Is it a case that the two positions are correct? Is it a case that one is correct? Is it a combo of the two? At BU we say take your pick!
DLP Version of CWC 2007
As the ICC Cricket World Cup winds down in the Caribbean and the various persons try to find cover for the appalling disaster that it really was. The media will not assist us in any way. They too will become caught up in the grand finale, which will mostly be a success. Barbados learned from the mistakes all around and is trying to portray to the world we did it better. There is nothing wrong with that, but we have to join the others in the Caribbean for a thorough post-Morten of this event. Surely no amount of celebration after the event in one territory can wipe away the shame, embarrassment, scandal and disgrace that CWC brought to the Caribbean. The citizens of Barbados and the wider Caribbean must demand a transparent and authentic report of CWC. Anything less will be a tragedy.
BLP VERSION OF CWC 2007
From the Nation
Kensington Oval was packed – barely a spare seat could be seen in the stands as 22 000 people came out to see Lara for the very last time.
Full house at the Oval a World Class facility.
Surely this is what the LOC had in mind when they redeveloped the Oval. They must be congratulated.
One can only imagine what the semi-final and final will be like.
Many Hoteliers reporting increased occupancy.
Those hoteliers who stuck to the contract were fully paid even if the Indians and Pakistanis did not come and they now have the opportunity to sell those rooms again. They have done very well.
The vendors and Taxi drivers are reporting good bussiness over the last few days and we have not even got into the semi-final and finals week.
Restaurants ,clubs and attractions having increased sales.
