Decision stands!


The Barbados Tridents will hold on to the 2014 Caribbean Premier League title after a CPL’s Cricket Tournament Committee (CTC) today issued a statement dismissing the formal complaint by the Guyana Amazon Warriors.

The committee ruled that it has no authority nor does it find good reason under the CPL Tournament Rules to reverse or nullify the result.

At the same time, the committee said it would offer no objection to the matter being referred to the International Cricket Council if the Amazon Warriors wish to pursue the matter further.

The Barbados Tridents were crowned champions by a slender margin of eight runs on Duckworth-Lewis in the rain-affected final played on August 16 at Warner Park, St Kitts.

The Amazon Warriors contested the result, stating that the match was biased.

However, committee chairman PJ Patterson said, “Having carefully considered the report of the Match Referee and the arguments raised by the Guyana Amazon Warriors the CTC has concluded that there are no grounds for the result of the final to be reversed or nullified.

The CPL has succeeded in reinvigorating the passion for cricket across the region and has in two short years established its own distinctive brand and earned exciting market appeal. Nothing must be done to impair its image or erode its credibility,” Patterson added.

    What foolishness them talking about? Who they think invent the Duckworth-Lewis to benefit themselves? Nobody never challenged the Powers at be decision, not even when they introduce one bouncer per over, which i use to enjoy watching the English Batsmen Duckin and Benup. Bad sports men. Guyana Amazon Warriors need to take the weight off their kit, suck salt and drink a malt. Congratulations Barbados Tridents!!

    Why didn’t anyone talk about when Ramdin threw his bat and gloves on the ground after an umpire gave the other batsman out? Are they trying to sidetrack people from him being very disrespectful? smh and congrats Barbados Tridents

    Instead of protesting the result, Guyana should have disciplined their captain for his disrespectful display. They should be fined as a team for bringing the game into disrepute.
