Head of the Myst Party Stand, Taslim Gordon says,

“When West Indians come together, there is a special vibe and energy that is created. Add to this, elements of carnival, pulsating Soca music and the game of cricket, you have the magic that has become known as a Party Stand. Myst will continue to do our part in keeping the game of cricket an exciting experience for all … win, lose or draw.”

Commercial Director, Dominic Warne, is delighted to partner with Myst Carnival,

“The party stand is a key part of the cricket-watching experience in the West Indies and we’re delighted to work with Myst to bring their mix of Cricket and Carnival to enhance the experience for fans and players.  The excitement should move up a level after the great performance in Barbados and we hope the fans come out to turn up the noise and party in Antigua and show the world that it’s our game.”
