The Caribbean Premier League (CPL)’s Cricket Tournament Committee (CTC) has announced that the result of the final between Barbados Tridents and Guyana Amazon Warriors is valid and that there would be no changes. Guyana had objected to the result as their run-chase was marred by rain time and again and ultimately, Barbados won on the Duckworth-Lewis (D/L) method.

The CTC said that the Match Referee had done the right thing by declaring Barbados the winners by the D/L method. The press release also stated, “The Match Referee’s report clearly indicates an enquiry by Damien O Donohoe CEO of CPL and Charles Wilkin QC member of the Tournament Committee if in the interests of the Game and especially the fans the full match could be played without resort to the Duckworth-Lewis rules.  To this, the consent of both Captains was required and that was not forthcoming. Hence they were informed that, according to the Playing Conditions they did not have the authority to make such a ruling.”

PJ Patterson, the chairman of the CTC was quoted, “The CPL has succeeded in reinvigorating the passion for cricket across the region and has in two short years established its own distinctive brand and earned exciting market appeal.  Nothing must be done to impair its image or erode its credibility.”

While stating that the result of the match is valid, the CTC did state that it will not object if this is further referred to the International Cricket Council (ICC).
