Really !!!
What have they contributed to Guyana???
Sure they made Guyanese feel proud but they have contributed nothing economically ..
Providence is just fine.. and if some big conglomerate want to pay millions for the naming rights for a few years say
like Exxon .. so be it..
You want another Darren Dammy stadium ...or Brian Lara .. please

Their cricketing exploits alone deserve that much.

I can also argue that they contributed economically in tandem.

You have to remember not so long ago we couldn’t afford a new stadium until mother India stepped in and made Providence happen.

They’re not stupid.
They’ve consistently done more to appease PNC voters, enough to make that party obsolete. They became APNU holding on by a thread.

They have done nothing to enhance Guyana ...

It’s a NATIONAL STADIUM not just for cricket ..
In addition... not many young Guyanese can identify with the names you mention .... only old timers...
It’s not my call but readily admit to the present name of the stadium and stands

National identifies with all .. and no one can claim bias or politics ..

No no you can attack me ,., I am a big boy..lol


Anyway we are talking in terms of the cricketers and their enhancement to the economy of Guyana versus their contribution to uplifting the worldwide attention to Guyana as a country that produce or produces quality cricketers
Freddie served as a minister at one time..the rest went abroad and returned occasionally and when they did what did they do ??
The last thing you guys ( as I only visit) need now is a stirring of perceived biasness..
So for the sake of sanity and peace stick with National .. and North South etc

ok so it boils down to economic impact

that i will argue is a very narrow view of impact

I really don’t understand the concern of bias.

BTW many youngsters will recognize the name Viv Richards why won’t they know who Lloyd and RBK are.

The reason for naming a stadium is to keep these names in the cricketing convo just so they don’t fade away.

No need to argue ... on impact , enhancement or contribution ... everyone has a different set of eyes ..
Shiv drive is ????
Should not had been in Georgetown but a recognition to his village would had made more sense ...
Just so you understand my thinking... a street was endorsed to be given our name ... it was voted down by my parents ... and it made sense .
