A match between a Brian Lara eleven and a Sachin Tendulkar eleven will open the Brian Lara Stadium in Tarouba on Saturday May 13th.
Sport Minister Darryl Smith made the announcement at today's post-Cabinet media conference.
Smith said the ministry has been working closely with Lara on the opening.
He said the match will be broadcast across the world and will include local, regional and international cricketers.
Several tests games are being conducted before the Urban Development Company of Trinidad and Tobago (Udecott) officially hands the facility over to the Ministry of Sport.
