Violence in Jamaica forces SA ODI be moved to Trinidad

May 27, 2010 10:24 IST

The violent situation in Jamaica has led cricket authorities to move a One-day international and the first Test against South Africa to Trinidad, the West Indies Cricket Board said on Wednesday.

The fifth One-Day International on June 3 and the opening test from June 10, both scheduled for Sabina Park in the Jamaican capital Kingston, will now be held at the Queen's Park Oval in Port of Spain, Trinidad.

Kingston has suffered four days of violence with security forces fighting armed supporters of a fugitive alleged drug lord in clashes that have killed nearly 50 people.
