The CPL in a statement stated that the sponsorship will be a multi-year deal of a significant investment from Digicel, reports CMC. “We are thrilled to have Digicel as our partner in this venture,” said CPL founder Ajmal Khan of Verus International.

“Its wealth of experience in the region and in West Indies cricket will be an invaluable asset to the CPL, ensuring its initial and long-term success,” Khan said.
