Antigua and Barbuda – Sports

The national and main sport of Antigua and Barbuda is cricket. What else would it be really, as the people of this Island nation in the Caribbean just adore cricket? They are obsessed. There is a national cricket team, but also man islanders play cricket for leeward Islands and west Indies cricket teams. One of the country’s most famous cricketers is Sir Isaac Vivian Richards who was born in the capital city of saint John’s. Viv had a wonderful career in the sport, and there is even a stadium after him, called the Sir Vivian Richards stadium. The stadium was built for the 2007 cricket world cup.
