[www.inewsguyana.com] – The West Indies Cricket Board has announced a three-year sponsorship deal with Nagico Insurances as the new title sponsor for the regional super50 one-day cricket tournament.
The event is the WICB’s marquee limited-overs event and will be known as the Nagico super50 with the winning team taking the Clive Lloyd trophy.
The 2014 event will feature eight teams – Barbados, combined campuses and colleges, Guyana, Jamaica, Leeward Islands, Trinidad & Tobago, Windward Islands and Ireland and will be televised live throughout the Caribbean on ESPN.
Matches will be played from January 30 to February 16 in Trinidad and Tobago and there will be day/night fixtures.
Michael Muirhead, CEO of the WICB, expressed great delight with the new partnership.
The tournament’s host venue was allocated following a commitment from the government of Trinidad and Tobago through the Ministry of Tourism.
President of the West Indies Cricket Board Dave Cameron has promised more training for local and regional umpires while commending them for the ‘utterly thankless job’ they do.
