An official of the St Lucia Blind Welfare Association (SLBWA) said when weekend rains made play impossible, some of the cricketers went on various outings.

It was disclosed that Sandiford was at a beach to the north of here when he encountered difficulty while in the water.

He was taken to shore and CPR was administered.

However, Sandiford died while on his way to hospital via ambulance.

Cricketers and officials who are here for the tournament have expressed shock at the death, describing him as a very outgoing individual.

They attended a debriefing session Saturday conducted by Clinical Psychologist Dr Franklin Bray.

    Having a lot written content do you get any issues of plagiarism violation? My blog has a lot of unique material I’ve created myself or outsourced but it appears a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my permission. Do you know any methods to help prevent content from being stolen? I’d genuinely appreciate it.
