CPLT20: Not All That Glistens Is Gold

Cricket BallThe Caribbean Premier League T20 has been going the rounds in the region for the past three years attracting huge crowds on its way. It has been almost like the Pied Piper.

A few weeks ago, however, the highly respected cricket journalist, Tony Cozier wrote that the CPLT20 may not return to Barbados, and just over one week ago, an Australian director of the CPL, implored the people and the private sector of Jamaica to support it.

The reason it may not return to Barbados, according to Cozier, is that despite the full houses at Kensington Oval, the CPLT20 has been losing money. According to CEO, Damien O’Donohue, and COO, Pete Russell, unless the government comes up with at least US$1 million, it probably will not be back, not if another territory comes with the money.
