against Victoria in Barrackpore and
conceded first innings to Merry-
boys but struck back and won the

Guillen great hopes for the season
:"We did not get off to the best start
this year but the team is a quality
against Merryboys, the boys would
come back and win the match and
they did. We travel to PowerGen
and they are a tough unit, so we
look forward to a great battle."
PowerGen manager Chaitram
Ramjitsingh is confident for a
turn around from his team, after
a first match loss and an abandon
game against Comets. "The boys
have been working hard and things
have not been working out in their
favour. They are however showing
good signs of improvement with
the bat and we look forward to a
great game against Queen's Park.

is set to begin at 9 am and teams are
asked to make a $20 donation.
"We are extremely excited to con-
tribute again to the cancer aware-
ness programming in the country.
Most of the sponsors are returning
and we welcome a few new compa-
nies committed to the cause," said
The day is expected to be an ex-
citing one with some of T&T's top
local senior and junior players get-
ting in on the action for a worthy
cause. Last year their efforts raised
$10,000 which was later donated to

CPL organisers to weigh up
Singapore bid for finals
emerged as an option to host
this year's Caribbean Premier
League finals if no viable al-
ternatives are forthcoming
from the region, organisers
To date, the finals of the Twen-
ty20 tournament have never been
staged outside of the Caribbean
but CPL chief executive officer,
Damien O'Donohue, said the
government of the glitzy Asian
city-state had put forward a bid
to host the play-off matches.
"We have an approach from
the government of Singapore to
look at possibly hosting the finals
there. It will be a huge step and
one that I would only want to look
at as a last resort," the Irishman
told the Nation newspaper here.
"They have a new cricket fa-
cility that is absolutely world
class and they saw that we took
the game successfully to the US,
and made an approach to see if we
could consider taking the games,
especially the finals to Singapore.
"That's the thing about these
franchise leagues. You can
take the games and move them
The CPL is in its fifth year fol-
lowing its debut season in 2013,
and has morphed into one of the
most exciting T20 tournaments
on the global calendar.
So far, it has managed to attract
superstars like South Africans AB
de Villiers and Dale Steyn, along
with Sri Lankans Mahela Jay-
awardene and Kumar Sangakkara.
However, O'Donohue said the
tournament was yet to turn a
real profit and staging the finals
in Singapore could be a huge step
towards monetising the entity.
"For us the Indian market is
hugely important. For Singapore,
it would open us up to the Indian
market," O'Donohue explained.
"Taking the finals there would
be a big step and negative step for
CPL because it is a Caribbean
tournament and it is the Carib-
bean that makes it so special."
He continued: "At the end
of the day, we have invested a
massive amount of money into
the CPL. It continues to require
more investment. We thought
we'd break even last year. We
haven't done so yet.
"We need to look at other op-
tions if Caribbean countries can-
not come up with the deals that
are required to hold some of these
The CPL is set to be staged from
August 1 to September 9 and will
once again feature six franchises --
Barbados Tridents, Guyana Am-
azon Warriors, reigning champi-
ons Jamaica Tallawahs, Trinbago
Knight Riders, St Kitts and Nevis
Patriots and St Lucia Zouks.
For the first time last year,
matches were staged outside of
the Caribbean when Central Bro-
ward Regional Park in Florida,
United States was used as a venue
for some preliminary games.
