Windwards, Jamaica to open Super50
Defending champions Windward Islands will clash with Jamaica in the first match on the opening day of the NAGICO Super50 2014 Tournament on Thursday, January 30 at the Queen’s Park Oval.
An action-packed tournament is anticipated featuring 15 games in just over two weeks including matches at the picturesque Shaw Park in Tobago.
The final will also be played at the Oval on Saturday, February 15 with Sunday, February 16 set aside as the reserve rain day.
“As we start the new year the atmosphere is certainly building as we prepare for what will be a superb NAGICO Super50 2014 Tournament in Trinidad and Tobago,” said Michael Muirhead, CEO of the WICB.
“Most of the matches will be played at Queen’s Park Oval, which is one of the leading cricketing venues in the world. We are also delighted that the fans in Tobago will get a golden opportunity to see their favourite players in action as well.”
The WICB on Friday unveiled the fixtures for the event which will be contested by eight teams in two zones. Zone A will include the champs Windward Islands, Jamaica, Guyana and Ireland while Zone B will include hosts Trinidad & Tobago, Barbados, Leeward Islands and Combined Campuses & Colleges – last year’s losing finalists.
Shaw Park will host two matches in Zone B: the marquee contest between arch-rivals Trinidad and Tobago and Barbados on February 6; and CCC vs Leewards a day earlier.
