BRIDGETOWN--Organisers of the Limacol
Caribbean Premier League say they are pleased
with the second edition of the regional Twenty20
tournament, despite a lukewarm start two weeks
The showpiece got off to a slow start, with notice-
ably empty stands at the first match in Grenada
earlier this month and moderate attendances in
Antigua but CPL CEO Damien O Donohoe said it
was encouraging to see increased numbers of spec-
tators attending the matches around the region since.
For the first time, Grenada s National Stadium
hosted the opening ceremony and the first three
matches before action moved onto Antigua and
Guyana, the latter of which featured full houses for
The Barbados leg, which bowled off last Wednesday,
saw a capacity crowd for Saturday s final game while
matches in Trinidad and Tobago were played before
a packed Queen s Park Oval.
O Donohoe said the sparse crowds for the opening
matches had not impacted the tournament nega-
One of the major changes to this year s tournament
has been the start time for games. Last year, virtually
all games were played at 7 pm, but the current cam-

were necessary to this year s schedule because of the
growing popularity of the tournament.
The CPL, which was inaugurated in 2013, replaced
the West Indies Cricket Board-run Caribbean T20
which followed on from the Stanford Twenty20, cre-

Allen Stanford. He is serving a 104-year jail sentence
in the US for fraud.
While the Twenty20 version of the game is gaining
momentum in the region and worldwide, cricket
enthusiasts have raised concerns that it may be to
the detriment of the traditional Test matches.
However, O Donohoe said the T20 has had a major
role to play in renewing interest in the game, especially
Six franchises--Antigua Hawksbills, Barbados Tri-
dents, Guyana Amazon Warriors, Jamaica Tallawahs,
T&T Red Steel and St Lucia Zouks--are participating
in the CPL.
The final is scheduled for August 17 at Warner

A weightlifter from Papua New Guinea who
competed at the Commonwealth Games faces
trial over an alleged sexual assault at a Glasgow
The Glasgow Sheriff Court says Toua Udia plead-
ed not guilty and will go on trial Friday.
Police say the 22-year-old lifter was arrested

Monday at a supermarket near the athletes vil-
Udia was quoted as telling Australia s Fairfax
media that "it was an accident. I don t want to
spoil my reputation."
Commonwealth Games Federation chief executive
Mike Hooper says the criminal case against Udia
"certainly didn t impact on his ability to compete
because there was no condition placed upon him."
Hooper added: "There is a presumption of inno-

Udia competed Sunday in the 77-kilogramme
division, finishing ninth.
