The 2007 ICC Cricket World Cup will be hosted by the West Indies from March 13 to April 28, 2007. There will be a total of fifty one matches played in the 2007 ICC Cricket World Cup, which is three matches less than the 2003 ICC Cricket World Cup, despite the two extra teams taking part. It will be contested by 16 nations divided into 4 groups of 4 teams. The top two teams from each group will then compete in a "Super 8" format, similar to the previous "Super 6" format, from which the semi-finalists will be decided.

Jamaica (Greenfield Stadium, Trelawny) will host the Opening Ceremony on 11 March 2007.

WinkThe World Cup was awarded to the West Indies via the ICC's rotational policy. It's the first time the Cricket World Cup has been held in the Caribbean despite the fact that the West Indies cricket team have been the second most successful team in past World Cups.

The United States contingent lobbied toughly for its newly built cricket ground in Lauderhill, Florida, but the International Cricket Council decided to award all matches to Caribbean nations. Bids from Bermuda, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, and a second bid by Jamaica were also rejected.

Officials render update on progress
Saturday | February 17, 2007

TOP OFFICIALS of ICC Cricket World Cup West Indies 2007 Inc. have updated CARICOM leaders on the Caribbean's progress towards hosting ICC CWC 2007 next month.

CWC Chairman Kenneth Gordon and CWC managing director and CEO Chris Dehring met members of the CARICOM subcommittee on cricket last Sunday in St. Vincent and the Grenadines; the latter presenting a comprehensive report on the state of preparations across the region.

CEOs of the Guyana and St. Vincent and the Grenadines Local Organising Committees (LOCs) respectively, Karan Singh and Mike Findlay, also attended.

Ministers present

The meeting, which was chaired by Minister of State Delano Franklyn of Jamaica on behalf of the Prime Minister of Grenada, Keith Mitchell - who is chair of the subcommittee, was attended by Bharrat Jagdeo, president of Guyana, and the Prime Minister of St. Kitts and Nevis, Dr. Denzil L. Douglas. A number of ministers of sport from other CARICOM countries were also present.

Barbados' Deputy Prime Minister, Mia Mottley - who spearheads CARICOM's subcommittee on security for ICC CWC 2007 - brought those at the meeting up to date on the introduction of the Single Domestic Space and other security issues related to the tournament.

Subsequently on Tuesday, Gordon and Dehring met all CARICOM Heads of Government and held discussions on a range of matters related to both West Indies cricket and the Cricket World Cup.

Each Prime Minister was presented with an update on where his or her country stood and the issues which needed to be resolved if the region was to successfully host the tournament.

The Prime Ministers expressed their gratitude for the briefings and pledged to continue their full support. Direct lines of communications with the Prime Ministers, in the event of emergency situations during ICC CWC 2007, were also established.

Caribbean leaders thrilled with opening ceremony

Caribbean Community (CARICOM) leaders, who attended Sunday's official opening of the cricket World Cup here, say they were very pleased with the tournament's launch which highlighted the region's rich cultural heritage.

'It was fantastic, it was A-plus, it was just wonderful,' said CARICOM Secretary General Edwin Carrington.

'I feel like a little baby just born. I'm really excited,' added Grenada's Prime Minister Keith Mitchell.

The three-hour programme, which was beamed to a global television audience estimated at two billion, took the format of a cultural extravaganza that included fire blowers, drummers, stilt walkers, bamboo stick dancers and a major display of fireworks.

The event, which took place at the Trelawny Stadium, in northwestern Jamaica, also featured top Jamaican musical bands Third World, Sly and Robbie and Byron Lee and Dragonaires, as well as top regional entertainers such as David Rudder, Jimmy Cliff, Byron Lee, Machel Montano, Alison Hinds, Sean Paul and Beres Hammond.

Mitchell, who is the chairman of the CARICOM Prime Ministerial Sub-Committee in Cricket, said he was pleased with the overall standard of the presentation, adding that the Caribbean as a whole should be 'extremely proud'.

'I am proud of the way we have come together and put on this show to put the Caribbean in the face of the international community, so I am extremely proud of this,' he told the Caribbean Media Corporation (CMC).

Host Prime Minister Portia Simpson Miller and her St. Vincent and the Grenadines colleague Ralph Gonsalves also hailed the event as a symbol of regional integration.

'Anywhere you go in the world, I do not believe anyone could put on a more fantastic show that what happened here at Trelawny, Jamaica, where the region came together with one powerful voice demonstrating the strength, the character, the talent, everything of the Caribbean people,' said Simpson Miller, adding that for the tournament opening, the region 'went beyond the boundary'.

Gonsalves described the event as 'magnificent' and 'beautiful'.

'It was magnificent, I was so filled with joy I almost wanted to cry; you know the talent we have, the colour, the pageantry, the way everything was brought together.

'Regionalism, the internationalism with Lucky Dube and the Irish dancers, singers and the way in which all the countries in the region got involved in the event... it was simply beautiful,' Gonsalves added.

The World Cup got under way Tuesday with hosts West Indies beating Pakistan by 54 runs at the Sabina Park in the Jamaican capital. Eight other Caribbean nations will host matches during the tournament.

CARICOM Chairman lashes out at West Indies cricket team

West Indies cricket captain, Brian Lara.
Just about everyone seems to be venting their anger on the poorly performing West Indies cricket team which is in danger of missing out on the semi-finals of the world cup.

The latest person to have his say is CARICOM Chairman and Prime Minister of St. Vincent and the Grenadines, Dr. Ralph Gonsalves.

“There performance so far in the Super Eight has so far by common consensus has been supine and they, frankly speaking, have been a let down. I believe we have to speak about that,” Dr. Gonsalves.

“The team has played as if it has no commitment to the people of the region, to the Caribbean civilization and I am most disappointed. Clearly what we have seen cannot be the best that the region has to offer in this game where we have been champions for 15 years,”

“If you hadn’t seen it happening before you would have probably though they were trying to betray the West Indies and play an April’s Fools Day joke on the region,” he said.

He added that the governments in the region which has spent millions on hosting of World Cup Cricket had reason to expect better from the team.

International Cricket Council Chief Malcolm Speed Defends The Governing Body Against Widespread Criticism

Submitted by Rohit Bhandiye on Mon, 2007-04-09 05:11.

International Cricket Council (ICC) chief Malcolm Speed defended the governing body on Sunday against widespread criticism over poor turnout, security measures and high ticket prices at the World Cup.

"We are at the halfway mark in terms of matches played, very hopeful we can finish the World Cup in the manner we would expect with some great cricket being played where every match counts one way or the other," Speed told reporters on Sunday.

The event has been criticised by local fans and media for running for 47 days, featuring as many as 51 games and six associate teams.

Many have also complained about the absence of a Caribbean flavour due to the absence of crowds and conditions - since lifted - imposed for bringing in musical instruments into the ground.

"There is a Caribbean flavour about this match," Speed said in response to the criticism, referring to champions Australia playing England in the Super Eights which he attended.

"There also needs to be a world sporting event flavour," he said.

"We moved up a step from domestic bilateral cricket here, into the area of a major world sporting event."

The event has been criticised by local fans and media for running for 47 days, featuring as many as 51 games and six associate teams.

Speed said ICC had shown flexibility by easing conditions to encourage fans to bring in musical instruments with the permission of local organisers.

He dismissed criticism of weak teams at the World Cup.

"We've been criticised for many years for including Bangladesh in the top table of world cricket," he said.

"What they've done in the last couple of weeks is they have justified their existence."

"We expect each country will know its own economy, its own pricing."

"Hopefully we will come out of this event with 11 or 12 teams who have put some substance into cricket in their country.

"After the next round it will be 13 or 14 and it will gradually move on until we have a very solid base for cricket around the world."

The seven-week World Cup culminates in the final in Barbados on April 28.
