GAINING smooth access to Kensington Oval is proving to be a vexing issue for former West Indies players.

Pedro Collins says that access to the Oval may now be an issue for him after he was told by a top Barbados Cricket Association (BCA) official that the pass he has from the Cricket Legends of Barbados may no longer be valid…

“I don’t want anyone to embarrass me. I am going to buy a ticket. On Tuesday, I was told by a BCA official that the pass I have from the Cricket Legends of Barbados was no longer valid, but it was never made clear to me why.

I know what Dessie (Desmond Haynes) went through and I am taking no chances. Those who have represented the West Indies deserved to be treated better,” said Collins..

When contacted yesterday for a comment on the Haynes issue, acting cricket operations manager of the BCA, Roxanne Forte, without going into details, stressed the importance of having either a ticket or accreditation.

“If you want access to Kensington Oval, you must have either a ticket or accreditation. I don’t know what Haynes’ issue was. Sir Garfield Sobers is a National Hero and he waits till he is let in,” Forte said.

Surprisingly, chief executive officer Rollins Howard is still in the dark on an incident that took place since Sunday.

“I can’t comment because I don’t know anything about the issue. I can’t say what will be done because I don’t know what the issue is…”
