coach, said if Gayle was available, he would "definitely be picked".

WEST INDIES - Chris Gayle's return to the West Indies squad is likely to be delayed after fresh doubts emerged over his availability for the ODI leg of the upcoming England tour, pouring cold water over the hard-earned resolution reached between him and the West Indies Cricket Board by CARICOM (the Caribbean Community).
