CPL in Bim

The Barbados leg of the Hero Caribbean Premier League is over.

The home franchise Barbados Tridents will now go on the road taking a 3-1 record with them having lost only one game at Kensington Oval to the St Kitts and Nevis Patriots on Saturday. They defeated the Guyana Amazon Warriors, Jamaica Tallawahs and Trinidad and Tobago Red Steel in earlier games. They next play the St Lucia Zouks in Basseterre on Wednesday.

 There are some doubts as to whether the franchise will be back next year following reported complaints from CPL organisers that no assistance or monetary input has been forthcoming from either the Barbados Government or private sector despite both benefiting substantially from the presence of the franchise in the island.

A similar state of affairs existed in Antigua with the Hawksbills during the 2013 and 2014 tournaments and that country lost their franchise to St Kitts and Nevis this year.

Whatever happens in 2016 Barbados TODAY photojournalist Morissa Lindsay was at Kensington Oval on Saturday to capture these lasting images of the CPL in Bim.
