Jamaica Gleaner / In considering the Hero Caribbean Premier League (CPL) tournament mutually beneficial to regional economies, Jamaica Tallawahs Managing Director Ron Parikh is of the view that Jamaica’s Sabina Park would be the perfect venue for this year’s final.
CPL, the domestic Twenty20 cricket league in the West Indies, is to be played among seven countries – Trinidad and Tobago, St Kitts and Nevis, Guyana, Barbados, Jamaica, St Lucia, and the United States, which hosted last season’s final in the state of Florida.
HOPESOFA HOMEFINALE This year, Parikh, whose team will be defending the title, wants the grand finale at home.
“We would love to see the finals in Jamaica with the support of our partners and government, and hope to see it in Sabina Park,” he said.
He was quick to point out that the CPL is economically beneficial to each country and should be backed by their respective governments.
“The key is that not only the CPL, but also each team gets continued support from their respective regional government, as it’s mutually benefiting to promote this economically and financially viable sporting event in the Caribbean,” Parikh told The Gleaner .
CPL is dubbed the biggest party in sports, and according the Tallawahs director, it grows bigger and better, each year.
“Tallawahs’ brand continues to grow internationally and continues to thrive each year along with the popularity of CPL, not only in the Caribbean, but also the US frontier,” he reasoned.
TALLAWAHs BRAND He has made it clear that the Jamaica Tallawahs brand would grow in size and popularity again this season. It will bowl off in June.
“We look forward to build a bigger fan base and continue to support our local Tallawahs fan base,” he outlined.
“We have some great local partners that have supported us in the past, and we hope to receive continued support from our partners to build up the momentum coming in to the home games at Sabina Park,” continued Parikh.
The Jamaica Tallawahs owners will be looking to rev up even more support at their Sabina Park home, and across the island.
The managing director was clear that the two-time champions will be going all out for a third title this year.
“We have a strong team for our 2017 championship chase, and all the team members are equally qualified and talented to represent the Tallawahs and go through the hard road it is to win an unprecedented third championship,” he underlined.
Defending their title will be hard to do, but Parikh remains confident they will have a strong support staff and players to do it.
