Cricket…lovely cricket! is the national sport of Barbados and the West Indies. Thousands of Barbadians, other West Indians and visitors flock to world-class matches at Kensington Oval.  Therefore, to watch powerful batsmen and towering fast bowlers in action.

Barbados is one of the international capitals of cricket and always contributes a large contingent to the West Indies team.

Most importantly at the end of the match join in the joyous celebrations that follow!
