PORT-OF-SPAIN, Trinidad – Caribbean Super Station will air live ball-by-ball coverage of the NAGICO Super50 2014 tournament for a wide radio audience. Exclusive radio coverage will commence daily, shortly before the start of play.
The NAGICO Super50 will be played in Trinidad and Tobago from Thursday, January 30 to Saturday, February 15. Matches will be at the historic Queen’s Park Oval in Port-of-Spain from 2pm and the picturesque Shaw Park in Tobago from 9am.

The panel will also include Andrew Mason, who has over 25 years in the field. The expert analysis will be provided by former West Indies players Colin Croft, Tony Gray and Philo Wallace.
Richard Purcell, Head of the CSS broadcast, said his organisation was delighted to partner with the WICB.
“This is a first for us and we are really excited to be part of the NAGICO Super50 tournament and to be involved in Windies Cricket. We jumped at the opportunity to offer exclusive radio coverage to our audience,” Purcell noted.
“We have assembled a truly remarkable team of commentators to bring the matches to the fans – with some of the best cricket commentators and journalists in the region in our box. Fans will hear the ‘best in the business’ as we bring years of knowledge and understanding of their favourite game.”
Nelecia Yeates the WICB’s Commercial Manager outlined: “We wanted to bring the NAGICO Super50 to our ‘super fans’ and we found the ideal partner in Caribbean Super Station. We know CSS will deliver this special event to our radio audience in a very special way. They have some fantastic ideas and initiatives which will be part of a superb NAGICO Super50 tournament.”
The champions will take home the Clive Lloyd Trophy – named in honour of the legendary captain of the 1975 and 1979 World Cup winning teams.
