CPL ranked 4th most popular T20 league
The Caribbean Premier League
(CPL) has been ranked the fourth
most popular T20 league in the
world by fans who took part in a
survey conducted by ISportsleague
The CPL after ive years is the big-
gest sporting event in the Caribbean
and has attracted millions of fans
from around the world. The most
popular T20 league in the world
is the Indian Premier League (IPL)
which this year have been given
a window to play by the ICC, the
CWI President Dave Cameron
world governing body for the
sport. This cash rich league is
followed by the Big Bash which
is staged by Cricket Australia
(CA) Down Under. Coming in
at number three is the Natwest
Blast in England, with the CPL
The CPL comes in ahead of
the RamSlam league in South
Africa, the Pakistan Super
League, which get going in a
week time, the Bangladesh
Premier League, the Masters
Champions league, the Sri
Lanka Premier League and the
Nepal Premier League.
The CPL has struggled inan-
cially to keep afloat but there is
great potential for the league to
rise in popularity as more and
more international interest
President of CWI, Dave Cam-
eron on Friday remarked that
his board was concerned about
the CPL, "Cricket West Indies
has major concerns with the
CPL. We need to ensure that we
have maximum young players
being showcased and we are
also concerned that we have
players outside of the system
who are given opportunities
and they are not registering
within the Barbados franchise,
the Jamaica franchise, etc.
"We are also concerned that
the owners are losing money,
and if they continue to lose
money then they will essen-
tially pull out and CPL falls flat.
We may not have to break the
long-term contract we have
with CPL, they may give it
"We don't want it back, but
we would like to modify it.
There is a way to look at how
we can get greater participa-
tion and upside from the CPL
going forward," he said.
"I know people talk about
the numbers in the stands and
the fanfare, but sports today
is about television rights and
because we do not have Indian
players in our leagues, the In-
dian broadcasters are not pay-
ing any money for the cricket
and the UK broadcasters are
not paying any meaningful
money," he said.
