As the curtains come down on the 2013 Limacol Caribbean Premier League (LCPL), the St. Lucia Zouks team are the first team to congratulate the Jamaica Tallawahs on their victory in the first-ever tournament of its kind in the Caribbean.
“The finals was everything it was expected to be, full of energy, excitement and a fighting spirit. The choice to send in the Warriors to bat obviously paid off and the Tallawahs will now go down in history as the winners of this fantastic form of cricket in the inaugural Limacol CPL,” said Darren Sammy, captain of the St. Lucia Zouks.
Sammy also had high praise for the Guyana Amazon Warriors who played outstanding cricket throughout the tournament and gave a shout out to all the Zoukers who stood by the team and continue to lend their support.
“We might have lost but the Zouks fans are the winners in every sense of the word. They brought with them the maximum energy and enthusiasm and we couldn’t have asked for a more supportive group of fans wherever we played. Thanks to all the Zoukers. We promise that next year we’ll be coming back stronger, playing harder and staying longer.”
LCPL’s Media & Accreditation Officer for the St. Lucia franchise, Marie-Antoinette Mora, said that the LCPL was everything that was expected and so much more.
“The Limacol CPL is huge for the Caribbean. From the coming together of the venue teams in Trinidad & Tobago to map out a strategy for the planning and execution of the LCPL to the opening ceremony and now the closing presentation, the Limacol CPL has brought with it an air of freshness, the ability to unite and a spirit of fun and fervour. It reignited the passion of our Caribbean people for the sport that we love so much. We can’t wait for the LCPL 2014,” she said.
The 2014 and 2015 tournaments will take place from July 5 to August 10 and June 21 to July 26, respectively.
