Trinidad and Tobago will once again host the semi-finals and final of the 2016 HERO Caribbean Premier League.
This latest development comes after reports emerged suggesting that the twin-island republic had made a late bid to oust Guyana as the country with the right to stage the final three games of the competition.
Guyana’s Minister of Sport Dr Rupert Roopnarine reportedly confirmed Wednesday that Trinidad and Tobago had outbid Guyana to host the Caribbean showpiece. For the past few weeks Guyana had been in negotiations with the organisers of the Caribbean Premier League with the intention of hosting the finals.
At first it had been announced that the CPL and Guyana had come to an agreement.
Belatedly though, it was announced that Guyana were seeking to lower the figure the CPL had asked the country to pay for the rights.
The Guyanese Government had been hoping that the finals would add to the Golden Jubilee celebrations set for the summer.
