St. Lucia and T & T to host Caribbean T20
ST. JOHN’S, Antigua, CMC – Trinidad and Tobago and St Lucia will host the fourth edition of the Caribbean Twenty20 tournament, the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) has announced
T&T will host the first part of the preliminary round, at the Queen’s Park Oval in Port of Spain, while Beausejour Cricket Ground will be the venue for the second part of the preliminary round, the playoffs and the final.
It will be the first time Caribbean T20 will be played in St Lucia.
The T&T bid was specifically for the preliminary round of the premier regional tournament, scheduled to be hosted from January 6-21, 2013.
The Twin Republic and St. Lucia were given the nod ahead of Barbados and Antigua after a review of the four bids by the WICB International Fixtures Committee.
T&T hosted the latter preliminary stage, the semifinals and final of the inaugural Caribbean T20, in 2010.
T&T had originally won the bid to host in 2012, but the tournament was moved to Antigua after scheduling conflicts arose.
