Reduced numbers hurt BCL


There has been an alarming decline in the number of clubs competing in the Barbados Cricket League (BCL) competitions over the past 20 years.

Just 29 teams are taking part in the 2019 domestic season, a marked decrease from the 66 that took to the field in 1999.

And president Glyne St Hill says it is time for them and the Barbados Cricket Association (BCA) to have a serious talk about a merger of the two entities.

“I had mentioned that to the BCA president [Conde Riley] and we were supposed to have a meeting now for the whole year and it hasn’t come off yet. I plan to raise it at the (BCA) annual general meeting next Wednesday, because it makes no sense saying we can’t come to the BCA, but yet still you are taking away two to three of my teams every year,” he told Sunsport.
