T&T to host Super50 competition
The Guardian Newspaper in Trinidad is reporting that Trinidad and Tobago has been selected as the venue to contest the Regional Super 50 tournament in January next year.
The competition, played alongside the Regional First Class series last year, will now be staged separately as a ‘Super Series’; the Guardian reported citing a source close to the West Indies Cricket Board, WICB.
The newspaper did not name the source but disclosed that the decision to stage the Regional Super 50 separately was based on the fact that the WICB was no longer hosting the regional Twenty20 tournament.
It Is believed that the Trinidad and Tobago Cricket Board has been able to secure sponsorship for the series swaying the WICB to send the tournament to T&T.
The T&T Cricket Board is reported to be finalising a deal with a government body to take care of the funding of the tournament and matches will be played at the Queen’s Park Oval.
Most of the regional stars are expected to be available for the series, since the tournament will be played at the end of the West Indies tour to New Zealand later this year and ending in the first week of January.
