St. Kitts-Nevis and Trinidad and Tobago will be co-hosting the 2016 NAGICO Super50 tournament next year…beginning on January 7.
The tournament will have 27 matches over 18 days in the biggest, senior regional domestic 50-overs-a-side tournament to be ever staged by the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB).
Defending champions, Trinidad and Tobago Red Force, will open their account against the Jamaica Scorpions in a Zone A encounter; while Barbados Pride will face newcomers, ICC Americas.
In the other group, beaten finalist Guyana Jaguars will face the Windward Islands Volcanoes; while the Leeward Islands Hurricanes will face the CCC Marooners at the Warner Park Stadium in St. Kitts Nevis.
In the preliminary round, each team is scheduled to play six matches in a non-elimination format and the top two teams in each zone will move to the semi-finals …due to start, Wednesday, January 20 in T&T at the Queen’s Park Oval.
Winners from the semis will then play in the final on Saturday, January 23 also at the Queen’s Park Oval.
Last year’s final was a one-sided affair when the Red Force clobbered the Jaguars by a 135-run margin.
