Friday, March 11, 2005 - As part of its programme of preparation to host matches in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2007, Saint Lucia’s Local Organising Committee, Cricket World Cup Saint Lucia Inc. (CWCSL), will host Dr. Ali Bacher from 11 to 13 April, 2005.

Dr. Ali Bacher is a former test cricket captain of South Africa, who captained South Africa during its 4-0 whitewash of Australia in 1969-70. However, it is as a cricket administrator that he has made his most memorable mark. He presided over the administration of South African cricket during its entry back into the world arena in the post-apartheid era, and as Managing Director of the United Cricket Board of South Africa ensured that equal opportunities were provided for cricketers of all races. His crowning achievement, however, was as the mastermind and head of the successful ICC Cricket World Cup 2003 South Africa organizing committee.

While in Saint Lucia, Dr. Bacher will meet with members of the business sector, the hotel and tourism sector, the Government of Saint Lucia, and the Board of Directors and staff of CWCSL Inc, in addition to an engagement with the local media. During these meetings, Dr. Bacher will share with the various agencies the experiences of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2003 in South Africa, and discuss the challenges and opportunities that come with hosting the third largest sporting event in the world.

As part of a collaboration with the Faculty of Social Sciences of the St. Augustine Campus of the University of the West Indies, Dr. Bacher will also meet with the staff and students of the Sir Arthur Lewis Community College.

Dr. Bacher will be accompanied to Saint Lucia from Trinidad by the Dean of the Faculty of Social Sciences, Dr. Hamid Ghany.
