ESPN Caribbean to air CT20

ESPN Caribbean will air the annual Caribbean Twenty20 cricket tournament throughout the West Indies beginning this Sunday January 6 with Trinidad & Tobago, who won 2012’s tournament, coming up against Jamaica at the Queen’s Park Oval, in Port-of-Spain, a release from the network said yesterday.

20130104timesThe releases noted that the tournament will feature some of the top players in the game, including those that helped lead the West Indies to the T20 World Cup title. The release said that ESPN Caribbean will bring fans live or as-live coverage of every game until the final on Sunday January 20th in St. Lucia on the ESPN Caribbean network and on ESPN Play, its regional broadband service.

“Through television and digital media around the world, ESPN has a long association with cricket that we will continue to enhance and expand. The Caribbean T20 is a great addition to our schedule,” Michael Walters, VP programming, ESPN International, said in the release.

The 2013 tournament has a new format, with each team playing six group-stage matches, up from four. The seven regional teams competing will play each other once and the team with the most points at the end of the group-stage stage will automatically qualify for the final. The other finalist will be decided after a play-off between the second and the third-placed teams in the group-stage, the release noted.
