The excitement of the CG Insurance Super50 Cup is resonating across the West Indies as a network of radio stations across the region commence broadcasting the live ball-by-ball coverage, thanks to CWI’s new and expanded radio commentary partnership with Vibes Radio, Dominica.
The radio coverage commenced on Sunday as 10 stations from Jamaica to Guyana — including for the first time in many years the British Virgin Islands and the US Virgin Islands — carried the calls and analysis of the opening match and the Windward Islands Volcanoes’ victory over the Leeward Islands Hurricanes at the Coolidge Cricket Ground.
Commentary continued on Monday with the second contest, as the Guyana Jaguars beat the Barbados Pride.
The broadcast will run for all matches throughout the tournament, and climax with the grand final on Saturday, February 27.
As a result of the partnership, Vibes Radio will provide digital live radio commentary to fans in the Caribbean and around the world via the Windies Cricket YouTube channel and website http://www.windiescricket.com.
Dominic Warne, CWI’s Commercial Director, has said: “We are delighted to see 10 leading radio stations across the region partnering with CWI and Vibes Radio for the 2020-21 CG Insurance Super50 Cup. This significantly increases the opportunity for fans to access live commentary and be closer to their favourite players and teams. The commentary worked very smoothly, and we’re looking forward to each of the remaining 17 games, including the semi-finals and final, being available.”
