Bridgetown: Telecommunications major Digicel will sponsor the inaugural Caribbean Premier League (CPL) to be played in July-August.

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. Four overseas players and six leading regional cricketers have already signed up for the CPL which will be played at venues across the region.

They include former Australian captain Ricky Ponting and former New Zealand skipper Ross Taylor as well as regional stars Darren Sammy, Dwayne Bravo, Chris Gayle, Sunil Narine, Kieron Pollard and Marlon Samuels.
