Trinidad & Tobago Newsday article.

Port of Spain, Trinidad - Cricket fans attending the Second Test between the West Indies and New Zealand at the Queen’s Park Oval in St Clair this week need not worry about missing out on the 2014 World Cup action currently taking place in Brazil.

The Trinidad and Tobago Cricket Board (TTCB) has reassured football afficionados that a few large televisions will be set up in the Carib Beer Stand so that they can be kept up to date even while watching the cricket action live. 

In today’s World Cup action Germany play Portugal at noon, Iran tackle Nigeria at 3 pm and at 6 pm, Ghana come up against the USA. 

However, at the Oval, the struggling West Indies will be hoping to hit back strongly and square the three-match rubber after the touring Kiwis won the First Test in four days at Sabina Park in Jamaica last week. 

The TTCB are reminding fans to adhere to all the regulations concerning the venue with respect to the size of coolers allowed (only 24x24) and the items that can be brought into the stands, for example no glass bottles, weapons etcetera. 

The TTCB has also given the assurance that all arrangements will be put in place to ensure an enjoyable experience for cricket and football fans during the entirety of the Second Test. 

Tickets for the match are still available daily at the box office of the TTCB Office at the Oval. Telephone enquiries can be made at 628-9787.
