[]St.Kitts and Nevis is hard at work in trying to secure a franchise for the 2014 edition of the Limacol Caribbean Premier League.

Reports emanating out of the country indicate that a recent tour by the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Caribbean Premier League (CPL) Pete Russell has produced pleasure with the infrastructural developments taking place.

He is especially pleased with the works being conducted at the Warner Park Cricket Stadium, which has been outfitted with lights

“I’ve been very impressed with everything that the country is looking to do certainly from a sporting perspective, so the new stadium with the lights is fantastic,” Russell said.

“The infrastructures around the Caribbean, in terms of what you are used to in other international markets, are a challenge. So to see a complex which is obviously very close to being completed, spend the money and the time investing in lights of that stature, it’s only going to benefit St. Kitts but hopefully it will allow more international cricket to be played here.”

He said plainly that the 2014 edition of the five-week tournament will see several new territories and more matches but declined to go into further details.

His trip to St.Kitts also included meetings with Prime Minister Denzil Douglas and the Minister of Sports Glenn Phillip.
