Bridgetown, Barbados - ESPN Caribbean brings exclusive coverage of the Caribbean’s marquee 50-over competition featuring the region’s One-Day superstars commencing January 30.

ESPN Caribbean will present live, exclusive coverage of the region’s elite One Day International (ODI) tournament, the NAGICO Super50, from January 30 until February 16 from Trinidad and Tobago. 

The matches held in Trinidad will air live from 1:50 p.m. (Eastern Caribbean Time) on the ESPN Caribbean and ESPN 2 Caribbean television networks and on ESPN Play (www.espnplay.com) -- ESPN’s multiscreen live and on-demand broadband service. 

The competition is the West Indies Cricket Board’s premier limited-overs event. Defending champions, Windward Islands, head Zone A along with Jamaica, Guyana and foreign guests, Ireland. 

Zone B consists of last year’s beaten finalist, Combined Campuses and Colleges (C.C.C.), as well as the hosts, Trinidad and Tobago, Barbados and Leeward Islands. Matches will be played at the Queen’s Park Oval in Trinidad and Shaw Park in Tobago as the teams vie for the coveted Clive Lloyd Trophy, named after the revered batsman and former West Indies skipper. 

The top two teams will advance from each Zone into the Semi-Finals. These will be held on February 12 and 13 with the Finals slated for February 15. ESPN Caribbean will also air ESPN Cricket Report during this knockout phase, hosted by Barry Wilkinson and analyst, West Indian legend Colin Croft.
