Sir Viv calls for return of Hawksbills to CPL

The Hawksbills were replaced by the St Kitts & Nevis Patriots in the CPL last year following a lack of Government support, as well as failure to find a buyer for the franchise which played its matches at the international venue which bears the name of the former West Indies captain.

“The last couple of games we had here, I think we had something that was spectacular enough that, in my opinion, could be classified and classed with any that was held in the region, so yeah there is a purpose for that,” said Sir Viv.

“With all the other huge tournaments around the world, our guys can be showcased where they are in a reasonable enough position for them to highlight their skills and maybe draw attention to other franchises around the world because that I think is a huge outlet.”

At the time of its removal, Pete Russell, chief operating officer of the CPL, said the Hawksbills franchise had not been terminated, but was left out as the format and the tournament window could not accommodate seven teams. (CMC)
