According to media reports from Nevis, “On the opening evening of the tournament, ESPN brought game one played between the Windwards and CCC but failed to bring the keenly anticipated match up between Jamaica and Guyana—even though it resulted in something of an anticlimax.”
The report went on to say that, “On the evening of 11th January, day two of the tournament, the TV channel brought the first game between Canada and Hampshire but committed the unpardonable sin when they refused to show the second game between the Leewards and Barbados. This sparked off a series of phone calls as cricket enthusiasts tried to determine why the game was not being shown live.”
It has been revealed that the local Caribbean Cable team has already ensured that the games will be available on channel four (4) but apparently has no control over which games are brought live.
“Sports lovers on Nevis are calling for the situation to be immediately rectified as they would love to see all of the matches but are afraid that they may miss out on the crucial contest between Trinidad and Tobago, slated for Thursday, 13th January – significantly the second game of the evening. This match takes on added importance as Nevisian Runako Morton will be making his debut for Trinidad and Tobago against his former team mates,” the report added.
