CARIBBEAN T20 PRELIMINARY ROUND SHIFTED TO ANTIGUAMonday 5th December 2011
The West Indies Cricket Board has shifted the preliminary round of the Caribbean Twenty20 from the Queen’s Park Oval in Trinidad to Sir Vivian Richards Cricket Grounds in Antigua.
The change was necessary for two reasons:
1. High rental fees for the Queen’s Park Oval
2. Unavailability of the Queen’s Park Oval on January 14th
Changes to the schedule are as follows:
1. The matches on January 11th and 19th have been switched. This ensures that Leeward does not have a bye while playing at home.
2. The matches on January 9th have been switched. This switch allows Leeward Islands and Guyana to play the feature match at 8pm.
3. The matches now on the 19th have been switched. This switch allows Guyana to play the feature match at 8pm.
All matches will be broadcast live on ESPN.
Three overseas teams – Netherlands, Canada and Sussex – will compete against seven Caribbean teams with the highest placed Caribbean team going on to represent the region in the Nokia Champions League.
The ten teams have been placed in two groups:
Group A: Trinidad and Tobago, Windward Islands, Guyana, Leeward Islands and Canada
Group B: Jamaica, Barbados, Combined Campuses and Colleges, Netherlands and Sussex
