Despite reports to the contrary, the organisers of the Limacol Caribbean Premier League (CPL) has advised that the matches scheduled to take place in Guyana will take place in Guyana as planned.

To be clear, plans for the staging of the Limacol CPL are in no way affected by the passage of Cricket Administration Bill in Guyana.

The Guyana matches are as follows:

Thursday 17th July at 7:30pm: Guyana Amazon Warriors v The Red Steel – Providence Stadium, Guyana

Saturday 19th July at 4:00pm: Guyana Amazon Warriors v St. Lucia Zouks – Providence Stadium, Guyana

Sunday 20th July at 4:00pm: Guyana Amazon Warriors v Jamaica Tallawahs – Providence Stadium, Guyana

“We are looking forward to a second successful staging of the Biggest Party in Sport and urge the fans to come out and support their teams.” a release said.

Limacol CPL is a franchise-based T20 format cricket tournament that combines two of the most compelling aspects of Caribbean life – dramatic cricket and a vibrant Carnival atmosphere.

The inaugural Limacol CPL, billed as “the Biggest Party in Sport”, featured six teams competing throughout the region in August  2013 – Jamaica Tallawahs, The Red Steel, Barbados Tridents, Guyana Amazon Warriors, St. Lucia Zouks, Antigua Hawksbills.  The Jamaica Tallawahs, captained by Chris Gayle, emerged as champions.

Limacol CPL II will take place from July 11 to August 16.
