The WICB Bid Review Committee will now review all bids and make selections for two venues for each year’s tournament.
The venues selected will be announced on Monday, 15th November.
Importantly the WICB requires that venues must have international standard lighting (to facilitate night matches) and at least one replay screen, if they are to be favourably considered for hosting Caribbean T20 which will be a live televised event.
“It is a new model inviting territories to host matches in regional tournaments and appropriately it starts with the most exciting of the tournaments – Caribbean T20, which proved to be successful in its launch in 2010,” said Chairman of the WICB Bid Review Committee Gregory Shillingford.
“The territories which have submitted bids and confident of meeting the criteria will be held to meeting standards, and WICB will be held to meeting obligations, in terms of both cost and benefits,” Shillingford added.
