Roseau (Dominica), June 3 (IANS) The visiting Australian Cricket team has donated a quantity of cricket gear and equipment to Dominica’s original inhabitants, the Kalinago people.

“So it’s nice that the support crew brought some equipment over for them which will help them out and continue to grow their love of the game. It is really nice to meet them and spend some time with them.”

The Australian cricket team will take on the West Indies in the first test of the 2015 Home Series at the Windsor Park Sports Stadium in Roseau from Wednesday.
