Cricket World Cup 2007 Barbados – No Rooms Left?

Is it hype or reality?

The man in charge of organising the 2007 Cricket World Cup has admitted some fans could have nowhere to stay. (link here)
So says the BBC, anyway…

“We will never satisfy 100% of that demand – no world games can,” said tournament director Chris Dehring.

“But we will certainly be satisfying a reasonable amount. I would advise everybody to book early.”

So… truly no rooms or marketing hype? What say all?

Thanks to our sweetheart Jane for the tip! Hey… you wouldn’t be not married by any chance, would you?

Clive 😉
