‘We make most money when Team India comes to play, it’s our biggest income stream’: Jamaica Cricket president

After receiving 100 cricket kits from India President Ram Nath Kovind, Wilfred Billy Heaven, president of the Jamaica Cricket Association, expressed gratitude, saying it is a tremendous event for his country. According to Heaven, when Team India visits the West Indies and plays at Sabina Park, Jamaica Cricket earns the most. “When India plays in the Caribbean, the matches between India and the West Indies draw a strong crowd. We make the most money when Team India comes to play in the Caribbean, and it’s our main source of revenue at Cricket West Indies “According to the ANI news agency, heaven exists. President Ram Nath Kovind, who is visiting Jamaica for four days, gave the Jamaica Cricket Association a symbolic gift of cricket kits as a sign of the two countries’ cricket cooperation.


“This is a fantastic opportunity for me and the Jamaican cricket community. As the Jamaica Cricket Association, we are ecstatic that this donation comes from India, a country recognised for its massive cricket. We’ll get 100 kits, which is rather a lot. According to plans, half of them will be donated to high schools “Heaven had spoken.


The president of Jamaica Cricket went on to remark that this will only improve the relationship between the two countries because many young cricket fans in Jamaica, such as Andre Russell and Chris Gayle, desire to play in the IPL.


“Students here want to play, but the cost is exorbitant. Following that, a significant contingent of young Jamaican cricketers may arrive. They will compete in the Indian Premier League, which currently contains 17 Caribbean players, four of them are from Jamaica. This will strengthen India’s ties with Jamaica “he declared. According to the Jamaican cricket president, a cricket development programme has been established to inspire future cricketers.

“We’ve created a cricket development programme for young people. Many young men are stepping up to help us. In the coming years, several pacers and batters from Jamaica will be recruited “he commented
