CWI continues to support the PCL

first_imgCRICKET West Indies (CWI) continues to streamline and improve the Professional Cricket League (PCL) in the region for the sake of development of the sport.The board’s initial arrangement was to fund the league for a couple years and then let the territories take over but according to CWI director and president of the T&T Cricket Board (TTCB), Azim Bassarath, “CWI has and will continue to take care of the PCL financially, in order to keep the players employed and to offer them the comfort of knowing that there is a salary there for them and they can concentrate on their cricket.“We have seen so much positives come out of this arrangement that it has been one of the better programmes put in place in West Indies cricket for a very long time now.The idea which was initially touted by the president of CWI, Dave Cameron, has really taken off and with stiff economic times being experienced all over the Caribbean, the territories found it difficult to find investors.“This by no means indicated that the PCL was not good. In fact, having discussions with investors in my capacity as president of the TTCB, many of them have indicated that the PCL is what would take West Indies cricket right back up the ladder.They have been warning though that we must continue to work the model all the time to make sure we have the right equation in place and we have been doing that at the CWI.”This year, the PCL will enter its fourth season, having bowled off in 2014. “We are looking towards another good season in the PCL and what is great to see is that the selectors are paying attention to the players who go out there week after week and represent their franchise.The path is clear for our players. All they need to do is put down the hard work, go out there and perform well and they will be playing for the West Indies.”The six franchises, hailing from each of the West Indies territories, compete in the Regional Four-Day Competition yearly.They are also automatically included in the Regional Super50 Competition, which takes place during the first quarter of each year.These competitions are to not only prepare the regional players, but also give the selectors an opportunity to efficiently select the Test and One-Day International squads respectively.The franchises are: Guyana Jaguars, Barbados Pride, Leeward Islands Hurricanes, T&T Red Force, Windward Islands Volcanoes, Jamaica Scorpions.last_img read more
