In a massive boost for both USA and Canada in terms of development of their game in the 50-overs format, both the countries have been confirmed to take part in the 2018 Cricket West Indies regional Super50 tournament from Oct 03rd – 28th, 2018 at various venues across Trinidad and Barbados.

The Brian Lara Academy, Queen’s Park Oval, Kensington Oval, 3Ws and Windward have been announced as the venues in Trinidad and Barbados, at which the Combined Campuses and College (CCC) Marooners along with USA, Canada and Windies “B” team’s will be joining the 6 regional franchise team’s to form the 10-team tournament.

USA took part in the 2017 edition of the tournament and this will be the first time when both USA and Canada will be taking part at the same time. Following the two cracker-thriller’s played between the two countries in the recently concluded ICC Americas World T20 Group “A” qualifiers in Morrisville, North Carolina, the Super50 will provide much needed exposure for both the countries in the 50-overs format.

USA are scheduled to play in ICC World Cricket League Division 3 in Nov 2018 in Oman and the timing of Super50 couldn’t have been more perfect for them, as they vie to secure one of the two available qualification spots from the tournament and join Canada in ICC WCL Division 2, to be played sometime later in 2019. Both USA and Canada will get to play a minimum of 8 matches each during the double round-robin group stage of the tournament (Further, depending upon qualification from the group stage).

Windies “B” squad have had good outings in Global T20 Canada and Canada CricketFest tournaments in the past couple of months and Super50 will give the players more exposure to impress the national selectors ahead of the all important ICC Cricket World Cup in 2019.

ESPN Caribbean will once again showcase 13 matches from the tournament played at Kensington Oval, live on TV with all the remaining matches in the tournament to be streamed live on www.windiescricket.com and Cricket West Indies YouTube Channel. USA are scheduled to play 3 matches at Kensington Oval during the group stages of the tournament and getting Live coverage from ESPN Caribbean would help in a big way for TV exposure for players.
