The West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) is said to be pleased with the state of preparations for the next staging of the Caribbean Super50, which is set for Trinidad in January.

WICB president Dave Cameron was in Port of Spain over the weekend and is reported to have met with officials of the Trinidad and Tobago Cricket Board (TTCB), and the Ministry of Tourism.

WICB director Baldath Mahabir said Cameron left the meetings pleased with the progress thus far.

The Caribbean Super 50 will be played in Trinidad for the next three years and will be sponsored by Trinidad and Tobago’s ministry of Tourism in an effort to showcase T&T as a sport tourism destination.

The TTCB, which initiated talks with the ministry of Tourism, is acting as caretakers until the WICB puts a committee in place for the tournament.

Windward Islands are the defending champions of the regional Super50 after defeating Combined Campuses and Colleges (CCC) by nine wickets in the finals at Kensington Over earlier this year.
