FIRST IT WAS TRINIDAD, then it was St Kitts’ turn. Let’s hope the third time will prove to be the charm for Barbados.
Given the spectacular response from Barbadians during the two previous editions of the Caribbean Premier League (CPL) T20 competition, don’t count out the possibility of Barbados hosting next year’s semi-finals or final in the region’s most lucrative cricket tournament.
That is the word from Mark Linehan, chief executive officer (CEO) of Digicel Barbados, who believes the island has as good a shot as any of being selected to host the CPL’s 2015 grand finale.
“The possibility is definitely there, but that is a decision which is made by the CPL, which runs an independent company,” Linehan said yesterday at a briefing at Lucky Horseshoe, Bagatelle, held to announce that Digicel had acquired majority ownership and control of the St Lucia-based International Media Content (IMC), parent company of regional sports broadcaster, SportsMax.
