A cricket fan from Barbados has won a competition to name the mascot for the Caribbean Premier league, CPL,  which starts next month.



David Ross’s idea of naming the CPL mascot Bouncer has been accepted by the organisers following a social media competition.



Bouncer was selected from a shortlist of five after officials sifted through hundreds of submissions from facebook and twitter fans.



Ross will receive VIP tickets for the three matches being held in Barbados, and a brand new Samsung Galaxy S3 mini, courtesy of CPL sponsor, Digicel.



Bouncer will hand over the new smartphone to David at the opening ceremony which he will attend with his family.



The first ever Caribbean Premiere League begins on Tuesday July 30 with 24 matches played across 6 Caribbean countries.
