Guyana - Sir Vivian Richards Stadium at Antigua has been re-approved for international cricket following a 12-month suspension.

The International Cricket Council says the ground has passed an inspection by match referee Geoff Crowe.

In February last year, a West Indies vs. England Test match was abandoned after just 10 balls because the outfield at the Antigua venue was considered unfit for play.

"We are content that the ground is now of sufficient standard to host international cricket. The remedial work has been carried out and Mr. Crowe has carried out a full inspection, during which he found the ground to be of a good standard," ICC spokesperson David Richardson said in a statement on Wednesday.
