Saint Lucia Stars Out Of CPL

The St Lucia Stars will not be participating in the 2019 Caribbean Premier League which begins next month, it has been announced.

The announcement came in a statement from CPL Limited.

According to the statement, on 7 August 2019, CPL Limited terminated the participation agreement between it and Royal Sports Club, LLC, the entity that operated the St Lucia Stars franchise.

“As a result  of that termination, Royal Sports Club, LLC no longer has the right to operate a team to compete in the Caribbean Premier League tournament, and the St Lucia Stars will not be participating in the 2019 Caribbean Premier League, which begins on 4 September 2019,” it noted.

CPL did not elaborate on the reason for the termination.

CPL Limited  disclosed that it is in the process of establishing and operating a new franchise to be based in St Lucia that will participate in the 2019 Caribbean Premier League.

It explained that more information about that new franchise will follow in due course but asserted that CPL Limited will be making no further public comment at this time.

St Lucia Stars was  formerly known as St Lucia Zouks, one of six teams created in 2013 for the CPL cricket.

The team was re-branded as St Lucia Stars for the 2017 season.

The team was led by two-time ICC World T20 winning captain Daren Sammy but has never gone on to lift the CPL trophy.
