(ESPN) When the New England Patriots defeated the New York Giants 38-35 to end the 2007 regular season, they became the first NFL team to go undefeated since the league expanded to a 16-game format. But the game exposed vulnerabilities that gave the Giants a blueprint to beat the Patriots in their rematch in Super Bowl XLII 17-14.

Last Sunday, the Guyana Amazon Warriors defeated Barbados Tridents to take their CPL record unbeaten streak to 11 matches by posting a Providence Stadium record total of 218 for 3 behind Brandon King’s record century. What was lost in the shuffle of that match was that the Tridents actually made a serious fist of the chase, ending on 188 with Jonathan Carter top-scoring to make 49 off 26, as some vulnerabilities started to appear.    Continue reading

It was a combination that influenced Digicel, the Irish mobile-phone company long established in the region and in its cricket, to sign a 50-year agreement with the West Indies Cricket Board, originally through Barbados-based merchant bank Verus International, for the ownership of the Caribbean Premier League (CPL).    Continue reading

Caribbean T-20 Cricket – Commentary

Caribbean T-20 Cricket – Commentary

AUGUST 30, 2013 | BY  |  EDITORIAL

The inaugural season of the Limacol Caribbean Premier League has just been completed and it might be appropriate at this time to reflect on what it means for the region. That the event was successful beyond the wildest expectations of even the most diehard local cricket groupie, is beyond dispute. But while the success might have been most visible in the massive crowds that thronged the venues at every one of the twenty-four games that comprised the tournament, it went beyond that particular boundary.

There was never any doubt as to the exciting nature of Caribbean cricket. Ever since we tore up the international scene from the 1960s, West Indian cricketers were loved throughout the world for their dashing “calypso” cricket.

Consequently, while their fortunes might have waned in the Test arena from the nineties, they were perfect for ODIs and T-20 fixtures.   Continue reading
