Up to late Monday there was no update from the Government, but all indications are that Jamaica will not host games at the International Cricket Council (ICC) Twenty20 (T20) World Cup set for the Caribbean and the United States next year.

Jamaica Cricket Association (JCA) Vice-President Dr Donovan Bennett confirmed that the country was not among the host venues and said he believes the Government had no intention to bid despite making statements to the contrary last week.

"Jamaica is not one of them [the venues] because no bid was received from Jamaica," he told the Jamaica Observer when contacted Monday afternoon.

"It's quite obvious that the Government had no intention of bidding because this thing has been going on for about 10 or 12 weeks. [There has been] nothing at all, no response from the Government," Bennett said.

If you want to see how seriously these overpaid, money-grabbing, not too bright leaders of Jamaica run things, just look at the state of the rotting, broken down goat pen in Trelawny once known as the Trelawny Stadium. These people would rather let this facility rot than allow it to remain useful and functional as it keeps reminding them that it was built by the government of the other party. That's the height of these people's thinking. These people have calculated and decided they won't be able to fill their pockets or get some political benefit. So, you're waiting in vain for them to bid.
