Providence: The tussle between the West Indies board and the Guyana government has put the Providence Test against Australia in doubt. The WICB shifted the first four rounds of the domestic first-class tournament out of Guyana and said that a call on the Test, scheduled for late April, will be taken later.
The decisions come after the executive committee of the WICB's board of directors had a teleconference on Saturday evening to try and resolve the impasse surrounding Guyana cricket.
Earlier this month, the Guyana Cricket Board (GCB) was locked out of its premises by the Guyana government, which appointed an Interim Management Committee (IMC) headed by Clive Lloyd to govern the sport in the country because the July 2011 GCB elections were being disputed. The WICB refused to recognise the IMC, and the stalemate, it was feared, would prevent Guyana from competing in the Caribbean T20 earlier this month, though that did not happen.
